If Cheney shot his friend in the face and chest because the friend was hiding behind some bushes, as Cheney alleges (remember, all this time the Cheney people said it was the other guy's fault for hiding and not announcing himself), then how did Cheney watch his friend fall to the ground?
"The image of him falling is something I will never be able to get out my mind," Cheney said, somberly. "It was one of the worst days of my life."If you could see him the split second AFTER you shot him, then you could see him the split second BEFORE you shot him. So either Cheney could see the guy, and shot him anyway (which completely contradicts what Cheney's people have been saying for 5 days now), or Cheney couldn't see the guy and he's now lying to the nation in order to incur our sympathy.
