Huffington Post’s Huff ‘n Puff extreme Left Wing marionettes Alyona Minkovski and Authur Delaney gleefully mis-reporting on the Huffington Post about Fox Networks Megyn Kelly’s brief questioning of former Vice-President Dick Cheney, -was surpassed only by the almost hostile questioning of Cheney by Megyn Kelly.
Dick Cheney wrote about President Obama in the Wall Street Journal: “Rarely has a U.S. President been so wrong about so much at the expense of so many.”
Megyn extemporized then asked:
“Time and time again, history has proven that you got it wrong as well in Iraq, sir. You said there was no doubt Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction. You said we would be greeted as liberators. You said the insurgency was in its last throes back in 2005, and you said that after our intervention, extremists would have to ‘rethink their strategy of jihad.’ Now, with almost a trillion dollars spent there, with almost 4,500 American lives lost there, what do you say to those who say you were so wrong about so much at the expense of so many?”
Cheney answered that he disagreed.
Huffing Post got it wrong when they reported Cheney can’t disagree with his own past comments.
So what is it that Cheney got wrong? He disagreed with Kelly that he got it wrong about the invasion of Iraq.
Unfortunately for Cheney, Megyn Kelly’s long lead-in was too damaging to Cheney and Cheney’s off-the-cuff response wasn’t long enough to counter the damage.
Proof that invading Iraq was the right thing to do is the current events in Iraq where ISIS has conquered about a third of Iraq and are near Baghdad itself.
Even President Obama who made the colossal mistake of withdrawing American Military, the withdrawal causing the rise of ISIS.
Generals Petraus and McFarland said in effect that the 20,000 Americans still in Iraq are in danger from the Shiite’s/ Iranians and Sunni/al Qaeda.
No, it’s not WWIII but too many people are being uselessly murdered.
