Do not adjust your monitors or speakers. Even though you may find your jaw on the floor after watching this next clip, it is not a hoax!
The following clip really does show Fox’s flagship host, Bill O’Reilly, grilling former Vice-President Dick Cheney over U.S. military intervention in not just Iraq, but in Afghanistan as well.
At one point in the interview, O’Reilly asked Cheney flatly if the Iraq War was truly worth it.
“We spent a trillion dollars on this with a lot of pain and suffering on the American military. What did we get out of it?”
Cheney of course gave the predictable responses (lies?) about evidence of collusion between the Saddam Hussein and Al Qaeda, weapons of mass destruction and every other completely debunked talking point that Cheney/Bush pumped out in the run-up to the Iraq War. “I don’t know if their suffering and blood was worth it,” O’Reilly said in respoinse at one point to the barrage of rhetoric Cheney was spewing.
