The Bush administration

Cheney should write his memoirs

Former Vice President Dick Cheney is no longer in a position to run roughshod over our Constitution [“Cheney: Obama policies have made U.S. less safe,” News, March 16].

Cheney says he cannot tell us what terrorist attacks were stopped by the extra-constitutional programs he pushed, because to tell would violate classification secrecies. We must continue to trust him, he says.

In the waning days of the Bush-Cheney administration, his influence dwindled. He was unable to persuade President Bush to pardon Scooter Libby and he can’t let that go.

It is time for Cheney to realize his irrelevance and go home and write his memoirs.

— Larry Donohue, Seattle
