Stuff It Dick (Cheney)!



Your Daily Dose of BuzzFlash at Truthout, via my pal Mark Karlin:

"Everytime Dick Cheney laughs, an angel gets stabbed in the back," Jon Stewart declared the other night in a take down of Dick Cheney.

Cheney, whose vampire heart is still beating due to a defibrillator he has strapped to his body, recently took to the airwaves to trash President Obama's foreign policy, including the recent appointment of John Brennan to head the CIA, denouncing him as a "yes man" to Obama.  Now, Truthout at BuzzFlash has many objections to Brennan's nomination, starting with his ownership of the infamous Obama administration "kill list."  But given that Brennan held senior intelligence positions in both the White House and CIA under the Bush/Cheney administration, Cheney is basically denouncing his own stewardship on intelligence matters.  [...]

Cheney – along with Donald "Known Unknown" Rumsfeld -- who co-quarterbacked a campaign of deception to lead us into the disastrous and deadly Iraq War. [...]

As a symbol of how destructive Cheney was to the national interest, [Valerie] Plame specialized in reducing the risks of rogue nations obtaining nuclear weapons or materials.  In short, Cheney and his loyalists (and Karl Rove escaped indictment for the Plame leak by a hair) seriously compromised a US intelligence effort to reduce the spread of nuclear weapons and material just after justifying a calamitous invasion of Iraq with the chief untruthful assertion that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction that didn't exist.

Isn't it long past time to just say, "Stuff it Dick!"
