"Vice President Dick Cheney ( news - web sites) spent Monday night at an undisclosed location outside Washington. Aides said there was no specific threat against Cheney, but the anniversary has produced a heightened buzz in the intelligence community and officials want to protect the continuity of government in case of an attack."
Ok, just to point this out... they keep evaucating Cheney, but not Bush. Are they actually evacuating the VP because they don't want the power behind the presidency to disappear? In other words, it's no loss if Bush goes down, but if Cheney disappears...
I know, chain of command, get them out of the line of fire so at least someone survives and holds authority in case of a large attack on a single area. But just ask yourself: if you'd put a cowboy out front who was provoking an attack, could gain major benefit from him (God forbid) gets hit... wouldn't you want to be out of the way?
No accusations -- I've got no proof. Just a lurking suspicion.Posted by Ted Stevko at September 10, 2002 12:36 PM
