Cheney and Gonzales Indicted

From Fox News:

A South Texas grand jury has indicted Vice President Dick Cheney and former Attorney General Alberto Gonzales on charges related to the alleged abuse of prisoners in Willacy County’s federal detention centers.

The indictment criticizes Cheney’s investment in the Vanguard Group, which holds interests in the private prison companies running the federal detention centers. It accuses Cheney of a conflict of interest and “at least misdemeanor assaults” on detainees by working through the prison companies.

Cheney’s office said it has not received an indictment yet.

US Navy Steams in Georgian Port

European press is reporting that the USS Mount Whitney, the 6th Fleet’s flagship, has docked at the Black Sea port of Pilo, Georgia - a move in the chess match of international relations considered to be a confrontational act. The port is actually garrisoned with a small number of Russian Soldiers, who while pose no potential threat to the US Mount Whitney, do increase the hostilities of the situation; this on the heels of Dick Cheney’s visit to Georgia, widely seen as a “spoking of the fires” trip. On top of this, there are allegations by the Russian Government that the US is shipping weapons into Georgia through Black Sea ports-

Russia’s leaders have accused previous US warships that docked at the port of Batumi, to the south, of delivering weapons to re-arm the smashed Georgian military — charges that Washington denied. - UK Times

Giuliani to Keynote Convention

The RNC has announced the lineup for their Convention and with the exception of Sarah Palin, there is not a single Conservative on the list. Party conventions are typically supposed to be a show of party-wide unity, with every faction within the party putting aside their differences to defeat their common enemies; with McCain shunning all true conservatives in order to embrace the neoconservatives, 2008 is not such a year.

If McCain hopes to earn the votes of traditional Republicans on November 4th then he should at least give them some false rhetoric and maybe a handful of convention speakers - but it appears he is not even vaguely interested in such. Below is the Republican National Convention schedule and speaker lineup.
