1994: Dick Cheney Predicts the Disaster of Toppling Saddam Hussein
A constant right-wing refrain to peace folk is that no one could have predicted how big a mess invading Iraq would cause. The other refrain is that “everyone” thought Hussein really had weapons of mass destruction. I have pointed out repeatedly that both these refrains are false. Scott Ritter, the highly decorated U.S. Marine who was chief weapons inspector in Iraq during the ’90s repeatedly said there were no WMDs (the mainstream media still hasn’t apologized for all the names it called him–for being RIGHT) as did several international security agencies, retired CIA analysts, the Center for Defense Information, the Center for Peace and Security Studies, etc. Many, many people and groups also predicted the quagmire that would come in toppling Saddam Hussein.
Apparently, one of those who predicted that as early as 1994 was: Dick Cheney. And conservatives wonder why I constantly claim that this man and his “boss” need to be impeached and indicted for starting a war on false pretenses and deceiving the American people and Congress (although Congress has much less excuse). The evidence is clear. Why is this man still out of jail?
