Protesters picketing Vice President Dick Cheney's visit to the Air Force Academy Wednesday morning say they just want people to know that -- quote -- "Cheney and Bush have been telling us lies all along."

About 20 demonstrators held signs outside an entrance to the academy earlier today, in advance of Cheney's address during the school's graduation ceremonies.

Protesters arrived about 7:30 a-m, but planned to leave once commencement began.

Demonstrators carryied signs reading -- quote -- "Support means bring them home and help them heal," "End Middle-East occupations" and "Democracy is best taught by example, not by war."

Sixty-six-year-old Bobby Vincent of the Pikes Peak Justice and Peace Commission says the group just doesn't like Cheney or his policies.
