Two unindicted war-criminals, GW Bush & Dick Cheney
It took President Obama 2 years to find and kill the master-mind of 9/11 (Usama Bin Laden) and that is something GW Bush and Dick Cheney were too inept to do and, in fact, could never accomplish in 8 long years. It also took President Obama 2 years to capture the master-mind behind Benghazi.
Dick Cheney's daughter, Liz, worked for the failed Bush/Cheney administration and recently quit her bid for US Senator because the voters of Wyoming rejected her.
That said, due to GW Bush and Dick Cheney's foreign policy incompetence, less than 8 months after GW Bush and Dick Cheney were sworn into office, January 20, 2001, Bush/Cheney failures allowed one cheap-ass punk, Bin Laden, and 19 of his followers attack New York and the Pentagon in the worst attacks on U.S. soil in history. To underscore their impotence, Bush/Cheney let the master-mind of 9/11, Bin Laden, live in peace for 8 long years.
In the inept-world of Bush/Cheney, there was never a 'good time' to capture or kill Bin Laden because, a short 6 months after 9/11, Bush/Cheney didn't really give a shit about capturing Bin Laden.
GW BUSH: "I don't spend much time thinking about Bin Laden, I'm not that concerned with him. I don't know where he is ... I'll repeat what I said. I truly am not that concerned about him."
~ GW Bush 6 months after Bin Laden murdered 3000 people in New York and anhilated the US Financial district.
To quote General Paul Eaton who trained Iraqi troops during Operation Iraqi Freedom between 2003 & 2004:
GENERAL EATON: Dick Cheney and the Bush administration were incompetent war fighters. They ignored Afghanistan for 7 years with a crude approach to counter-insurgency warfare best illustrated by: 1. Deny it. 2. Ignore it. 3. Bomb it. While our intelligence agencies called the region the greatest threat to America, the Bush White House under-resourced our military efforts, shifted attention to Iraq, and failed to bring to justice the masterminds of September 11.
So today, two of Dick Cheney's pals, Saudi Arabia Prince Alwaleed bin Talal and Rupert Murdock, printed Dick and Liz Cheney's OpEd in their jointly owned Wall Street Journal. Dick & Liz Cheney filled their OpEd with lies as they expressed their disapproval of President Obama. At some parts of Dick & Liz Cheney's OpEd, it was as if they were looking in the mirror and talking to themselves.
Dick & Liz's subtitle describes the Bush/Cheney Administration perfectly:
Sub-Title of Dick & Liz Cheney OpEd:
"Rarely has a U.S. president been so wrong about so much at the expense of so many."
Now that sub-title is an UNBELIEVABLY SPOT ON
description of the Bush/Cheney Administration! "Rarely has a U.S. president been so wrong about so much at the expense of so many.
Then there's this excerpt where it sounds like Dick & Liz are talking about GW Bush:
DICK & LIZ: "Terrorists take control of more territory and resources than ever before in history, and he goes golfing."
LMFAO at Dick & Liz Cheney recalling that on August 4, 2002, GW Bush gave this little ditty to reporters while he was golfing.
GW BUSH: I call upon all nations to do everything they can to stop these terrorist killers. Thank you. Now watch this drive.
~ GW Bush while golfing in August 2002 talking to reporters
Here's another calculated lie by Dick & Liz:
DICK & LIZ: "When Mr. Obama and his team came into office in 2009, al Qaeda in Iraq had been largely defeated, thanks primarily to the heroic efforts of U.S. armed forces during the surge. Mr. Obama had only to negotiate an agreement to leave behind some residual American forces, training and intelligence capabilities to help secure the peace. Instead, he abandoned Iraq and we are watching American defeat snatched from the jaws of victory."
Ha! I notice they're seething with jealousy of "Mr. Obama" and they're lying through their GD warmongering teeth, as usual.
al Qaeda was not in Iraq until -- until -- Bush and Cheney lied America into a war for oil in Iraq. So, the world has Bush and Cheney to thank for al Qaeda even being in Iraq.
The surge did not defeat, nor even come close to defeating, al Qaeda. In factual world the surge was not even a military strategy, rather, the surge was nothing more than a purchase of an illusion.
GW Bush and Dick Cheney paid millions in US dollars to al Qaeda, who hijacked the Sunnis as soon as Bush/Cheney invaded, to not fight the Shiites so as to give the illusion that the fighting had stopped. But, once Bush/Cheney stopped paying for their illusion to the Sunnis, the fighting resumed.
