WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Supreme Court refused on Thursday to require Vice President Dick Cheney to disclose records of a 2001 task force he headed that critics say secretly formed energy policy favorable to the industry.





In a temporary victory for the government, the justices set aside a ruling that Cheney, a former energy industry executive, must comply with a federal judge's order to produce the internal White House documents or give a detailed explanation of what was withheld and why.

Democrats accuse the administration of excessive secrecy surrounding the task force that President Bush put Cheney in charge of. They said the force, which endorsed more oil and gas drilling and a revived nuclear energy program, favored the industry over environmental concerns.

Let's give this guy ANOTHER pass...

otep,

Cheney secretly formed energy policy favorable to the industry, and his company. He used the second highest office in the land for his personal gain. He walked all over us, and now he's getting away with it.
