Cheney: Stop Complaining About My Iraq War Claims

Speaking to Jonathan Karl on ABC's "This Week," Dick Cheney dismissed criticisms of his past misconceived claims about the war in Iraq. Karl cited Cheney's statements about the "benefits to the region," being "greeted as liberators" and "the last throes...of the insurgency." Considering Rand Paul's criticism that "those clamoring for military action now are the same people who made every false assumption imaginable about the cost, challenge and purpose of the Iraq War," Cheney said, "I was a strong supporter then of going into Iraq, I'm a strong supporter now. Everybody knows what my position is. There's nothing to be argued about there. But if we spend our time debating what happened 11 or 12 years ago, we're going to miss the threat that is growing and that we do face. Rand Paul, with all due respect, is basically an isolationist. He doesn't believe we ought to be involved in that part of the world." Watch Cheney tell us to stop talking about his deadly errors and to get set for more military invasions:

Cheney could be the source of dozens of case studies in a textbook entitled "Effective Sociopathy", imho.
