When asked by Bill O’Reilly on Fox News what the United States ultimately gained by going to war in Iraq, former Vice President Dick “Dick” Cheney said that we stopped the non-existent WMDs.
Bill O’ The Clown doesn’t want to “Monday morning quarterback” Iraq or blame Cheney or his hand-puppet Bush for pissing away trillions of dollars and killing hundreds of thousands of people, but he would like to know what we got out of it.
O’REILLY: I don’t blame you, you Vice President Cheney or President Bush for doing what you did — I’m not Monday morning quarterbacking — but right now, what do we get out of Iraq for all of that blood and treasure? What do we get out of it?
CHENEY: What we gain and my concern was then and it remains today is that the biggest threat we face is the possibility of terrorist groups like al Qaeda equipped with weapons of mass destruction, with nukes, bugs or gas. That was the threat after 9/11 and when we took down Saddam Hussein we eliminated Iraq as a potential source of that.
The dead speak to you through his raspy chords as blood drips from his fangs and contempt for human life burns in his eye sockets.
If you can bare to watch long enough, he also goes on to blame the Obama administration for a surge in extremist recruitment that Cheney’s policies undoubtedly created. Blowback for the Bush administration has barely even begun.
To name his book “Heart” is clearly an attempt to kill Irony once and for all, because his job isn’t finished until no one is left breathing.
