A PETITION FOR A REDRESS OF GRIEVANCES RELATED TO THE CONDUCT OF VICE PRESIDENT CHENEY IN REGARD TO THE UNCONSTITUTIONAL CONDUCT OF ROGUE INTELLIGENCE OPERATIONS AND SECRET COMMUNICATIONS WITH FOREIGN GOVERNMENTS

TO THE CONGRESS OF THE UNITED STATES in care of Congressman Henry Waxman, Chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.

Copies to Our Representatives and Senators.

WHEREAS, Vice President Richard B. Cheney claims the un-Constitutional power to conduct secret communications with foreign governments, corporate interests, and other entities regarding the business of the People of United States of America;

AND WHEREAS, he has refused to disclose any information about such communications to The Information Security Oversight Office, the a unit of the National Archives that supervises the handling of classified information on behalf of the People of the United States;

AND WHEREAS, he has sought to shut down The Information Security Oversight Office;

AND WHEREAS, he claims to operate independently from the Executive Branch of our government;

AND WHEREAS he has disgraced the People of the United States and betrayed the highest American values and centuries of Anglo-American legal tradition by openly advocating the use of cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment as a legal instrument of U.S. policy;

THEREFORE, we petition the Congress to fully investigate the contents of the records the Vice President is holding secret and to determine whether they reveal illegal and un-Constitutional actions by the Vice President and his circle;

AND FURTHER, we demand the impeachment of Vice President Richard B. Cheney should evidence of high crimes and misdemeanors arise from an investigation of his secret records.

I am a Citizen of the United States of America joining other citizens in signing this petition.
