Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, June 19, 2014

Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly is being applauded for grilling Dick Cheney over an op-ed in which the former vice president harshly -- and some say hypocritically -- criticized President Barack Obama's handling of the crisis in Iraq. In the op-ed, Cheney wrote, "Rarely has a U.S. president been so wrong about so much at the expense of so many." During her interview with Cheney and his daughter Liz on Wednesday night, Kelly introduced him as "the man who helped lead us into Iraq in the first place." She read the quote back to the former vice president and then said, "But time and time again, history has proven that you got it wrong in Iraq as well, sir."

"You said Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction," Kelly told Cheney. "You said we would be greeted as liberators. You said the insurgency was in the last throes, back in 2005. And you said after our intervention that extremists would have to 'rethink their strategy of jihad.' Now with almost $1 trillion spent there, with 4,500 American lives lost there, what do you say to those who say, 'You were so wrong about so much at the expense of so many'?"

OH PLEASE! Cheney is crazy like a FOX. He committed abject treason, is more accurate. Those people and those people whose children "WE" tortured in Abu Ghraib are now our sworn enemies, not only life, but for generations to come. The NWO has been at WAR, for world domination, with Islam since the Crusades (which word W used while beating the drum for invasion of Iraq.) Yep, "WE" pillaged, raped and tortured innocent Iraqis all right.

i was out at the gay club the NIGHT BEFORE the Iraqi invasion, and there was a Blackwater goon there trying recruit guys off the street to go, ship out the next day; and he was psychotic-looking and pumped up to cause maximum PAIN. The sociopath Cheney Group recruited psychopaths to carry out Abu Ghraib, murder & mayhem.

They are LOVING this.

It's not silliness to prevent history from being rewritten so that the neocons can come back and try it again.

The american people should never be allowed to forget WHO put us into this disaster. Yes dems in congress voted to go along, but their mistake was TRUSTING THE PRESIDENT, who cherry picked and falsified intelligence to get their support.

HE set the policy and his republican war hawks spread the message.

Dems didn't create this war. It is the result of a republican president living out a republican war president fantasy. If we forget that lesson, we are doomed to repeat it, as we would if we had elected McCain.

Repubs say "quit complaining about bush" because they want everyone to forget what republican leadership does to the country.

"Everyone was in agreement about Saddam's abilities when it came to weapons of mass destruction..." -- Cheney

Yes, everyone except the CIA and the few in Congress who voted no to invading Iraq. I find it so interesting that he lumps the entirety of Congress together approving the invasion ("larger approval vote than first Gulf War") as though that's a testament to him being right. He knows full well that it was he and his underlings (Ashcroft, Wolfowitz, etc.) that was demanding intelligence agencies to find justifications to invade Iraq. They were doing so before 9/11 and franticly doing so after 9/11.

The bogus information's credibility procured by the intelligence agencies and presented as fact to Congress had already been questioned by the exact agents that procured it. For instance, German intelligence held and interviewed the Curveball informant. They were fully convinced that his information was completely crap. When the U.S. intelligence agencies inquired about the Curveball informant, the Germans told them exactly what they thought about the informant's credibility. U.S. intelligence didn't care whether the informant's information was credible or not because Bush and Co. demanded they see evidence regardless of credibility. U.S. intelligence was just following orders. So they presented a full report on the Curveball. Bush and Co. used it as prime justification for action. Once MSM took notice of the credibility issue behind that specific justification and began inquiring about it, Bush and Co. turn around and blame CIA for not informing them (and Congress) about the credibility issue with Curveball. CIA was just following orders. Problem was that Bush and Co., in reality, did not care about intelligence credibility when it came to Iraq. They just wanted an in and they got it.

Read the post above yours.

Another example would be leaking the false yellowcake story to the new york times, and then CITING the new york times' false story as justification for invasion.

They planted the fake story, then used it as evidence.

Of course they were really smart about not ever actually telling lies they could be held accountable for, but it was no mistake they always mentioned 9/11 in the same sentence as iraq, even though it was totally unrelated. But that is FALSIFYING a connection in any reasonable person's mind.

You mean the post above mine, being my previous post? Curveball wasn't falsified. It was propped up as credible even though it was clear the informant lacked credibility. The information was altered, but inappropriately used to mislead never the less.

The yellow cake story could very well be excused (at least in RW echo chambers) in the same manner they have with Curveball. It's a matter of when did they know the information was false and when did the intelligence agency know? Because according to Powell and Cheney, the CIA et al. did not inform ANYONE in the administration that the information being provided to justify Iraq invasion completely lacked credibility. Plausible deniability much? Truly explains the rush to invade, IMO. They knew there was no chance to go in once their initial justification was poked completely full of holes. And that, obviously, only took a matter of time.

LOL...not at all. Bush and Co. definitely misled the country, Congress, and foreign leaders regarding Saddam and his capabilities using information that lacked all credibility. But that doesn't mean he altered any of that information, or even that it was created out of thin air. That's the allegation I was asking about, as falsify insinuates the alteration of something. The problem with the information was not only that it was false, but that the sources lacked all credibility. Such in the case of Curveball, to which the German intelligence knew full well and whom informed U.S. intelligence of as much. The current allegations coming from Bush Administration officials is that the intelligence community did not inform anyone in leadership positions that the information being used to justify an invasion was coming from multiple sources that lacked credibility. IMO, that's just as bad as falsifying information or creating evidence out of thin air. Because the administration was ignorant(?) to the credibility issues behind the intelligence, Congress too was ignorant. But when the administration is demanding the procurance of intelligence regardless of credibility (post-9/11), what do they expect is going to be procured when no legitimate evidence exists? Which they had already been searching for long before 9/11, might I add.

