Has the Secret Service Become the Bush Regime's Goon Squad?
There's one detail about Cheney's shooting of Harry Whittington that particularly bothers me, in part because it seems to have gotten no attention:
When the police arrived at Katharine Armstrong's ranch to investigate the report of a shooting, they were refused entrance by the Secret Service. Yes, really. Officers of the nation's elite law-enforcment agency prevented enforcement of the law.
If the so-called liberal media bothered to mention this little detail at all, it was buried deep, as in this Associated Press report about how the incident was just fodder for jokes, really.
Shouldn't we be worried about the Secret Service having been so thoroughly subverted by the Bush regime?
