An odd report out of South Texas where a Willacy County grand jury has apparently indicted
Vice President Dick Cheney and former Attorney General Alberto Gonzales. But this doesn't look like the comeuppance so many have hoped for. I can't piece together from the news reports
what the precise allegations are but they don't seem to implicate Cheney or Gonzales directly in any wrongdoing. In fact a little googling shows the district attorney down there has been embroiled in one controversy after another, including getting arrested
himself at one point, though he was later cleared
. So this one may be entertaining but not for the reasons the headlines might suggest.Late Update
: Will Bunch has some background
on the federal detention center in Willacy County that is ostensibly at the heart of this indictment.
