Dy’er Sez: Taking a page from the former AG’s playbook (or vice versa) DICK apparently used the ‘I don’t remember’ ploy 72 times as he was interviewed by former prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald over the Valerie Plame leak in 2004.
So either he was lying (gee, what a shock there) or he was totally unfit for the office he held. Maybe it was a bit of both.
Why these people from the last tyrannical administration are not in jail or executed for treason is beyond me. But, then again, considering how corrupt our government is it really doesn’t surprise me at all.

AP admits: Cheney equivocated to the FBI
Federal prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald famously declared in the Valerie Plame affair that “there is a cloud over the vice president.” Last week’s release of an FBI interview summary of Dick Cheney’s answers in the criminal investigation underscores why Fitzgerald felt that way. On 72 occasions, according to the 28-page FBI summary, Cheney equivocated to the FBI during his lengthy May 2004 interview, saying he could not be certain in his answers to questions about matters large and small in the Plame controversy.
The Cheney interview reflects a team of prosecutors and FBI agents trying to find out whether the leaks of Plame’s CIA identity were orchestrated at the highest level of the White House and carried out by, among others, I. Lewis “Scooter” Libby, Cheney’s chief of staff.
