NATO Apologizes to Libyan Rebels

Airstrikes Thursday in NATO’s campaign against Moammar Gadhafi’s forces killed at least four Libyan rebels in a “friendly fire” accident, the second in a week. After a bit of foot-dragging by the British deputy commander of the air campaign, NATO apologized to the rebels.

Cheney Power-Naps as Calif. Burns

Instead of being alert in Wednesday’s Cabinet session about California’s wildfire crisis and perhaps offering some helpful action items for the team, Vice President Dick Cheney apparently decided it was snooze o’clock and got a little shuteye at the meeting table, although a White House flack insisted he was simply “meditating.”

Cheney Cops to the Obvious

In an interview with Time magazine, Dick Cheney said it was “premature” to have said “we were over the hump in terms of violence.”

‘The Most Powerful Person You’ve Never Heard Of’

It’s David Addington, Dick Cheney’s new chief of staff, who has been instrumental in fashioning legal arguments to support presidential-sanctioned torture, the attempt to discredit Joe Wilson, and the bogus Niger uranium story. U.S. News has the goods in this fantastic profile.
Sickened by those “signing statements” that Bush uses to essentially ignore the laws Congress has passed? Addington has his fingerprints all over those.
