Navy Tries to Put Cheney Back in the Attic

Kevin Drum of the Washington Monthly has more on the third carrier group, the Nimitz, that appeared at one point to be joining the USS Eisenhower in the Persian Gulf. The Eisenhower is on its way home and the Nimitz has taken its place, meaning we have two carrier groups in the gulf instead of the three that would have heightened tensions (isn't the price of gasoline and oil high enough for Bush and Cheney's oil friends?). Drum's post offers some interesting details on what may have been a showdown between the Navy and Cheney's lunatic fringe.
