I am trying to label points in a graph that I am generating with the
following.  Before I attempt to overlay the two graphics objects I want
to get the text to locate in conjunction with the points on the circle.
In other words I need to locate the text at the vertices of the octagon
with an offset.  I am finding that all but the first three points of
"dots" are located at the bottom of the graph.  Does anybody have some
insight into what is going on here?

<< Geometry`Polytopes`
Show[Graphics[{{PointSize[.03], Point /@ dots},{Circle[{0,0},1]}},
        AspectRatio -> 1]]
      Thread[Text[{A, B, C,
D},{dots[[1]],dots[[2]],dots[[3]],dots[[4]]}   ]]},
