Darth Vader speaks:
They should have been ready before anything ever happened,' Cheney told MailOnline exclusively during a party in Georgetown celebrating the launch of a new book by former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld.(Because everybody wants to know what Rumsfeld now has to say).
'When we were there, on our watch, we were always ready on 9/11, on the anniversary,' he recalled. 'We always anticipated they were coming for us, especially in that part of the world.'
'I cannot understand why they weren't ready to go,' the former two-term vice president said of the Obama administration.
'You've got units in the Defense Department that are superb. They practice for this contingency. And they didn't have anybody in the area,'
'The [Benghazi] hearing should be damned interesting,' Cheney predicted.
Wait, what? You were 'always there' on 9/11? Did you say 'anniversary? Why was there any anniversary to be somewhere, on? Oh right, this:
President Obama, please observe and learn from this display of 'leadership':
President George W. Bush drew praise in 2001 from both Republicans and Democrats for his handling of the 9/11 attacks on the Pentagon and New York City's World Trade Center. Dick Cheney said the Sept. 11 anniversary was always a cause for heightened security around the world when he was vice presidentFunny, as far as I'm aware, his 'handling' of 9/11 included flying around on Air Force One looking for a place to hide, and patting firemen reassuringly on the shoulder.
Irony is dead. This guy should be in prison, not doing the cocktail party circuit flogging books detailing his and his cronies' failures. At least crawl under a rock and don't come out again.
