This notice was distributed by the Secret Service to tenants of buildings facing Lafayette Square this week. Why?
Kamen reports in today's Post: This week's mysterious "No Peeking" memo -- generated after the Secret Service requested that organizations with windows facing Lafayette Park draw their blinds and stay away from the windows until 2 p.m. -- was sparked by a visit from Vice President Cheney. He was at Decatur House, which is on the park, for a Republican National Congressional Committee fundraising lunch.
Huh? Cheney can have the Secret Service make people stop looking at him. Or to not look at the building that he's inside? Madness.
This used to be a free country.
"For your safety" my ass. Not for anyone's safety.
