    A Penchant For Ignorance

    A Penchant For Ignorance

    By Jon Gold
    10/18/2007

    We have often seen Dick Cheney described as "a vice president with a penchant for secrecy." PBS Frontline just aired a special report entitled, "Cheney's Law" which said that "from the beginning, the Vice President set the style, secrecy. Vice President Cheney is an extremely secretive public official. He himself doesn't write things down, doesn't use email, because he doesn't want to even raise the possibility that his actions could someday be exposed which could constrain what he wants to do now."

    One thing I noticed, and was EXTREMELY disappointed about regarding the PBS "special report" was how they almost completely skipped over 9/11. They essentially said, "something happened they could not have imagined", and moved on. This has been the trend of MANY "special reports" over the years, so I guess I shouldn't be surprised or disappointed.

    This "trend" is not just exclusive to "special reports", but is also practiced by many people, and many organizations that supposedly stand for everything Cheney & Co. do not.

    For whatever reason, the very event that created the "Post 9/11 World" is COMPLETELY off limits.

    I have a very simple question.

    Why does Dick Cheney's "penchant for secrecy" apply to everything EXCEPT 9/11?

    That wasn't the point.

    I think you mean "penchant" for secrecy.

    And, yes, you are right: Nobody talks about his secrecy surrounding 9/11.

    I fixed it. Both in the title, and in the quotes from CNN.

    How about that. They do.

    I wish I got paid as much as a CNN transcriber to notice these things. ;-)
