9/11, Iraq: Cheney again claims tie
VP attacks Dems for first time since Libby conviction

***

Vice President Dick Cheney . . .
resumed his controversial claims Monday that the war in Iraq is the central front in the worldwide U.S. response to the Sept. 11 attacks.

Cheney linked Iraq and al Qaeda even though post-invasion reports by the Senate Intelligence Committee and the presidential Commission on Intelligence Capabilities found no link between Saddam Hussein and al Qaeda before the U.S.-led invasion on March 19, 2003.

In remarks to the American-Israel Public Affairs Committee, Cheney contended that U.S. Marines face al Qaeda operatives in Anbar province, that the U.S.-Iraqi security crackdown has unmasked al Qaeda car bomb operations in Baghdad and that Osama bin Laden has promised to make Baghdad the capital of a radical Islamic empire reaching from Indonesia to Spain.

"As we get farther away from 9/11, I believe there is a temptation to forget the urgency of the task that came to us that day, and the comprehensive approach that's required to protect this country against an enemy that moves and acts on multiple fronts," Cheney told the annual conference of the pro-Israel group, which interrupted his speech at least 27 times with applause.

"Iraq's relevance to the war on terror simply could not be more plain," Cheney said. He said al Qaeda terrorists have made Iraq the central front in the U.S. war against terrorism.

The U.S. invasion, occupation and counterinsurgency campaign in Iraq over the past four years has claimed the lives of at least 3,193 U.S. soldiers, wounded 23,785 other GIs and cost taxpayers more than $400 billion.

Cheney spoke as part of the Bush administration's public relations offensive to win congressional support for the president's decision to send at least 26,100 additional U.S. combat and support troops to Iraq to try to stem bloodshed in Baghdad and Anbar province.

The administration also seeks congressional approval of an additional $100 billion to finance the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Cheney has long contended that the U.S. invasion of Iraq four years ago this month was justified in part because of suspected ties between Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein and al Qaeda.

But a 148-page report released by the Republican-led Senate Intelligence Committee in September showed that U.S. intelligence agencies disagreed with Bush administration claims of links between Hussein and al Qaeda.

Cheney's hard-hitting remarks represented a symbolic rejoinder to some critics' contention -- and some Democrats' hopes -- that the vice president might be sidelined by the federal felony conviction of Libby last week.

Libby, facing sentencing June 5, ran afoul of a special prosecutor's investigation into an effort by Cheney to smear a prominent anti-Iraq war critic who raised questions about Bush's effort to justify the Iraq invasion with claims that Hussein tried to buy nuclear weapons materials in Africa.

Cheney spoke six days after Libby, his former chief of staff and national security adviser, was convicted for obstruction and false statements.

"When members of Congress pursue an anti-war strategy that's been called slow bleed, they're not supporting the troops, they're undermining them," Cheney declared. "When members of Congress speak not of victory but of time limits, deadlines or other arbitrary measures, they're telling the enemy simply to watch the clock and wait us out."

"So where is the oil going to come from?... The Middle East, with two-thirds of the world's oil and the lowest cost, is still where the prize ultimately lies."

Richard Cheney - Chief Executive Of Halliburton

these guys (and gals) are

these guys (and gals) are completely detached from reality.

So cartoonishly evil he defies parody.

From BuffaloBeast.com:

Dick Cheney

Charges: At the forefront of nearly every administration effort to annihilate the constitution. A true psychopath with only one motivating force; insatiable greed. Insists that we can only remain "free" through torture, spying and secrecy. Bears the crooked ugliness of a man whose entire life has been devoted to a senseless pursuit of power, and whose most effective weapon is a total lack of ethics, or even decorum. So cartoonishly evil he defies parody.

Exhibit A: "I think they’re in the last throes, if you will, of the insurgency."

Sentence: Strapped to chair; eyes removed with melon baller. Nursed back to health. Lips sewn to a rubber hose connecting him to a 500 gallon nutrition shake. Nursed back to health. Fingers, hands, toes, feet, nose and genitals devoured by hungry pigs. Nursed back to health. Legs and arms ground to stubs with belt sander. Nursed back to health. Fitted with earphones that play only Christina Aguilera songs, and left alone to think about what he has done.

