Harry Whittington v. Dick Cheney HA-20-2-06


By Anthony J. Sanders


1. Cheney v. USDC No. 03-475 of June 24, 2004 is supported in H Res 636 PDF and H Res 637 PDF that would censure,

respectively, Bush and Cheney for failing to respond to requests for information concerning allegations that they and others

in the Administration misled Congress and the American people regarding the decision to go to war in Iraq, misstated and

manipulated intelligence information regarding the justification for the war, countenanced torture and cruel, inhuman, and

degrading treatment of persons in Iraq, and permitted inappropriate retaliation against critics of the Administration, for failing

to adequately account for certain misstatements they made regarding the war, and – in the case of President Bush – for failing

to comply with Executive Order 12958.  


Art. 2(4) US Constitution states, the President, Vice President and all civil officers of the United States, shall be removed from

office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors. 


Under Art. 3(3) Treason against the United States, shall consists only in levying war against them. Or in adhering to their enemies,

giving them Aid and comfort.  No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt

Act, or on Confession in an open Court.  The Congress shall have Power to declare the Punishment of Treason. 


Under Art. XXV (2) Whenever there is a vacancy in the office of the Vice President, the President shall nominate a Vice president who

shall take office upon confirmation by a majority vote of both Houses of Congress.


2. On 11 February 2006 Vice President Dick Cheney sprayed Harry Whittington, a Texan lawyer and Bush Cheney campaign supporter,

with birdshot on his face and upper torso in what has been called a hunting accident. Whittington suffered a mild heart attack in Tuesday,

doctors said, after a piece of birdshot in his body migrated to a heart muscle.  He was released from Corpus Christi Hospital on Friday 17

February.  The vice president remained publicly silent about the shooting for four days until a television interview Wednesday when he

accepted blame, saying it was "one of the worst days of my life."  Kenedy County Sheriff Ramon Salinas said that authorities have deemed

the shooting a "mere hunting accident" and that no charges will be filed.  A state game warden issued a warning to Cheney for hunting without

a required stamp on his license, and the vice president's office later submitted the $7 payment for the stamp.  


3. In Thursday's report, Chief Deputy Gilberto San Miguel Jr. said that he went to the Armstrong Ranch about 8 a.m. Sunday -- more than

14 hours after the shooting, which took place around 5:30 p.m. Saturday.  Police knew of the shooting Saturday, but authorities didn't

interview anyone until the following day when San Miguel talked to Cheney and other witnesses at the ranch. Ranch owner Katharine

Armstrong was the first to notify the media about the shooting, calling a reporter at the Corpus Christi Caller-Times newspaper on Sunday.


4. The national media didn't learn of the accident until a story appeared on the paper's Web site Sunday afternoon.  As a State Funeral Director

appointed by then Governor George Bush Mr. Whittington is an important witness to the wrongful death case against the State of Texas that

is the most prolific abuser of the death penalty in the USA.  Mr Cheney’s testament to the facts goes as follows, He was dressed in orange, he

was dressed properly, but he was also -- there was a little bit of a gully there, so he was down a little ways before land level, although I could

see the upper part of his body when -- I didn't see it at the time I shot, until after I'd fired. And the sun was directly behind him -- that affected

the vision, too, I'm sure.  But the image of him falling is something I'll never be able to get out of my mind. I fired, and there's Harry falling. And

it was, I'd have to say, one of the worst days of my life, at that moment. 


5. We've had experiences where the president has been shot; we've never had a situation where the vice president shot somebody since Aaron Burr. 

This incident seriously brings into question Mr. Cheney’s ability to control his use of force in interpersonal relations that he has publicly

demonstrated to lack on numerous occasions with weapons of mass destruction and the international peace. 


6. The case against Richard Cheney began in Operation Just Cause of December 20,1989 that overthrew Panamanian dictator Manuel Noriega and

was terminated by President George Bush Sr. in Executive Order 12710 Termination of emergency with respect to Panama Signed: April 5, 1990.

