The road to hell is paved with good intentions. First it was to stop terrorists (legitimate). Then it devolved into some sort of broad surveillance resembling Bentham's Panopticon.

Personally, I've always preferred having eyes and ears on the ground rather than dredging anyone and everyone's communications.

Thanks for your service Dick, but we'll take it from here.

Thanks for your service Dick...

I don't know if I'd go that far. As far as I can see, Cheney is just another typical DC politician. From Wikipedia:

When Cheney became eligible for the draft, during the Vietnam War, he applied for and received five draft deferments. In 1989, The Washington Post writer George C. Wilson interviewed Cheney as the next Secretary of Defense; when asked about his deferments, Cheney reportedly said, "I had other priorities in the '60s than military service".

Of course, it is possible that the Washington post writer is lying. But somehow I don't think so.
