"That ancient grudge of Imperial power is finally beginning to play its hold cards: The coming week will not be pretty. Now we know where Cheney's secret and secure locations really are, and where they have been for far too long. He is supposed to be a Vice-President of this country ? isn't he! Yet we can clearly see what his shuttle diplomacy to Saudi Arabia has always been about. It is of course impossible to know, with certainty, very much about this because everything is SECRET ? yet it appears that the Vice-President of the United States has been betting against the American dollar." Seems to be a sure bet, one being made by everyone that is paying attention.
