Cheney Cancels Meeting in Canada With Spectre To Avoid Attempts To Arrest Him

Former U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney and his daughter Elizabeth have canceled speeches in Toronto, Canada out of concern that they would be set upon by people who oppose torture and want Cheney arrested. While Americans appear reconciled with the torture program, citizens in other countries still demand that Bush officials be arrested according to international law.

Last September, Cheney was surrounded in the Vancouver Club and kept there for seven hours before it was deemed safe for him to leave.

The aspect of this story that I love the most is the name of the group that was arranging Cheney’s visit on April 24th: Spectre. Yes, Spectre of Ernst Stavro Blofeld fame. Number 1 in this case was Ryan Ruppert of Spectre Live Corp. who explained that “[a]fter speaking with their security advisers, they changed their mind on coming to the event [and] decided it was better for their personal safety they stay out of Canada.” It is not clear if Blofeld’s cat will make the trip instead.

Cheney could claim a curious victory in frustrating efforts to arrest him. In the words of Blofeld: “Such a pity. All that time and energy wasted, simply to provide you with one mock, heroic moment.” [Look into camera, pet cat, exit stage right]

  1. Dredd,

    He probably did h lp build infrastructure…… Wmd…. Mic…..some here mostly there…..

  2. Obama has been more treacherous in my opinion than bush or cheney at this point. He campaigned to undo the evil he is now signing into law…… Talk about a coward….. All’s he wants is a second term….

  3. Cheney flunked out of Yale twice. In his early 20’s he had 2 DWI’s. During the Vietnam War, he applied for and received five draft deferments.Cheney reportedly said, “I had other priorities in the ’60s than military service.”

    As part of the Administration that sent thousands of young men and women into battle and authorized the torture of an unknown number of human beings, Cheney, ever still the coward, cowers at home fearing for his own safety if he strays outside the USA borders.

    May Justice be done.

  4. Frankly,

    So true, so true….. They want justice for everyone else but themselves…..

  5. AY – given that the Obama administration is now complicit in the war crimes it is very doubtful that they will hand Cheney and his crew of miscreant over to actual justice. It will take at least a couple of administration from now – hence my desire for a very long twilight for these murderers & torturers.

  6. There is a lawful demand here on this land for the arrest of Bush and Cheney also. CV567 2004 is the case, and and it is concluded with no way out for any of them (the entire cabinet, or what I call, closet). It also includes Barry and his crew.

  7. “Last September, Cheney was surrounded in the Vancouver Club and kept there for seven hours before it was deemed safe for him to leave.”

    Must of been a run on toilet paper that day.

  8. Well, it’s claimed that the US arranged lil ole joseph mengeles escape….

    Dredd…. Woody is a good man….

    Wouldn’t it be nice if the US did the right thing and turned over cheney to the international courts….. I wonder if he’d have as much courage as the butcher of Bagdad…..

  9. WHO says Americans are reconciled with this?

    I still want them prosecuted, but I doubt that a President that thinks he is entitled to kill American citizens without due process, is going to do anything about it!!

  10. And this is why I want those bastards to live to ripe old age. They know that they are only safe here in the US and only as long as we pretend they are not war criminals. They should be prepared to flee when justice comes to their door. It should eat at them every day, unloved, unwanted and certainly not respected. (Have you noticed not one GOP candidate has mentioned the name George Bush so far?).

  11. Catullus,

    If you keep talking that way, somebody is going to tell Dad you gave away all of his beer money, eh?

  12. Those silly Canadians; lookng backward when they should be looking forward,eh?

  13. Doh! I had just bookmarked this for this weekend, but I must confess I wouldn’t have thought to add the flourish of Donald Pleasance as Ernst Stavro Blofeld let alone his cat. Well played.

    Yeah. That whole threat of being mobbed by people who want you on trial for war crimes can really put a crimp a guy’s book tour. I’m so . . . overjoyed. I hope he gets this or a warmer reception (as in actually arrested) everywhere he tries to go for the rest of his traitorous little life.

  14. So, there is some sanity outside the DC asylum where the psychopaths like Cheney like to congregate. Saudi-Gate ought to be found to violate US law, not just international law, so either Cheney torture goes down or the lights are going down.

    I always wondered why N. Korean officials like to compete with people like Cheney for the coveted most disliked person in the world. It seems to be coveted even more than Olbermann’s Worst Person In The World title.
