Bush pulls a Cheney

This is just unbelievable. Except that I'll believe anything of Bush. The article is called "Bush Claims Oversight Exemption Too" and it's published by the Los Angeles Times. Here's an excerpt:

WASHINGTON - The White House said Friday that, like Vice President Dick Cheney’s office, President Bush’s office is not allowing an independent federal watchdog to oversee its handling of classified national security information.

An executive order that Bush issued in March 2003 - amending an existing order - requires all government agencies that are part of the executive branch to submit to oversight. Although it doesn’t specifically say so, Bush’s order was not meant to apply to the vice president’s office or the president’s office, a White House spokesman said.

Now, who's gullible enough to believe that? Sickening.
