Marc Parent suggests here that Cheney still holds extraordinary power and is not giving it up.
We know Cheney was in personal charge of NORAD as the planes moved in on the twin towers. 911 could not have happened without his support. It gave him power to dominate the world.

I think that power is falling away.
We will see as the days and weeks go by.

The long march of Dick Cheney
For his entire career, he sought untrammeled power. The Bush presidency and 9/11 finally gave it to him -- and he's not about to give it up.

Nov. 24, 2005 | The hallmark of the Dick Cheney administration is its illegitimacy. Its essential method is bypassing established lines of authority; its goal is the concentration of unaccountable presidential power. When it matters, the regular operations of the CIA, Defense Department and State Department have been sidelined.

Richard Nixon is the model, but with modifications. In the Nixon administration, the president was the prime mover, present at the creation of his own options, attentive to detail, and conscious of their consequences. In the Cheney administration, the president is volatile but passive, firm but malleable, presiding but absent. Once his complicity has been arranged, a closely held 'cabal' -- as Lawrence Wilkerson, once chief of staff to former Secretary of State Colin Powell, calls it -- wields control."
