Cheney: 'The Administration's Enemy Within'
We'll take any opportunity to use this TIME photo again, which shows Cheney and his lesser henchmen at the funeral of Don Corleone.
Today's excuse: TIME's got a big cover feature blockbuster story about how Cheney runs the White House and is an out-of-control hater who kills by night. That was true in 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005 and 2006, too -- but the news hook is the Libby verdict. TIME calls it "the Cheney verdict," which is a cute sort of fantasy. Anyway, guess what? Cheney's Plame/Wilson/Uranium/Iraq War scheme was an "operation inside the White House that has done more harm than good." You don't say!
