Shredding Truck Was Heading to Cheney’s

Posted on Oct 30, 2006
Shredding Truck
From Wonkette

A Wonkette reader snapped this photo on of a document shredding truck headed to Dick Cheney’s compound at the Naval Observatory on Oct. 19. Perhaps coincidentally, the truck is operated by the same company the Secret Service contracted with for “Pickup & Destruction Of Sensitive Waste Material.”

  • Says Wonkette: You better get crackin’, Dick—that evidence won’t destroy itself!
  • (h/t: HuffPo)


    The Mid-Atlantic Shredding Services truck making its way up to the Cheney compound at the Naval Observatory.

    Fun fact: Mid-Atlantic Shredding Services has been contracted by the Secret Service for our Executive Branch’s record-not-keeping needs.

      The present contractor providing Pickup & Destruction of Sensitive Waste Material services is Mid Atlantic Shredding Services and the current rate is $0.095 cents per lbs.

    You better get crackin’, Dick—that evidence won’t destroy itself!

    He can have that shredding truck going full blast 24/7 outside his office for as long as he wants but it’ll still turn out that, following his impeachment by Congress, he’ll be on trial at the International Court of Criminal Justice for his crimes against humanity.

    Looks like a heavy duty operation…peanuts compared to the 2.5 TB Able Danger destroyed before the details on their 9/11 patsies could get fetched up before a Grand Jury.
