    Cheney was right, they didn't need 600,000 troops to take Iraq. And now you are critizing them for not surging faster!? Ridiculous.

    I do think Afghanistan has been the forgotten war, but that is because it is very difficult to win there.

    So you're limiting the character assassination to Halliburton? I was talking about the Darth Vader comments.

    Re: Cheney: Stop ‘dithering’ on Afghanistan troops

    cheney, like mcchrystal and gates, only goes public with his disagreements after obama betrays private confidences

    mcchrystal sent the prez a SECRET ASSESSMENT on august 1

    obama blitzed five sunday talks on september 20 and LIED, saying he was still awaiting the top to bottom review he was sitting on and he hadn't yet been asked for reinforcements

    BOB WOODWARD exposed the president's prevarications the NEXT DAY when he leaked the general's report in the post

    cheney/bush was asked as a courtesy to do a comprehensive study of all goings on pertaining to afghanistan and secret it on the sly to the incoming admin

    indeed, obama used cheney's data as the basis for his entire "new, comprehensive strategy" for afghanistan announced on march 27

    but on last sunday's cnn rahm the ram complained his team was left in the dark by the previous white house and had to "start from scratch"

    it is honor which brings darth veep out of his cave

    bush, meanwhile, is the perfect exemplar of how an ex president should conduct himself

    perhaps not the greatest chief exec we've ever had, the man has class in defeat america hasn't seen since 41

    afghanistan is KILLING this president

    afghanistan is obama's war, because of the way he campaigned so hard on the topic

    it is what it is

    whenever cheney breaks silence, obama's butt gets badly bruised

    when's the last time you heard anyone mention the prosecution of the cia?

    When Cheney is involved, it's best to sit down quietly and listen carefully and intently to what he has to say. Listen to his plans and what he thinks we should do. Then do the opposite.

    Also, I think he should be in jail.

    If you have to ask that, you don't pay attention to the government.
