During recent interview with David Gregory, Pres. Bill Clinton laughed off Dick Cheney’s suggestion that President Obama is to blame for the strife in Iraq, placing the blame directly at the feet of the former Vice President himself.
When Gregory asked him if Dick Cheney had any credibility, the former president replied, “Well, I believe, you know, if they hadn’t gone to war in Iraq, none of this would be happening.”
Then Gregory inquired about the role of Syrian strife, “Well, it might be happening in Syria, but what happened in Syria wouldn’t have happened in Iraq. Iraq would not have been, in effect, altered as it has been, but Mr. Cheney has been incredibly adroit for the last six years or so attacking the administration for not doing an adequate job of cleaning up the mess that he made. And I think it’s unseemly.”
Kudos to Pres. Clinton for setting the record straight, and not allowing Dick Cheney to rewrite history.
Considering Dick Cheney had full knowledge of his actions, his recent audacity to try to shift the blame is indeed, “unseemly.”
