In a story you read about here a couple of months ago, it looks like the defense for Pfc. Lynndie England still wants to put Dick Cheney on the stand in England's trial stemming from abuses at Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq:
...Cheney was among a long wish-list of potential witnesses, which included many of the generals involved with the prison. Defense lawyers did not explain in open court Saturday why they want Cheney's testimony.
The hearing officer, Col. Denise Arn, said she will study the request but gave no indication when or how she might rule.
The hearing was adjourned, and Arn set no date for when it might resume. England's lawyers speculated that the hearing might reconvene in a month...
Again, it's doubtful this will happen. Although Colonel Arn might want to polish up her resume if she compels Cheney to testify.
I hear Wal-Mart may be hiring. Oh, wait...
