A look back can't hurt, can't it ... oops. I will note that the truth does have a tendency to hurt at times vis-รก-vis in our system of government and democracy, so, sorry about that, Mr. Cheney. Continue please:

On September 16, 2001, then Vice President Richard Bruce Cheney, appeared on NBC's Meet the Press (apparently his favorite network next to FOX that is) where he talked about what it will take to deal with the terrorism threat, saying in part:

“…we have to work the dark side, if you will. Spend time in the shadows of the intelligence world. A lot of what needs to be done here will have to be done quietly, without any discussion.”

At this site (PBS’s FRONTLINE) intelligence officials and others offer their thoughts on Mr. Cheney's use of that phrase “Dark Side” as well as the impact of 9/11 on the vice president and everything since.

Enjoy it. Stop back by later.