The arrest and detention without a criminal conviction was a grave breech of Art. XI (2,4) Panama Canal Treaty of 1977 that specifically grants

all jurisdiction of criminal justice functions regarding Panamanians to Panama.  Review of executive orders indicate military intelligence and

investments by Secretary Cheney and President Bush Sr. were in flagrant violation of Military and Paramilitary Activities in and against

Nicaragua (Nicaragua v. United States of America) IC.J. No. 70 1986.  Congress responded by calling for the immediate retirement of those

in material breech of the Panama Canal Treaty of 1977.


7. After several days as a fugitive former President of Panama Manuel Antonio Noriega ID 38699-079 was apprehended and then wrongfully

convicted of drug charges in a federal court and is sentenced to be released in 9/09/2007.  US Department of Justice Bureau of Prisons addresses

him at Miami FCI, 15801 S.W. 137th Ave., Miami, FL 33177 (305)259-2100.  Noriega is innocent and must be acquitted under Rule 29(a) of the

Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure by overturning his conviction for an insufficiency of evidence. 


8. As a Panamanian citizen who was residing in Panama where the alleged crime occurred Manuel Noriega has diplomatic immunity under Art.

XI (2,4) Panama Canal Treaty of 1977 and must be released to his family and granted a generous retirement annuity under 42USC(7)§402 in

apology for the many years of false imprisonment without any question as to the veracity of his conviction.


9. The prolonged detention of former President Noriega is in contravention to Art. 118 of the Third Geneva Convention.  Manuel Noriega must

be released and repatriated.  Manuel Noriega is entitled to an annuity from the US Government under 5USC(G)(83) III§8336(h-1) the same law

that first required the immediate retirement of Vice President Dick Cheney.  To ensure that the federal government takes responsibility for liberating

Noriega from prison, sentencing of Dick Cheney begins at the same number of days in jail as Noriega serves that only Noriega can forgive in exchange

for his speedy and early release. 


10. This liberation and impeachment is imperative whereas Article 2(4) of the UN Charter is considered the jus cogens, universal norm of international

law, and is commonly known as the principle of non-use of force.  It states, “all Members shall refrain in their international relations from the threat or

use of force against the territorial integrity or political independence of any State, or in any other manner inconsistent with the Purposes of the United


11. In protest of the invasion of Kuwait by Iraq Commander in Chief George H. Bush signed Executive Order 12722  Blocking Iraqi government 
property and prohibiting transactions with Iraq on August 2, 1990.  It was not until January 21, 1991, after refusing to sign Iraqs peace treaty, 
President George Bush Sr. Signed Executive Order 12744 Designation of Arabian Peninsula areas, airspace, and adjacent waters as a combat zone 
authorizing what became known as the First Gulf War. It was generally considered just to evict Iraqi colonial invaders from Kuwait. 
12. The use of bombs and armored assault on Baghdad in the First Gulf War killed 25,000 Iraqis for less than 1,000 Americans casualties and is the
largest bombing mission in world history, larger in tons of TNT than even than the assault on Germany by the Allies at the end of World War II.  
Peace was achieved between the United States and Iraq on July 25, 1991 in Executive Order 12771 Revoking earlier orders with respect to Kuwait. 

13. Aggressive US forces swiftly retired after the cease fire of July 25, 1991 when President George Bush Sr. signed Executive Order 12771

Revoking earlier orders with respect to Kuwait and only a few entrenched commandoes retreated to US military bases in Kuwait and Saudi Arabia

where US and British air forces and Marines enforced a trade embargo against Iraq and made regular bombing incursions into the Iraqi no fly zone

killing at least 100 people every year in contravention to 51 of the First Additional Protocol to the Geneva Convention of 1977.


14. To fine misbehavior and forfeit US military bases and property on the Arabian peninsula George Bush Sr. gutted the Veteran’s Trust Fund

Statute in Chapter 2 Soldier’s and Airmen’s Home and transferred the Fund to new Title 24 Hospitals & Asylums Chapter 10 Armed Forces

Retirement Home Trust Fund in 24USC(10)§419(4). Although explicitly ordered to forfeit the military property in violation of the Geneva

Convention on the Arabian Peninsula Secretary of Defense Dick Cheney disobeyed and retained military bases covertly operating in the Arabian

Peninsula authorized to Use Force in flagrant violation of the International Covenant of Civil and Political Rights 2200A (XXI) (1966). 


