Dick Cheney's Foreign Policy
This administration has gone from not being able to name mistakes to not being able to shut up about them. What the hell, they won, right? They can say anything. George Bush finally allowed that "Bring 'em on," and "dead or alive," weren't, what our therapist calls, "helpful." And while Condi Rice wouldn't say Bush botched Iraq she did say some things hadn't gone well. Not just her hair! But, whoa: Dick Cheney really drooped his pants. "I think the hundreds of thousands of people who were slaughtered at the time, including anybody who had the gumption to stand up and challenge [Saddam], made the situation tougher than I would have thought," he said on "The Don Imus Show" this morning. "I would chalk that one up as a miscalculation, where I thought things would have recovered more quickly." Some of McCain's candor must have rubbed off! But wait, wait. What kind of an admission is that, exactly? The insurgency is Saddam's fault? If only we could invade again. . .
