Dick Cheney, who has had at least 27 different hearts and at times even walks around hooked up to an electric cord while at home, has done it again. Our esteemed former Vice-President has broken his own record for being an asshole, according to Mother Jones magazine. How a man with one foot in the grave and the other foot on a banana peel could do this is a tribute to this man's fortitude and the billion dollars a day it takes to keep him alive.
that President Barack Obama does not receive a morning intelligence briefing on what is happening around the world. But, before Obama could explain that unlike Darth Vader and his ex-boss "Nukeclearr Bush", he held his briefing later in the afternoon, much like Bill Clinton, Cheney chimed in that, "If President Obama were participating in his intelligence briefings on a regular basis then perhaps he would understand why people are so offended at his efforts to take sole credit for the killing of Osama bin Laden."
Whoa~Tough shot from the old man who has worked for many presidents and is responsible for the deaths of hundreds of thousands of people. I'm sure, since he claims to be a Christian, that the devil will meet him at the door with a big smile on his face.
wrote this about Cheney and Bush's intelligence meetings. Just because you have an intelligence briefing, does not mean you learn from it:
By May 1st, the Central Intelligence Agency told the White House of a report that “a group presently in the United States” was planning a terrorist operation. Weeks later, on June 22, the daily brief reported that Qaeda strikes could be “imminent,” although intelligence suggested the time frame was flexible.
But some in the administration [i.e., Cheney's clique of neo-con nitwits -ed.] considered the warning to be just bluster....In response, the C.I.A. prepared an analysis that all but pleaded with the White House to accept that the danger from Bin Laden was real.
“The U.S. is not the target of a disinformation campaign by Osama Bin Laden,” the daily brief of June 29 read, using the government’s transliteration of Bin Laden’s first name....
On July 1, the brief stated that the operation had been delayed, but “will occur soon.”....
On July 9, at a meeting of the counter-terrorism group, one official suggested that the staff put in for a transfer so that somebody else would be responsible when the attack took place, two people who were there told me in interviews.
....On July 24, Mr. Bush was notified that the attack was still being readied, but that it had been postponed, perhaps by a few months. But the president did not feel the briefings on potential attacks were sufficient, one intelligence official told me, and instead asked for a broader analysis on Al Qaeda, its aspirations and its history. In response, the C.I.A. set to work on the Aug. 6 brief.
August 6, of course, was the infamous daily briefing titled "Bin Laden Determined to Strike in U.S." — the one that prompted George Bush to tell his briefer, "All right. You've covered your ass."
I first took notice of Dick Cheney during the Ford Administration. He was a Hawk then and he's a Hawk now. How many men, women and children have died over his Gollem-like advise to so many different presidents and insiders is unknown. What is known is he "is" an Asshole. He was born an Asshole and will be one even when after he dies, if that's possible. Yes, President Bush signed a bill into law before leaving office making him the biggest "Asshole in the World". You would think Dick Cheney, sick and retired now, would rest on his laurels. But not this Bulldog. He wants to keep the record out of reach forever and I for one, think he's done it. Rush Limbaugh, eat your fucking heart out!
