We know that the new director of the CIA, Leon Panetta, was kept in the dark for months about the secret counterterrorism program.
But Scotland’s leading newspaper – the Scotsman – has a stunning new revelation:

Cheney staged a coup and took control of the reigns of government, cutting not only Congress – but also the appointed leaders of the CIA – out of the loop.