GW Bush and Dick Cheney negotiated and signed the Status of Force Agreement wherein GW Bush & Dick Cheney agreed to not ... not ... leave behind any residual force. That means, even in war-criminal Dick & Liz world, it was GW Bush and Dick Cheney who "abandoned Iraq." not President Obama.
Sounds like Dick & Liz Cheney are saying Bush's status of forces agreement is a failure and they (Dick & Liz) expected President Obama to clean up Bush/Cheney's SOFA mess.
Here's Dick & Liz Cheney looking in the mirror, again, talking about themselves, again:
DICK & LIZ: "President Obama seems determined to leave office ensuring he has taken America down a notch. Indeed, the speed of the terrorists' takeover of territory in Iraq has been matched only by the speed of American decline on his watch."
LMFAO at Dick & Liz ... in factual world, Bush/Cheney's war-for-oil and overthrow of Saddam Hussein "ensured the terrorists' takeover of territory in Iraq.
" And Dick Cheney will forever be remembered as taking American down a bunch of notches.
Here's Dick & Liz talking about themselves again:
DICK & LIZ: "In the face of this threat, Mr. Obama is busy ushering America's adversaries into positions of power in the Middle East. First it was the Russians in Syria. Now, in a move that defies credulity, he toys with the idea of ushering Iran into Iraq. Only a fool would believe American policy in Iraq should be ceded to Iran, the world's largest state sponsor of terror."
ROTFLMFAO at Dick & Liz as I recall Bush and Cheney "ushered Iran into Iraq"
when Bush/Cheney ousted the Sunni majority leaders of Iraq and replaced them with Shiite Iranian sympathizers leaders like, Ibrahim al-Eshaiker directly after they overthrew.
Iranian sympathizer, Ibrahim al-Eshaiker, left Iraq for Iran in 1980 and became involved in the Supreme Council for the Islamic Revolution movement where he represented the Islamic Dawa Party. It's always been Iran's Ayatollah Khomeini's goal to have a 'Shiite Islamic Republic of Iraq' and that is exactly what Bush/Cheney gave them when they disbanded the Iraqi army in 2003 and began installing Shiite leaders and ousted Sunni leaders.
Once Bush/Cheney ousted the Sunni majority in 2003, Bush/Cheney "ushered Iran into Iraq."
Also, the moment Bush/Cheney invaded Iraq, they became the cause of "ushering America's adversaries into positions of power in the Middle East" and they are responsible for ushering al Qaeda into Iraq.
As for "Russians in Syria" Dick and Liz, once again, show they fail factual history. In factual world, the strong relations between Russia and Syria date back to 1946 when the then USSR signed a secret agreement that allowed for the Soviet military to help Syria in the international world. The Russians have had Syria's back ever since 1946.
Dick & Liz let their warped, war-mongering mentality slip:
DICK & LIZ: "... without American pre-eminence, there can be no world order."
" are you, Dick & Liz, fucking kidding me. "Pre-eminence" is rightwinged shorthand for: 'the rightwing's military industrial complex wants more taxpayer money - which means more war - at the expense of US troop's lives.'
Here's more quotes of Dick Cheney "being wrong about so much at the expense of others":
CHENEY: Simply stated, there is no doubt that Saddam Hussein now has weapons of mass destruction.
~Dick Cheney, August 26, 2002
CHENEY: "We believe he has, in fact, reconstituted nuclear weapons."
~ Dick Cheney, March 16, 2003
CHENEY: "My belief is we will, in fact, be greeted as liberators. . . . I think it will go relatively quickly, . . . [in] weeks rather than months."
~ Dick Cheney, March 16, 2003
CHENEY: Two days ahead of schedule, the world witnessed the arrival of a free and sovereign Iraq.
~ Dick Cheney, June 28, 2004
JOURNALIST: About a year ago, you said that the insurgency in Iraq was in its final throes. Do you still believe this?
~ Dick Cheney, March 18, 2006
um ... ok ... then why in 2007 did Bush/Cheney have to buy the surge?
CHENEY: If we had to do it over again we would do exactly the same thing."
JOURNALIST: Exactly the same thing?
CHENEY: Yes, Sir.
~ Dick Cheney, September 10, 2006
Dick Cheney is an unindicted war-criminal ... a sick, demented unindicted war-criminal and his daughter, Liz, is such a piece of crap that Dick Cheney could not even buy enough Wyoming voters to vote for her failed Senate bid.
GW Bush and Dick Cheney will forever be remembered, in all circles of the globe, as the worst Administration in U.S. History. GW Bush and Dick Cheney are unindicted war-criminals who falsified CIA intel so as to pimp their lies to US Congress in because they needed Congress to authorize the Bush/Cheney war-for-oil in Iraq.
