A Review by the government of the warrantless wiretapping declares it of little value in the so-called 'war on terror', but it must have had some value for the Cheney regime. While it held no value in fighting "terrorism", it did help them gather dirt on political opponents. It also helped them plug leaks with regards to the governments involvement in 9/11.
It is perhaps the information gathered by the Cheney regime that keeps him from jail for concealing a secret "counterterrorism" program from congress, probably the executive assassination ring. But, instead of going to jail, what does Cheney get for his criminal actions? Six more months of secret service protection. Security authorities in Dallas, Texas decided to cut back on former President George W. Bush's protection amid increasing costs, and he was the fucking president. So once again, the Cheney regime has gotten a pass from the Obama administration. Makes me wonder what kind of information they have on Barack?
