A Scary Cheney, A Scary Guest

Reported by Melanie - June 18, 2004 -

Your World with Neil Cavuto was entirely devoted today to coverage of the murder of Paul Johnson, Jr.

Cpt. Chuck Nash (US Navy Ret.) was one of the early guests. Mr. Nash appeared just after a short, live, two minute clip of a speech being made in Colorado by VP Cheney. In the portion of speech shown, Cheney said the US would "hunt down" and "destroy" those who did killed Paul Johnson, Jr.

In introducing Mr. Nash, Cavuto said something like "what do you think of all this?" to which Mr. Nash replied, "I like the sound of that more than I do 'bring them to justice.'"

COMMENT: Isn't this frightening? I think Cheney's overstepping the bounds here. We are a nation of laws. We are a planet whose countries are increasingly bound by laws and treaties and agreements. Once we start ignoring laws, we can't expect anyone else to follow them either. It's very, very dangerous to start down that road. We mustn't become that which we abhore.
