Dick Cheney, the architect for the biggest warfare failure in U.S. history, has come out of the shadows to criticize President Obama on the Iraq Crisis. Mr. Cheney must forget the fact that he brought America, under false pretense, into a dubious war without merit to topple a regime that held the Middle East together. Although Saddam was horrible, he did keep the sectarian violence to a minimal. After America went into Iraq and destroyed the hold on these radicals, they pounced at the chance to kill Americans. Dick Cheney has some balls on him.
"Let's replay just a few of Cheney's greatest hits:
"And he [Saddam Hussein] is actively pursuing nuclear weapons at this time." (March, 2002)
"I think it will go relatively quickly. Weeks rather than months." (March, 2003)
"My belief is we will, in fact, be greeted as liberators." (March, 2003)
I think they're in the last throes, if you will, of the insurgency." (July, 2005)
Seriously, Dick, shut up."
