What Cheney really meant in his statement the other day.

“The ultimate threat to the country” is “a 9/11-type event where we are armed with something much more dangerous than an airline ticket, a box cutter, the support of NORAD, the Pentagon and al CIAda - a nuclear weapon or a biological agent of some kind (we have a number of options on the table) that is deployed in the middle of an American city.

“That’s the one that would involve the deaths of perhaps hundreds of thousands of people, the one that the Pentagon and intelligence agencies would have to take much time planning and keep under wraps, and the ones you have to spend a hell of a lot of time guarding against,” he said.

“I think there’s a high probability that we’ll stage such a strike. Whether or not we’ll need to pull it off depends whether or not Obama - under our direction - can keep the American people under continual surveillance and control through increasingly tough legislation, suspension of the Bill of Rights (whatever those were) and all liberties and by keeping these policies in place we might just get to suspending all government-sponsored, mass-casualty false flag ops like 9/11 in the future. But then we’ll probably stage them anyway."
