Cheney the environmentalist?

Okay, he’s nothing of the sort. In their final installment in the Cheney series, the Washington Post tackles his environmental record. It’s not pretty.

We again see the same methodology: operating in secret, reaching down to the lowest levels of the bureaucracy to effect the policies he wants.

In this case, though, it’s hard to discern a guiding principle at work other than “in any conflict between the environment and business, business is always right.”

Actually, make that “businesses I care about.” Considering he helped destroy commercial fisheries in the Pacific Northwest in order to save a few politically-connected farmers farther upstream.

    Of course Cheney cares about the environment. He wants to be remembered as someone who never met one he couldn’t destroy.
