Personally, I think this is fantastic news. I was incredibly disappointed to see Obama back up the "Don't release this" argument. He was making the opposite argument before he became president. Oh, are you worried about something happening in your administration?
The decision is correct, and I revel in the thought of Cheney and his family being completely pissed off by this. I cannot wait to read the transcript!
FYI--the federal judge was appointed by Reagan.
WASHINGTON - A federal judge ruled Thursday that the FBI must publicly reveal much of its interview with former Vice President Dick Cheney during the investigation into who leaked the identity of a CIA operative.
The FBI interviewed Cheney in June 2004 as it was investigating the leak of Valerie Plame's identity after her husband publicly criticized the Bush administration. Both the Bush and Obama administrations said they wanted to keep the interview confidential because future presidents and vice presidents may not cooperate with criminal investigations if they know what they say could become public.
