Cheney: Still Evil

Here comes the least-liked man in America to let us know that, in the event of a "highly probable" nuclear or biological terrorist attack, it will be Obama's fault for reversing the policies of his administration: "Whether or not they can pull it off depends whether or not we keep in place policies that have allowed us to defeat all further attempts, since 9/11, to launch mass-casualty attacks against the United States.”

I'm calling bullsh*t on Dickie. This is a man whose legacy involves the suspension of constitutional freedoms, torture, and outright deceit to achieve his ends. Why are we listening to this? It's as if he's hoping for an attack so he can justify his appalling behavior. Nota bene that 9/11 was blamed on Bush's predecessor and that further attacks will be blamed on his successor. This is clearly the desperate counternarrative of a failed politician. Let's treat it as such.
