Even when Cheney’s right, he’s wrong
Former Vice President Dick Cheney, still smarting from his party's loss in 2009, continues to come out swinging.
His latest TV interview has him livid that the current Obama administration would even think of investigating Bush's antics. As testament to his job performance, he correctly states there hasn't been a al-Queda attack on American soil for eight years.
Sounds good as a sound bite, but I got to thinking. America sends 135,000 troops to smack dab in the middle of the Middle East. With the famous ‘surge,’ we had 165,000 U.S. soldiers there. That's a middle-sized city.
So, instead of these ‘terrorists’ having to emigrate to the USA, live as sleeper cells, awaiting bin-Laden's command to wake up and kill, they can just stay at home, with friends and family, and kill us there.
The death toll, since 9/11, now stands at 4,350 and not likely to be reduced as long as we're there, six years and counting. To Al-Queda and all those that hate us, whether they kill us here or there, makes no difference.
And a special note to Dick Cheney: Please go to an ‘undisclosed location.’
