Cheney Won't Be Needing Passport Any Time Soon

Former U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney, complicit in war crimes committed by the George W. Bush administration, canceled an upcoming Toronto speaking appearance due to "security concerns" over recent events in Canada.

In the last several weeks, Human Rights Watch had been urging the Canadian government to bring criminal charges against Cheney, due to his role in the torture of detainees.  His last visit to Vancouver had been marked by demonstrations as well.

Cheney was scheduled to speak at the Metro Toronto Convention Center next month, but spokesman Ryan Ruppert said Cheney had "decided it was better for [his] personal safety [to] stay out of Canada."
