Cheney's big defense of his and Bush's incompetence seems to be that they left a "secret report" for Obama, and if he had followed their "advice", we wouldn't be having these problems in Afghanistan. They had 8 years to get things sorted out over there, and instead of solving anything, made it worse through neglect. Their "advice" based on "experience" is worthless, and I completely understand why the current administration says they had to start over in Afghanistan.
Matthew 10:34Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.
If they didn't have a stated comphensive plan then they sure the hell should have seeing though they were warned by several sources of impending attacks withing the US.
If Obama is going to be held to those standards then it only makes sense to apply the same logic to the failures of the Bush/Cheney adminstration on 9-11. Aren't we still in Afghanistan to avenge the 9-11 attacks 6 years later. Having to fight a built up taliban and deal with the setbacks of a corrupt Bush install puppet goverment which led to recent election fraud.
So Obama's responsible for it all 9 months in and Bush and Cheney aren't...really Rev trying to have it both ways is really a losing prospect.
Can't be done.