15. Operation Desert Storm killed an estimated 25,000 Iraqis in the First Gulf War.  It was over quickly and is considered a just war. After Dick

Cheney immediately retired from the federal government under 5USC(G)(83)III§8336(h-1) in January of 1993 when President Clinton took office,

Dick Cheney came to be elected the new private CEO of Halliburton Oil Well Co. v. Reilly US 373 U.S. 64 (1963) where he is considered to have

lived an innocent life, with nothing but an innocent Panamanian President in prison and a homicidal military base near Mecca to remind him of his

past indiscretions with international warfare while he dealt in the international trade of unexploded ordinance privately, with dubious respect for

the laws of the state of operation.


16. The Clinton White House drafted the Iraq Liberation Act PL 105-338 of October 31, 1998 that indicted Saddam Hussein for war crimes and

demanded his impeachment but diplomacy failed as the result of the US failing to recognize the damages the low intensity aerial bombardment

and embargo regarding the Iraqi no fly zone.


17. Richard B. Cheney did not overtly commit any acts of war again until after he was selected to be his old President’s son George Bush Jr.’s

running mate by the Republican Party in the 2000 elections.  The choice of running mates reflected bad judgment or criminal intent on the part

of the Republican Party to empower the former Secretary of Defense of a decidedly military Bush dictatorship to a second term- with control

of the legislature.  Newly elected in January 2001, the president and vice president immediately made covert attempts to declare war on Iraq

however were rebuffed by Congress. 


18. The Bush Jr. White House immediately increased the Department of Defense budget over the $300 billion maximum tolerable defense budget

that has soared over $500 billion in 2005. It was not until the suicide attacks upon the World Trade Center and Pentagon on September, 11 2001

that Congress actually consented to declare war.  It is interesting to note that the suicide attacks occurred on the 61st birthday of the newly

appointed Solicitor General Theodore B. Olson, and killed his wife Barbara Olson who was on Flight 77 that demolished a wall of the Pentagon. 

After several chemical weapons attacks utilizing anthrax and riacin, deadly toxins, in packages sent through the US mail to prominent legislators,

killing several postal workers, the President of the Senate Richard B. Cheney convinced Congress and Senate to ratify two acts of war. 


19 The Acts War were drafted by the Vice President ratified by Confess and signed by the Commander in Chief George W. Bush in his first term

of office are; 


a. Operation Afghanistan Freedom PL-107-40 Authorizing the United States Armed Forces for Use in Afghanistan of September 23, 2001 is

considered a just war by the Supreme Court in Hamdi v. Rumsfield No. 03-6696.(2004) although this may merely be a reference to its commission

by a relative of an employee of the Justice Department.  Bombings and extermination missions with conventional weapons were very genocidal.

The President did not make peace until the signature of Executive Order 13268 Termination of Emergency With Respect to the Taliban and

Amendment of Executive Order 13224 of September 23, 2001 on July 2, 2002.  It can be estimated that the US has caused 50,000 fatalities in

Afghanistan through the initial air campaign, tribal extermination missions and continuing aggressions of the US Armed Forces acting both

independently and in cooperation with Pakistan and the Afghan Loya Jirga against armed rural people whom the government is too poor to

incorporate into the national defense administration although armed conflict has largely ceased in Afghanistan.


b. Operation Iraq Freedom HJRes.114 to Authorize the Use of Force Against Iraq October 16, 2002 was successful in overthrowing Saddam

Hussein and the Ba’ath party however it was not authorized by the UN Security Council and expired by treaty on June 30, 2004 when the Iraqi

Trust Fund was transferred to the Transitional Government. Hamdi v. Rumsfield No. 03-6696.(2004) does not consider the war on Iraq to be a

“just war”.  George W. Bush did not make peace with Iraq until the signature of Executive Order 13350 Termination of Emergency Declared in

Executive Order 12722 With Respect to Iraq and Modification of Executive Order 13290, Executive Order 13303, and Executive Order 13315 on

July 29, 2004.  It is estimated that the initial bombings, armored assault and subsequent occupational insurgency conflict have led to the death of

over 100,000 Iraqis.  Official estimates of US caused casualties hover around 40,000.


