The three faces of Dick Cheney

Schroth, Raymond A.
June 2006
National Catholic Reporter;6/30/2006, Vol. 42 Issue 33, p14
The article focuses on British playwright David Hare's "Stuff Happens," his drama at the New York Public Theater about the U.S. government forcing the U.S. and Great Britain into the Iraq war. The play was attended by U.S. Vice-President Dick Cheney. The play is not about Cheney directly or even primarily about U.S. President George W. Bush. Rather, it focuses on former Secretary of State Colin Powell's moral dilemma and on national security advisor Condoleezza Rice, who was too coldly ambitious to stand by him.
