How to Become a Bounty Hunter



Dick Cheney Diplomatically Criticizes U.S. Atty. Patrick Fitzgerald.

Former V.P. Dick Cheney isn’t always known for his diplomacy or finesse.

But Monday he was more careful than usual when it came to voicing his opinion. Usually he’s not so circumspect.

But he was when asked about Chicago U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald who prosecuted Cheney’s  Scooter Libby for perjury and obstruction of justice in the leak investigation into the outing of CIA operative Valerie Plame.

Radio station WBEZ reports that Cheney, who appeared Monday at the Union League Club of Chicago as part of his book tour, paused for nine second when asked about Fitzgerald.

“I obviously had some fundamental disagreements with him at one point in the past,” Cheney said.

Cheney called Libby a “very good man” who “did not deserve what happened to him.”

Libby was convicted on four of five felony counts. In 2007, he was sentenced to 30 months in prison, but President Bush subsequently commuted his 30-month sentence.
