Cheney and the others are millionaires who made even more millions off exploiting America.
    Yeah they do. They send young Americans off to fight wars for them so their buddies can get rich, but when our soldiers come back broken or needing care; they ain't no where to be found. Sickening really.

    As with Hines VA Hospital in the Chicago suburbs in 2008-
    Where elderly Veterans were wheel-chaired in the hallways with food pocketed-
    Due to the lack of beds so sorely needed by Iraqi Veterans as well as lack of medical personnel then-

    Yet we still haven't passed the VA bill-
    Nothing short of a GI-type bill to pay for Med school--
    where students would do internships for the VA and work at least five years for the VA as a Doctor/Nurse -
    Physics is Phun

Is Rand Paul a mainstream Republican, or is he a fringe crazy?

    The Paul's positions on Foreign policy are as twisted as the far lefts position.

    oh, and Halliburtons first " No Bid " contract " was given to them by the Clinton administration when he needed a diversion from the Cigar incident .

It was well documented Saddam was affording the terrorists training camps inside Iraq. And the threat of chemical weapons and arms getting into the hands of terrorists was real and still is. Hell that despot used chemical weapons on his own people for crying outloud. How quickly people forget the number of soldiers and innocent Afghanis were lost or maimed due to suicide bombers? It is why when Bush took it to Congress they voted not once but twice an overwhelming majority of Democrats and Republicans to invade as a preventative measure. Were there miscalculations and mistakes made? Hell yes. You don't have to agree with any of it. It is real easy to be an armchair quarterback. But the reality we live today is during the last six years Obama has been weak on fighting terror while making false claims that we had decimated Al Qaeda. Al Qaeda has been emboldened and the proof is Libya, Egypt, Nigeria, Syria, Yemen and Iraq is about to collapse. All this going on while we have thousands of troops still left in Afghanistan. Their threats have never stopped that they are coming for us. And Obama, his idea of security is a very porous border while spying on all citizens. Nothing spells feckless fail like the Boston Marathon bombers when it comes to this administration dropping the ball. Even Russia warned Obama's intelligence team about the Tsarnaev brother long before the attack. Terrorism shouldn't be a partisan issue. We can disagree on how to fight it but damit if what has been done the last six years isn't working, it's time for a reality check. And at the very friggin least the *))^^%& borders should be well secured!
    The US CIA funded and armed OBL and the al Qeda. The US brought al Qeda into Iraq. Saddam didn't allow them. He didn't train them. Your information must be from a huge wellspring of misinformation. The war on terror is a joke and is just to make profits for the MIC. They always need a war. More people drowned in bathtubs than died by terrorism in the USA last year. Get your priorities real.

    the US did not bring Al Qaeda into Iraq. That is false. Even the documents recovered at the time of invasion revealed THE FORMER IRAQI REGIME OF Saddam Hussein trained thousands of radical Islamic terrorists from the region at camps in Iraq over the four years immediately preceding the U.S. invasion, according to documents and photographs recovered by the U.S. military in postwar Iraq. The existence and character of these documents has been confirmed by multiple U.S. government officials.

    Up to the invasion, intelligence revealed secret training took place primarily at three camps--in Samarra, Ramadi, and Salman Pak and was directed by elite Iraqi military units. Many of the fighters were drawn from terrorist groups in northern Africa with close ties to al Qaeda, chief among them Algeria's GSPC and the Sudanese Islamic Army. Some 2,000 terrorists were trained at these Iraqi camps each year from 1999 to 2002, putting the total number at or above 8,000 according to the documented information retrieved

    The US military followed up with seeking out these location and videotaped what they discovered inside the classrooms at these sites.



    This isn't something you would find reported at CNN or the Huffington Post, MSNBC or the Nation or MSM in general. It would interfere with the mantra that Bush lied and thousands died. But the evidence in documents recovered matched intelligence, as well as testimonies of Iraqis ... it's your choice to believe or not.

    I love how you get "Bush isn't President anymore" from the same people who talk about Bill Clinton.

    BTW, he's not President anymore either. Just thought I'd point that out.

    How many died in 200l?
    And with enough people sharing your attitude, no doubt it will be allowed to happen again. And who you going to point the blame at then?

    When documentation was found inside Iraq to support the claims of multiple international intelligence groups verifiying that Saddam was running terrorist camps.
    When the Iraqi people also gave testimony to it
    When the locations in question proved such facilities existed how is that drinking kool aid? To ignore such evidence would be the kool aid drinker
