Recently, dynamic dunderheads Dick and Liz Cheney penned a Wall Street Journal op-ed criticizing the President on, of course, Iraq. The Cheneys lambasted the President for his refusal to dive head-first into another prolonged conflict in a country that we “liberated” without justification in the first place.
The Cheneys wrote:
Rarely has a U.S. president been so wrong about so much at the expense of so many. Too many times to count, Mr. Obama has told us he is “ending” the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan—as though wishing made it so. His rhetoric has now come crashing into reality. Watching the black-clad ISIS jihadists take territory once secured by American blood is final proof, if any were needed, that America’s enemies are not “decimated.” They are emboldened and on the march.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid was having none of it, though.
“If there’s one thing this country does not need, is that we should be taking advice from Dick Cheney on wars,” said Reid. “Being on the wrong side of Dick Cheney is being on the right side of history. To the architects of the Iraq War who are now so eager to offer their expert analysis, I say, Mr. President, thanks, but no thanks. Unfortunately, we have already tried it your way and it was the biggest foreign policy blunder in the history of the country.”
Reid reminded everyone that Cheney and other Bush officials were responsible for adopting an abysmal strategy that ultimately lost the United States billions of dollars and thousands of troops.
“Republicans are getting their talking points from the same neocons who pushed us into this war in the first place,” he said.
