Dick Cheney Thinks He Has Found the WMD This Time And It’s All Obama’s Fault

Dick Cheney

Sure, Cheney led you totally astray on Iraq, but why not believe him this time when he tells us all that Obama is leading to “the first use of a nuclear weapon since Hiroshima and Nagasaki.”

Republican Former Vice President Dick Cheney (of WMD infamy) appeared on CBS to hawk his new book and warn us all that this time, he is sure about the WMD. In order to save ourselves, we need to kill the Iran deal. You know, the one that world leaders say is the best thing we can get.

Speaking on CBS This Morning, Cheney said, “I think we can get a better deal.” In fact, even though world leaders have said that there would be no more going back to the table if this deal doesn’t pass, Cheney bucked that reality, “I think what you can do is, if Congress will reject the deal, which I hope they will, and override president’s veto, then you can go back to negotiating table.”

Watch here:

They started off with the standard Dick Cheney-terrorizing-Americans-with-weapons-of-mass-destruction bit, as he wrote in his book, “The Obama agreement will lead to a nuclear-armed Iran, a nuclear arms race in the Middle East, and more than likely, the first use of a nuclear weapon since Hiroshima and Nagasaki.”

Like all grownups, Cheney claimed that his part of the Iraq war was a success, any failures are President Obama’s fault. In fact, Cheney has decided that the withdrawal of troops is what created the vacuum of power that led to ISIL, and he has blamed Obama for this even though he knows that the SOFA was signed when he was still in office:

“When we got through in Iraq at the end of our administration, Iraq was in good shape. We had the surge; the president made a very courageous decision in ’07 and we had ’07, ’08 where we established a coalition government in Iraq.”

Well, no, actually. And Cheney knows it. We wouldn’t have been in Iraq if it weren’t for the repeated, strategic, and deliberate lies of the Bush administration. Once there, we couldn’t get out in spite of the Mission Accomplished banners.

But it was Bush who signed the Status of Forces Agreement that agreed that we would be withdrawing our troops. The U.S. had no say in that, as ultimately Iraq wanted us gone. So we did all that we could, training the Iraqi security forces and staying on in an advise and assist mode. But vacuums were created by the invasion and they were filled by ISIL.

The book and the appearance were both obviously politically motivated, in hopes of smearing President Obama’s foreign policy by blaming him for the results of George W. Bush’s policies and then using that false construct to attack the 2016 Democratic front-runner and former Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton.

Cheney never stopped telling us all that we were going to die soon and it would be Obama’s fault, and hey, Clinton was there so blame her too — right in keeping with how Bush/Cheney managed to make the American people think Saddam Hussein was behind the attack on 9/11, in spite of the evidence to the contrary proving there was no evidence of ties between Saddam Hussein and al-Qaeda.

“The real challenge is going to be for Sec. Clinton to try to separate herself from what we detail in the book, very well documented set of issues, in terms of the danger that this president has put us in, and she of course was there for a large part of it.”

Yes, take it from the guy who told Rush Limbaugh on September 13, 2002:

“What’s happening, of course, is we’re getting additional information that, in fact, Hussein is reconstituting his biological, chemical, and nuclear weapons programs.” There is no such new intel.

No that was not what was happening at all. Let us revisit actual history long enough to recount that Vice President Cheney was in office and busy ignoring actual intel when the largest attack in history occurred on home soil.

So, do you want to die? You’re going to be killed imminently unless you do as Dick says. Don’t ask any questions, don’t wait for facts and never, ever verify. Don’t have an exit plan. Just start a war and wing it. That’s just how Bush/Cheney rolled.

Republicans are desperate to derail the Iran deal (which is looking better by the minute for Obama and thus the world) for a variety of reasons, not the least of which lest the contrast to their completely tragic handling of Iraq look even worse in an election year.

  1. just watching an episode of NCIS where a guy was killed ’cause someone hacked his pacemaker and sped up his heart…

    the controls on cars have been hacked, laptops, the street warning signs changed to WARNING!!! ZOMBIE ATTACK!!!

    I hate to say this but doesn’t can’t someone slow down Cheney’s? or is it because he doesn’t have a heart?

  2. Where was the so called journalist to call him out on his bullshit? Oh I forgot cant jeopardize those invites to eat kochtail wieners to rub shoulders with the doofus of the universe

  3. Unfortunately,there are those in the reich wing that will slobber all over every word this war criminal has to say.
    He,just like Netanyahu,only see one remedy for the middle east,complete and utter destruction

  4. GWB is and was, arrogant and stupid. Also most probably the victim of brain damage due to alcohol abuse. Dick was born evil, being that he is the heir apparent to Satan.

  5. If Fox wants to know about the Obama administration’s foreign policy agenda, it would be better to have a member from the Obama administration on Fox and ask that person questions. Dick the d**k is not up to snuff regarding the foreign policy of an administration that does not allow him to sit in on meetings.

    Hell, he wasn’t up to snuff when he did sit in on meetings! What Cheney thinks is irrelevant

  6. Dick Cheney…wasn’t he the guy who rejected Iran’s offer of concessions on their nuclear program in 2003 because “we don’t talk to evil”? So, he thinks President Obama should insist on a “better” deal, but when he was in a position to make a deal, his answer was no deal at all.

