The movie VICE commences with the big lie. It's a lie so big that it's a back handed compliment to conspiracy researchers.

Most people wont know that on 9/11 Cheney didn't instruct the military to shoot down a plane headed for The Pentagon. In fact he did the opposite. Transportation Secretary Norman Mineta heard Cheney say the following:

My initial impression, was that the movie was going to be a whitewash.

Not so.

VICE is an excellent portrait of the man. Cheney comes across as ruthless and single minded about war profiteering. No surprises there...

In contrast to this, it's clear he is also a loyal family man, who stood by his daughter, Mary Cheney, when she declared her lesbian proclivities in the 80's. In those days this was anathema to Conservative policy, as the transgender agenda was yet to commence.

VICE is an excellent movie with lots of little details that I wasn't previously aware, such as it was Supreme Court justice Antonin Scalia who nixed the Florida vote in the Bush vs Gore election.

That decision had a huge impact on the subsequent history of the USA, although I have since heard (purely hearsay you understand) plan A was for Al Gore to resign post 9/11, ushering his VP pick, Joe Lieberman into power.
