House Panel Will Hold Hearing Into Cheney's Role in Oregon Salmon Die-Off

Washington - The chairman of the House Natural Resources Committee said today his panel will hold a hearing into the role Vice President Dick Cheney may have played in the 2002 die-off of about 70,000 salmon near the California-Oregon border.

Rep. Nick Rahall, D-W.Va., said the Democratic-led committee has been examining what he called the Bush administration's "penchant to favor politics over science in the implementation of the Endangered Species Act."

In light of allegations made about Cheney's role in developing a 10-year water plan for the Klamath River that courts later called arbitrary and in violation of the Endangered Species Act, a hearing is worthwhile, Rahall said. He and other Democrats charged that Cheney's action resulted in the largest adult salmon kill in the history of the West.

"It certainly appears this administration will stop at nothing to achieve political gain from natural resources disasters," Rahall said. "Ultimately, it will be hardworking Americans and their healthy environment that will lose if we fail to act."

West Coast Democrats called for the hearing Wednesday after the Washington Post reported that Cheney may have played a key role in the 2002 salmon die-off.


Chalk another one up for Cheney.

Let's just add this Travesty to the Bush Legacy. It will be written by the people. This is why Dem's do not want impeachment. That would only create a Republican Industrial Martyr now we must keep him alive so he can finish his term.

They do these things so when the crap hits the fan, you will have nothing to eat. We will rely on them and the UN for basic necessity's.

Foodwatersleep, they go together like life itself. You control that you control people, just like cattle or Injun's.

Just did a trip through the Walbran and Carmannah valleys. The butchery there is incredible. They've made a mess out of the most pristine, awesome beauty nature can create. Talk about choked salmon streams and neglect for nature's process.

Want some GM food and farmed salmon?

That's kinda funny. We've been eating it longer than you think. One of the problems related to obesity and bad health. They just don't mention it. Better get used to some of the little critters you normally wouldn't eat. They are better if you can get them before the traffic does. :shock:

Now that you ask, no thanks. But before long that will be the only things available. I have a tasty tree limb in the side yard...

As for those critters, one of the trucks got a squirrel out front but the crows got to it before anyone could have rushed it to the stew pot.

Fast they are, those crows...

I'm very glad that I can grow my own food and that I can do without meat of any kind, although I do like salmon and would miss it if I couldn't get it.