    You see, there’s no money to be made from peace. The real money is in war profiteering. He’s not out to make money from selling a book – he’s out to make a fortune selling another war.

    Dick Cheney…sociopathic chickenhawk. There is no bar so low that this piece of human vermin can’t slither under it.

  7. Liz Cheney – a woman so vile she makes Ann Coulter look like an amateur. If she was a man she would be… Dick Cheney.

  8. Are we sure Cheney’s not funding Isis with that “missing” 2.3 TRillion? Im not sure. Hes evil spawn who loves to kill young Americans. Funny how HE never served in a military.

  9. Yeah, let’s listen to the guy that lied and created this mess in the first place. Of COURSE Fox gives him a microphone to spew one lie after another, to denigrate the President, and to show the world just how truly evil this MF’er is.

    Anybody remember those days when criticizing the Bush Administration was tantamount to treason, and how a lot of lives and careers were ruined as a result?

    Fun times.

  10. slowing his pacemaker would make him REALLY tired… probably too tired to blowhard on Fox…

    where is Anonymous when you need them?

    oh yeah… as I posted elsewhere… why hasn’t Fox news been declared a known hate group?

  11. Keep this GOP Fact In Mind:

    ‘The Deafness Before The Storm’

    On August.6, 2001 Pres G.W.Bush received a Classified Review of The Threats Posed By Osama bin Laden.

    That morning’s “Presidential Daily Brief:
    “BIN LADEN DETERMINED TO STRIKE IN U.S.”

    (Bush/Cheney TOTALLY IGNORED IT!

    NO Airports on Guard!
    NO Raising Of Security!

    Bush/Cheney KNEW it was coming and sometimes I think Israel (as much as I love Israel)
    Was the one who actually put it in MOTION!

    The PNAC Group was hoping for another Pearl-Harbor type attack.

    “PNAC’s most important study notes that selling this plan to the American people will likely take a long time,
    “ABSENT SOME catastrophic CATASTROPHIC CATALYZING EVENT”
    *****Like A New Pearl Harbor.”

  12. Why don’t we go ahead and arrest this for “war crimes” and get it over with. it’s time to stop pissing around with evil old white man. He got rich over the deaths of American soldiers and is not running around America with his BS. It’s time to making him pay by putting him away in some prison cell.

  13. Don’t leave his Tasmanian street trash, carpet bagging assed daughter out of the lies. Shame on you CBS for having such sleaze on your morning show.

  14. Why are people still asking for his opinion on anything? The only people who exude as much evil from their core are the Koch brothers.

  15. So he didn’t announce that when he was running Haliburton he sold Iran the technology and parts to build a Nuclear weapon.

    Say it isn’t so.

  16. What the Republicans and war mongers seem to forget is that this deal was negotiated by the P5+1 (England, France, China, Russia, the US, and Germany) and Iran. Do they really think these other countries would have not negotiated in good faith? Even if Congress does not support it, chances are good the other countries will still honor it. Where will that leave us? Looking like idiots, yet again.

  17. I agree with Cheney that there is a possibility of Obama being responsible for the deployment of a nuclear device. However Obama should order the CIA to locate a Davy Crockett Tactical Nuclear Device, dust it off and re-fit it with fissionable material and deploy it on Cheney’s compound making sure that the greatest amount of Cheney DNA by dint of offspring be present. Cutting the head off of the snake is required for progress towards peace.

  18. I think Dickless will live forever. So much more evil to complete yet. Heaven will not take him, and the Devil could not compete with his evil self. Lizard is trying to be the son he never had.

  19. AndyCA: IF and when that happens and Obama is still President, I hope he doesn’t go to the funeral. Obama Call’s in sick: “I can’t go, I have the flu….will watch it on TV. Biden will represent.”

    I can’t see Obama having to say ANYTHING nice or civil about that Dickhead.

  20. Liz Cheney=Dick.ess Cheney.
    The mommy should be devoting all her time to raising her children,but then again the less time she spends icdoctrinating them the better. She is pure evil like her father. Bet he really did t have a heart transplant,he’s too evil for it to survive.

  21. Jesus, giving this creep airtime to spew his poison is the equivalent of German media giving Himmler, Goering, Goebbels and the rest a platform for their views.

    Disgusting. CBS, CNN and the rest should be ashamed. Of course Fox has not shame.

    This creep would be arrested if he ever set foot outside the US yet our media treats him like a wise elder statesman.

  22. Cheney, what makes you think that you are relevant today? You have lied so many times, you criticize…what good are you to our nation if you can’t even speak well of anyone or anything.

    The only thing you know how to do is criticize everything. You are indeed very unhappy and most likely frustrated because no one is giving you an ear.

    Poor baby! It’s time for you to leave the sandbox, grow up, act and speak like a responsible adult. If you can’t do this, then keep your mouth shut…the damage you’ve done has created the mess we’re in today. And your idea of a “better deal” is to create havoc in the Middle East while your friends make $$.

  23. You’re absolutely correct even that he’s not allowed to enter any country…

    just as GW is not allowed to enter any country. I remember when he wanted to visit Canada a few years ago, Canada told him he’d be arrested the minute he set foot in the country. Both were declared war criminals by the World Court.
