4 part series on Cheney in Washington Post

Part I “A Different Understanding with the President” by Barton Gellman and Jo Becker.

Some fascinating stuff in this first of four articles.

Cheney flunked out of Yale.
His secret order signed by the President stripping foreign terrorist suspects of any access to court and allowing them to be held indefinitely provoked Colin Powell to ask, “What the hell just happened?”
There is a link to the notes taken by  James Baker in 1980 when Cheney gave him a bunch of advice on how to be a good White House Chief of Staff. Advice that Cheney has routinely ignored as “surrogate chief of staff” (This is specifically how Dan Quayle describes him in this article.)

Still reading this, but thought I would put up a link here.
