Get ready. Cheney’s memoir, In My Time, hits the bookstores on August 30. It’s up to us to provide some context, lest readers forget that Cheney tried to justify attacking Iraq by using intelligence that the Chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee later labeled "unsubstantiated, contradicted, or even non-existent." On August 26, 2002, Cheney led off this fraudulent propaganda campaign, telling an audience in Nashville: “Simply stated, there is no doubt that Saddam Hussein now has weapons of mass destruction. There is no doubt he is amassing them to use against our friends, against our allies, and against us."
This was no mistake. It was a bald-faced lie that has brought death and destruction. On behalf of the 4,500 U.S. troops killed in Iraq, the many times as many wounded, the hundreds of thousands of Iraqis killed, and the five million displaced from their homes, we need to ensure that those who pick up Cheney’s book have a fair shot at the truth.

Inserting bookmarkers and moving books is legal, it’s fun and it will make a difference in how people view Cheney’s book and his whitewashing of history. Or better yet, show up at one of Cheney’s book events and call for a citizen's arrest, which in the past have caused Rice, Bush and Rove to cancel or rearrange their appearances.
Cheney pushed us into war, but Barack Obama has the same war addiction. Watch CODEPINK's clever "intervention" outside the White House.
