Well, That Sure Makes Me Feel Better

From the New York Yimes, in 2002:

"Vice President Dick Cheney flew to Yemen today amid extraordinary security to press for joint efforts against remnants of the organization called Al Qaeda.

A senior American official said Mr. Cheney had used his meeting with Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh primarily to discuss assistance to prevent Yemen from becoming a haven for terrorists" 

Well, I'm sure glad that worked out so well.  Dick Cheney, the king of fighting terrorism, saving the country once again.

Mr. Bastard,

Thanks for your comment, which led me to take a look at your blogs. I really like your writing and your attitude, and I will be keeping an eye on them.

As for where Dick Cheney was after the Cole bombing, he was still the head of Halliburton, so I presume he was absorbed with filling a contract to supply the bombers with RIBs or something.
