DENVER, Feb. 11 (UPI) -- U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney is trying to block the release of video depositions by White House aides in a suit against the Secret Service, a report said.…

Cheney's motion expressed particular concern that video of the deposition could be posted on the Internet video-sharing site YouTube.com.
