In a mind-blowing display of arrogance, war criminal Dick Cheney said that Hillary Clinton should be held responsible for Benghazi.
WALLACE: What do you think about Benghazi? Do you think that she did anything wrong and should she be held responsible for the events surrounding that attack?
D. CHENEY: She was secretary of State at the time that it happened. She was one of the first in Washington to know about it. I think she clearly bears responsibility for whatever the State Department did or didn’t do with respect to that — that crisis.
I do think it’s a major issue. I don’t think we’ve heard the last of it yet. And I would expect that she will be held accountable during the course of the campaign.
Cheney thinks that Hillary Clinton should be held responsible for the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi when she was Secretary of State, but doesn’t think that he should be held responsible for the more than 4,000 American deaths in Iraq while he was vice president. That makes Cheney a hypocrite of the highest degree.
Here’s an idea. Before Hillary Clinton gets “held responsible” for Benghazi, let’s hold Cheney and the Republican Party accountable for the lies that led to the invasion of Iraq. It is far from the smartest move for Fox News and the Republican Party to trot out Dick Cheney to question Hillary Clinton’s foreign policy credibility.
Cheney and George W. Bush are the faces of Republican Party foreign policy failures. It is unfathomable that Republicans could be this dumb, but judging from RNC Chairman Reince Priebus’s comments today, Republicans really are going to remind everybody of legacy of failure by trying to challenge Hillary Clinton on foreign policy.
