Rand Paul was asked to comment on Meet The Press, about Dick Cheney's recent ridiculous op-ed in the WSJ on Obama and Iraq. He flipped the question on its head.
June 22, 2014

Scarce put this media up yesterday, but I wanted to highlight it today as well.

Dick Cheney and his daughter wrote a horrid article in the WSJ called the Collapsing Obama Doctrine. Nothing has collapsed more in our lifetime than the Bush/Cheney foreign policy doctrine that has turned the world on its head and thrown the U.S. in a horrendous tailspin. Rand Paul joined meet The Press, and was asked to comment on Dick Cheney's ridiculous words.

Scarce:

When asked by the completely useless David Gregory for an upcoming segment on 'Meet the Press' to respond to Dick Cheney's charge that Barack Obama was somehow responsible for the current chaos in Iraq, Rand Paul turned the question around against Dick Cheney:

“I think the same questions could be asked of those who supported the Iraq War. You know, were they right in their predictions? Were there weapons of mass destruction there? That’s what the war was sold on. Was democracy easily achievable? Was the war won in 2005, when many of these people said it was won?

They didn’t really, I think, understand the civil war that would break out.” Adding, “And what’s going on now — I don’t blame on President Obama,” he said. “Has he really got the solution? Maybe there is no solution. But I do blame the Iraq War on the chaos that is in the Middle East."

History tells us that the lying warmongers were wrong on every count and we are still paying a price on those lies.

Can you help us out?
