Cheney recently made the stunning statement that it didn’t matter if Iraq had WMD, we were going to invade them anyway. I guess that statement in itself isn’t all that stunning, we in the blogosphere have been saying it for years. It’s just rather surprising to hear him say it out loud.
This from ThinkProgress:
Today on MSNBC’s Hardball, right-wing commentator Frank Gaffney defended Cheney’s remarks, saying that the “real reason” the Bush administration wanted to invade Iraq was because Saddam was a “mortal threat” to the United States.
Yeah, yeah. Same shit, different day. Right?
Wrong. Listen to this:
You heard that right.
My position is that it’s regrettable that any Americans died. It is regrettable that they had to die, but I believe they did have to die.
