Nigeria to charge Dick Cheney in pipeline bribery case

Bloomberg reports:

Nigeria will file charges against former U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney and officials from five foreign companies including Halliburton Co. over a $180 million bribery scandal, a prosecutor at the anti-graft agency said.

Indictments will be lodged in a Nigerian court “in the next three days,” Godwin Obla, prosecuting counsel at the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, said in an interview today at his office in Abuja, the capital. An arrest warrant for Cheney “will be issued and transmitted through Interpol,” the world’s biggest international police organization, he said.

Peter Long, Cheney’s spokesman, said he couldn’t immediately comment when contacted today and said he would respond later to an e-mailed request for comment.

    My lawyers have assured me that that it is perfectly kosher for Nigeria to waterboard “Pricky Dick” Cheney in order to get a confession out of him. After all, he’s both a terrorist and an “unlawful enemy combatant”. So, GO FOR IT, Nigerians. Just DO it!
    Feel free to use kidnapping and/or super-duper, enhanced, ‘extraordinary rendition’ if you need to. I would consider it a great honour to help in any way that I legally can.
    P.S. “Pricky Dick” has finally lost his secret service protection (after two six-month extensions), hasn’t he?

    Godwin Obla, prosecuting counsel in Nigeria is not afraid of being murdered in filing charges against former vice president Dick Cheney, who is also on the top of the international criminal corporation, a sort of mega maffia around the globe. Good luck
    for Godwin Obla.
