Cheney Avoids Arrest in Canada

Dick "Chickenhawk" Cheney cancelled a planned speaking engagement in Toronto next month, evading possible apprehension for human rights violations (link).

Former US Vice President Cheney was a major proponent of overseas adventurism in Iraq & Afghanistan. His commitment & support for "harsh interrogation" led to allegations he promoted torture of captured suspects, and thus put his own US forces at greater risk.
