"They leave me no choice. Prepare to launch photon torpedoes!"
A top House Democrat contradicted White House claims that it follows its own security safeguards adequately. Rep. Henry Waxman threatened to issue subpoenas if the White House did not comply with House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform requests for voluntary interviews with officials involved in White House security decision-making.
"Contrary to recent White House claims, there is evidence that it has repeatedly failed to investigate security violations, take corrective action following breaches, and appropriately protect classified information," said Rep. Henry Waxman, said in a statement released this morning.
The Vice President responded to Rep. Waxman from his independant multibillion-dollar satellite office orbiting planet Earth, saying, "The president and the entity formerly known as vice president are complying with all the rules and regulations regarding the handling of classified material and making sure that it is safeguarded and protected and we want to hear no more about it!"
If Waxman was unwilling to comply with this order, Cheney threatened, "I will advise the launching of photon torpedoes from my armed orbiting office that will rain down upon his committee -- and my next meeting with the president is currently scheduled for June 28."