20. The US Supreme Court in Cheney v. USDC No. 03-475 of June 24, 2004 established procedure for the impeachment of the Vice President 
under Art. 2 Section 4 of the US Constitution.  Character evidence warranting the impeachment of the Vice President from office in accordance 
with Rule 608 and 609 of the Federal Rules of Evidence was however omitted.  On the campaign trail the incitement of the crime of genocide 
18USC(50A)§1091 was used as campaign issue. 
21. The Vice President was witnessed publicly ordering the bombings of Iraqi towns on two occasions (1) at a military base in California where 
they re-indicted Cleric Al Sadr after he had been acquitted and (2) on the second day of the Republican National Convention. Immediately after
the US elections the troops in Iraq convinced Prime Minister Allawi to declare a state of emergency and attack the town of Fallujah seemingly 
in protest of the new peace treaty.   Cases regarding misconduct and scandal against his assistants Karl Rove and Libby and the crimes enumerated 
in this section however provide sufficient grounds for the succession of the Vice President under the XXV Amendment to the US Constitution. 


22. Sentencing of the Vice President Cheney bears heavily on the false imprisonment of Manuel Noriega that has lasted 15 years, so far, and

resulted in calls for immediate retirement under 5USC(G)(83)III§8336(h-1) when it first occurred.   Cheney claims superior responsibility for

the loss of an estimated 175,000 lives at a cost of less than 3,000 US soldiers and 3,000 civilian casualties in the suicide attacks on the World

Trade Center and Pentagon that he caused as the result of his treason if he did not actually participate in its planning.  He must be removed from

all offices of trust within the Federal government, particularly with the Intelligence Service and Military because his conduct is unbecoming of an

officer and is so violent as to present a threat to the peace and security of the United States and world in general.  Having no socially redeeming

merit it seems appropriate to sentence Mr. Cheney to every day Noriega serves plus a day for every US soldier who died in post 9-11 conflict.


23. To help Commander in Chief George W. Bush keep the peace and lead a successful second term in office Vice President Richard B. Cheney

and others convicted of war crimes must swear an oath upon a copy of the Holy Bible for President George W. Bush and the US Supreme Court,

where they promise,


“I shall not incite genocide, bomb, slave, kill, oppress, deceive, or usurp offices of trust within the federal government so help me God.” 


24. Richard B. Cheney should be removed from office on President’s Day without any corrupt settlement such as the $3 million annually offered

by Halliburton that is due the Iraqi people and kept under surveillance by a reputable law firm to ensure that he ceases to interfere in military,

political and judicial affairs or cause any more harm to any other human beings.  Should Congress fail to impeach the Vice President on President’s

Day case shall brought forth in March for the removal of the entire Bush Administration. 


25. As the most homicidal official in the world Dick Cheney cannot afford to shoot his friends, nor it should be added citizens, women and children

such as Ms. Hawk and her two infant children who were reported to have been shot to death in their home in Ohio, very likely by the genocidal

Republican Judiciary who they permit to spy in the next county over the trial of a mutual rapist, at nearly the same time that Mr. Whittington

was wounded quail hunting, before the case was reported to the press.  Medical reports should be carefully examined and a second opinion by

a neutral doctor rendered to ensure this is not merely a fraudulent punishment for the more atrocious crime or the result of a dispute there-over

or relating to Afghanistan & Iraq v. USA HA-20-12-05 before restitution is made to Mr. Whittington and Mr. Noriega. 


26. It will be a great day for the American people when Manuel Noriega is released, this year, on 9-9-07.  We hope that the media will try the war

criminals who overthrew him.  The prisoner of war was falsely held for 17 years as a drug offender and is entitled to restitution and repatriation.
