Fact of the Week
Fact of the Week
Through much of October, Vice President Dick Cheney was out of public view,
supposedly staying at an unspecified secure location. On 29 October, when
Attorney General Ashcroft called for all Americans to be on highest alert,
that secure location was a duck blind at a hunting club in upstate New York.
Yes, while American forces were shooting in Afghanistan, Cheney was
shooting ducks and pheasants in Dutchess County.
