    Secure undisclosed locations only, and he wouldn’t get anywhere NEAR that close to any action, even when he was young and had the opportunity.

    Cheney was the first government official to ‘disappear’ from Washington after 9/11. He was he first one calling for an Iraqi war after. Thank you for the truth-telling, Mr. Oliphant. Democracy can’t work without the truth — the tested, statistically accurate TRUTH — being told.

    All we can do is to hope and even pray that our current president is not as gullible as GW Bush was. And will work to keep us out of this quagmire of war and useless killing!!

    “I truly believe we will be treated as liberators.”
    “I truly believe that terrorism is in its last throes.”
    Another Republican/Fox “news” viewer hero.

    As Cheney has pointed out, he and Bush, jr liberated the Middle East from totalitarian rulers who had New WMD that only the most clever and patriotic members of the coalition could see, and then left the entire Middle East peaceful and prosperous. Sadly, as Cheney points out, term limits forced Cheney and Bush, jr to leave the Middle East in Obama’s incompetent hands, and it was Obama’s criminal neglect that allowed the rise of the DA (or, in English, the the Islamic State). And we can believe Cheney, since those who could NOT see Saddam’s New WMD and foolish said that Cheney and Bush, jr had engaged in naked aggression were just not clever and patriotic enough to see those WMD. (And besides, every reliable source agrees that Saddam had many cats, and those cats were clearly Weapons of Mouse Destruction, no matter what the nattering nabobs of negativism might say.)

    Thanks Pat,
    We have to constantly expose those Neo-Cons for the blow hards that they are. Actually, I think “Darth Cheney” probably died 20 years ago and they are keeping him blabbering on spare parts.

    So, if one isn’t a veteran, one can’t have opinions on war? Then what makes BHO’s opinions on war valid? Yours? Think it through. Can men have opinions on women? Whites of Blacks? Young of Old?

    The whole world thought Iraq had WMD’s including Bush, Clinton, Congress, U.N., CIA, Russia, Iran, Israel, Saudi Arabia, etc. Saddam worked very hard to fool everyone. The U.S. went to war with the best information possible. The Monday Morning Quarterbacks are self-serving and ignorant.

    @Marco Marco

    Yes. Fabricated by Saddam and believed by the whole world.

    @John Locke: Cheney’s opinions became policy. His opinions about torture became LAW – who else would have directed the Justice Department to fashion a definition of torture that would justify it’s use? His opinion of Saddam Hussein led him to direct the CIA to fashion a justification for war that had no basis in fact. His opinion of an above-the-law presidency led him to stonewall critics and investigators who sought information and factual justification for the extremism that was rampant in the executive branch. Your claim that “the whole world thought Iraq had WMDs” is about as disingenuous a statement as I’ve read here; in fact, Cheney directed this whole campaign of lies. Aside from LBJs lies that got us into Vietnam, no president or vice-president in our history had ever before lied to the congress and the world with such catastrophic results. Cheney’s welcome to have opinions – let’s just be sure his opinions don’t lead to any more deaths.

    Noooo, more like…
    “Clinton let Bin Laden go.”
    “Iraq’s WMDs were smuggled out to Syria on two converted airliners.”
    “Obama is not really an American citizen.”
    “Death panels! Death panels!”
    Noooo, no Tea Party Republican would EVER buy into such silliness right, Sparky?
    And BTW, if I want a straw-man, I’ll go watch Wizard of Oz; no one here but YOU is talking about Cheney ‘having no right to express his opinion.’ Got that?

    only 4500 casualties? Send Cheney & Bush back in, but this time let them go alone.

    Thank you. My father was career Air Force, served in WWII, Korea and Viet Nam, with medals that fill a good sized drawer. My brother was wounded in Viet Nam. They appreciate a president who doesn’t regard them as pawn pieces. Obama tries everything else possible before sending people ( yeah, servicemen are actual people with actual families and actual lives) into situations where they are going to get shot at. When Chaney and Bush came into office, most servicemen voted Republican. You can count us as another minority group that the Republicans have chased off into the Democratic camp.