Ya gotta give Cheney one thing he sure has some chutzpah.

Cheney has told more falsehoods than anyone and yet has the nerve to open his trap again on a subject he apparently knew nothing about.

"Simply stated, there is no doubt that Saddam Hussein now has weapons of mass destruction. There is no doubt he is amassing them to use against our friends, against our allies, and against us."

the insurgency in Iraq was "in its last throes."

we'll be "greeted as liberators"

Cheney's lies have cost us 4,500 Americans lives...

tens of thousands more Americans were gravely injured...

we spent a couple of trillion dollars...

and somewhere between 100,000 and 500,000 Iraqis died.

Cheney needs to STFU and crawl back into his sewer and die.

Here's a question:

Is it possible that there was information the White House that could not be shared with the public, but was shared with Congress at the time, that provided concrete evidence to attack Iraq?

I ask this because I believe there are times when the current administration and previous ones took action knowing things the rest of us will never be told.

The secrecy of the answers to questions during the 911 commission sickened me and still does. Both parties were behind those doors.
The 911 commission report also sucks.

RSTY, the information being used to forward the cause to Iraq was not credible. However, at the time all the information was coming out - it sounded credible. You have to remember what happened before the rattling of swords.

Remember this(from wiki):

The sanctions against Iraq were a near-total financial and trade embargo imposed by the United Nations Security Council on the nation of Iraq. They began August 6, 1990, four days after Iraq's invasion of Kuwait, stayed largely in force until May 2003 (after Saddam Hussein's being forced from power),[1] and persisted in part, including reparations to Kuwait, through the present.[2][3][4]

Think about this. The sanctions were from 1990 until 2003. That's thirteen years. When did Bush become president? 2001-2009.

So for 10 years, the public around the world saw Iraq as evil. Iraq was punished. But, why didn't the punishment end after one year? Three years? Five years? Ten years?

If you asked the US Congress, Iraq was not cooperating. They needed to be punished. They weren't 'telling everything' or 'showing everything'. they were hiding something. Most people had that opinion because the UN had to keep going in.

I remember those years.

I don't think they needed such an excuse used to attack Iraq. After 9/11 Iraq was an easy scapegoat for anger. The US public wanted blood.
Russia played in Afghanistan - remember how that played out?
As a war game, Iraq was an easier task.

Sometimes I wonder if all this fighting we do is to make sure our combat troops are combat-ready for a bigger one.

Finding out later about the intel? It's a lot like today's administration. Eventually we find out more and find out they overplayed their hand, too.

There were few in Congress that paused and voted 'no'. Look at today's Congress. They're doing it again.

I believe in non-intervention. The world must resolve it's problems and we have to stop being one of them.

I agree Boaz and I am glad that you acknowledge that blame is in order. Some of it rightly should be put on many Democrats, not all though, but a larger portion should be on REpublicans who hyped this invasion as a patriotic war that only Americahaters would oppose.

I always found it strange that, as a member of Congress, you don't have clearance for everything your vote is expected on.

If I represent an entire State, or at least a district, I should have full clearance. My vote will affect millions of people, but the vote is expected without full disclosure.

Don't worry. Seppuku first requires that you some honor to be inclined do so.

As for disappearing into obscurity...I agree but, well, you would think he would take clue from G.W. but apparently that is not the case.

Look at his portfolio and tell him how wrong he is. May be we misunderstand his purpose.

How long will it take for the left to admit Obama should be impeached for lying and breaking the law?
boaz

is see this a lot. the left doesn't have to admit anything. please call your congress persons and ask them to draw up articles of impeachment. it's that simple.

George W, Bush MADE JOKES about not finding WMD. Hey, if you won't believe even him, then you're just crazy.

I just saw a news report last night that stated many people are worried that the ISIS well break into sadam's chemecial mfg facility and get some nerve gas. Wasn't Cheney right that sadam did have chemical weapons?

Saddam's been dead for a decade. There is no longer a "Saddam's" chemical manufacturing facility. But keep repeating the name "Saddam" if that's what helps you wet your pants in fear.

So you're saying Megyn Kelley is wrong?

"all we know is that we didn't find any."

Not true, we know that the invasion took place only days before the weapons inspectors were scheduled to make their report, almost as if Bush/Cheney & Co. didn't want to hear anything that might derail their invasion.

Almost? You mean exactly. The Big Lie was very well orchestrated and maintained until it was too late to stop.

Goebbels would be proud.

Cheney and Bush made Americans into suckers and fools and they need to be reminded by fellow Republicans that are weary of being held as partisan saps.

There was nothing wrong about it. They went in to steal the oil, and that was what they did. The entire political establishment knew what was going on and lied. They still are lying.

There is no difference between the parties.

None what so ever.

When it comes to big economic issues you are more or less right.
the gap between the rich and the poor increased under Clinton the gap between the rich and the poor increased under Bush the gap between the rich and the poor increased under Obama.
the middle class has been decreasing since the late 70s.

The entire thing is political theatre for the sheeple.

They are ALL liars.

For those who blame the Democrats for voting for the Iraq resolution, remember, most opposed it. House Democrats voted against the measure 126 to 82. But 215 Republicans voted for it, and only 6 against. In the Senate, a majority of Democrats voted for the resolution, 29, but 21 voted against. I think one Republican voted against. Overall, Democrats voted against the resolution, while Republicans were overwhelmingly in favor. But whatever the party, all relied on intelligence from the White House.
