Robert De Niro New York, Apr 27 (ANI): Robert De Niro and Graydon Carter’s Tribeca Film Festival opening night party last week at the state criminal courthouse inspired celebrity guests to suggest the possible prosecution of US politician Dick Cheney.

Cheney, 68, who served as Vice President during George W. Bush’s presidency, has been accusing President Obama of risking national security by releasing CIA documents about waterboarding and other torture used against terror suspects.

Regarding his own participation Cheney called it legal, but human rights activists have called for his indictment.

“I was delighted that they published the stuff,” the New York Daily News quoted Bono as saying, though he wasn’t sure Cheney should be tried.

But author Salman Rushdie has been very forward about his feelings.

“I want to see Cheney in jail,” he said.

“There used to be a tradition in this country that when people leave office, they shut the hell up.

“President Bush has done that. If Vice President Cheney could learn that lesson, the world would be a better place,” he added. (ANI)
