During the panel discussion on This Week, Liz Cheney contradicted the reporting in The Daily Beast and from Jane Mayer and claimed her father would not have substituted his judgment for that of the CIA. She attacks Lawrence Wilkerson personally as having "fantasies" about what the Vice President has done since he left office.

As Think Progress notes her statement is also directly contradicted by the reporting from PBS's Frontline special The Dark Side. Perhaps Ms. Cheney thinks the producers there were just having "fantasies" about her father as well.

Speaking of fantasies, or maybe better put..nightmares..for anyone that wants a chuckle check out Driftglass' take on Cheney's appearance on This Week. The Photoshop work to go with this quote is priceless.

Even though the official Drag Queen Name Generator of the 2012 Olympics gives his proper nom de hey-now as "Sofonda Cox", today when Dick Cheney strapped a funny blond wig to his head and went abroad among the living on “This Week” , he used the lady-with-man-junk name of "Liz".

Either way, he fooled no one.

I'd like to know why Liz Cheney thinks anyone should believe she's privy to any of the information she claims to have knowledge of other than receiving talking points from her father.