 

At least we have the Go To guys

for when the going gets rough. MrEguy, is it really possible to grind down arms and legs with a belt sander. I've only got an orbital one.

Oh, the nauseating irony of it all.

After every nursing session, I can just hear that bastard Dick begging for habeas corpus and his day in court.

Much like Hitler, Cheney is a psychopath who uses concentration

camps like Guantanamo, & wants an un-winnable war like Iraq to continue & even expand to Iran, no matter how many more innocent people will surely die for him.

Translation--"Leave Iraq?

Translation--"Leave Iraq? Fuck you!"

That's what he wants to say...

Impeachment. Accountability. A better world.

Cheney is a...

He needs to remind Bush of the "Script"...




Bush admits that Iraq Had Nothing To Do With 9/11

Hee, hee...

and when was this?

You know, Canada has the CAPACITY to make weapon's of mass destruction...and they're closer, too...

Impeachment. Accountability. A better world.

Was on the 21-Aug-2006...

Canadian WMDs

Yeah we got WMDs, and we ain't ascairt to use 'em either. (Frozen snowballs can really smart.)

Again... often they tell the truth

Our VP said, "As we get farther away from 9/11, I believe there is a temptation to forget the urgency of the task that came to us that day, and the comprehensive approach that's required to protect this country against an enemy that moves and acts on multiple fronts..."

He's right. Let's not let this temptation seduce us into letting the real perpetrators off the hook. Yes, a comprehensive approach. Good point.

And that is definitely true about the enemy usiing multiple fronts, including the media, the courts, the military, congress, NORAD, CIA, you name it.

That's what I was thinking

That's what I was thinking too, when I read that. Add Bush's statement:

"Let us never tolerate outragous conspiracy theories."

And he's right--19 wackos with boxcutters dirrected by an evil mastermind in a cave IS an outragous conspiracy theory!

;-)

Impeachment. Accountability. A better world.

Detached from Reality...

I read this Cheney article in the SF Chronicle just awhile ago, along with an article about trying Guantanamo prisoners for 9/11. And, a letter to the editor about how Pelosi and friends need to understand that a Pax America would indeed be the best for the world......

Ah Ah Ah Ah Ah............I'm falling! My god, its a whole 'nother world out there. How could a newspaper like this exist in SF-is the ghost of Hearst haunting the corridors, sucking the brains out of "journalists" when they come back from Starbucks?

Let's see, 5 years and six months later-will we be sitting here 5 years from now on the blogger commenting about the same stupidity? That Cheney can repeat this lie, knowing he can get away with it, is startling. dc911truth, please, storm the ramparts this Sunday!

Kiss the Ring, Dick

Cheney gives a speech before AIPAC saying the American public will continue to be required to sacrifice their children and treasure forever, if necessary, to kill Israel's enemies and he's "interrupted by applause 27 times".

This is news? Why, because it wasn't a continuous standing ovation?

First Bush is forced to give speeches before troops under orders to behave docilely, and now this from Mr. 7 Deferments.

What's next, a State of the Union exclusively before Halliburton, Lockheed Martin and Exxon-Mobil execs? Why not, it's only one Signing Statement away. I can almost picture them doing the "The Wave".....

Can I see the Bush, "...Nothing!" video above again please?

AND......

....Chaney goes to Saudi Arabia, almost gets shot, comes back, tells AIPAC congressional denial underminds the ?troops?, and Haliburton moves corporate headquarters to Dubai. Somebody DU that bastard.

It's like the movie "Groundhog Day"...

Everyday I wake up and they are still in power.  And, they are still evil. 

And, the MSM still covers Anna Nicole, and wedge issues like gays in the military.

Dick...

Is using his murder of 2,973+ people for all it's worth. Don't like me saying that? Help me get a new investigation, and prove me wrong.
