Cheney Says Obama "Dithering" On Afganastan
Cheney's dithering comment comes after he and his puppet Bush allowed Afghanistan to spiral out of control by pulling American troops out of that country to fight their war of choice in Iraq. This after Gen. David McKiernan's Troop Requests Just Sit on Bush White House Desks for more than eight months with no response. How does he the balls to insult anyone. Cheney blatherd this garbage in front of a friendly partizen crowd during a speech at the Center for Security Policy where he was to recieve an award with longtime companion Scooter Libby. White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs fired back at Cheney, saying, "What Vice President Cheney calls 'dithering,' President Obama calls his solemn responsibility to the men and women in uniform and to the American public." In addition retired General Paul Eaton says of Cheney "The record is clear: 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." So in conclusion, Cheney belives it is his place to tell President Obama how to win the war in Afghanistan after he had 7 years to do so himself and failed miserably... If I were Barak I'd take a pass.
