(Dec. 10, 2009) — In a little noticed interview last week, former Vice-President Dick Cheney accused Barack Hussein Obama of treason.
Chris Matthews’ Harball news hour featured Cheney’s comments under the title: “Dick Cheney accuses Obama of treason.”
But the actual comments were made by Cheney on Count Down with Keith Olbermann:
Cheney’s actual words were in regard to Holder’s decision, at Obama’s request, to move the trial of the 9/11 conspirators to New York City. Cheney’s words were:
“I think we are going to give aide and comfort to the enemy.
“I think it will make Kalid Shek Mohammend something of a hero in certain circles, especially in the radical regions of Islam around the world; it will put him on the map.
“He will be as important or more important than Osama Bin Laden. And we will will have made it possible.”
You can watch Cheney yourself through this video link.
Aiding and abetting the enemy is listed in the U. S. Constitution as one of the grounds for a formal accusation of treason.
That same Constitution specifies that candidates for the presidency be natural born citizens; and U.S. Statute Title 3, Chapter I, § 15 specifies that the President of the Senate during the Joint Session of Congress to call for objections, to the electoral votes presented by each state, for each and every state, during the tallying of the votes of the Electoral College. Cheney as Vice-president, failed to do that on Jan. 8th. Now perhaps Cheney is beginning to realize the importance of what he omitted.
