Vice President Dick Cheney has asserted his office is not a part of the executive branch of the U.S. government, and therefore not bound by a presidential order governing the protection of classified information by government agencies, according to a new letter from Rep. Henry Waxman, D-Calif., to Cheney.

Interesting. Although I wouldn’t have thought that they were already prepared admit publicly that the White House is now a part of the North American Union, not the Constitutional government.
