"There is an executive order that specifies who has classification authority and obviously focuses first and foremost on the president but also includes the vice president," Mr. Cheney said in an interview on Fox News.
He said he had participated in decisions to declassify information, but he declined to say whether he had ever declassified information on his own.
What is not mentioned here is that these declassifications occurred so that the administration could selectively leak information in a politically beneficial manner.
I also wonder what power can the President not grant via an executive order? The power to arrest and imprison a US citizen without court oversight, done. The power to spy on US citizen's without warrants, done. The power to ignore the law at will?
King George and Prince Dick have created the ultimate ruling system, for the ruler. They get to make up and change the rules as they go along, and no one has the will, authority or power to stop them. They are not just above the law, they claim to be the law.
Nice work if you can get it.
