Cheney Wanted To Use U.S. Army On Home Soil

by Ben Hoffman

Vice-President Dick Cheney wanted to use the arrest of the Lackawanna Six accused terrorists as an advertisement of America’s might and resolve on the first anniversary of 9/11, says a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist.

Ron Suskind, author of The Way of the World, a book about the Bush administration’s misdeeds in the “war on terror,” told MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow that “Cheney had his eye on the 9/11 anniversary, he wanted a big show, a show of force, a show of resolve, a show of expanded power, and that’s part of what I understand was driving Cheney’s desire to send troops into downtown Lackawanna.”

On Friday, RAW STORY reported on claims that Cheney had wanted to use US troops to arrest the Lackawanna Six in September of 2002, a move that would have violated the long-standing Posse Comitatus Act, which forbids the use of the US Army on home soil.

How about this coming September 17 — to commemerate the 222nd aniversary of the U.S. Constitution — we arrest Dick Cheney for the treasonist crimes he committed against our country while in office.

  1. This one made me think of just how scared they must have been. Or did they hold our democracy in even less regard than I thought?
