The Nobel audacity prize goes to Cheney

Future of Freedom Foundation
by Jacob G. Hornberger


If there were a Nobel Audacity Prize, former Vice-President Dick Cheney would deserve to win it, hands-down. This guy is unbelievable. He’s taking President Obama to task for ‘dithering’ by not immediately sending 40,000 more troops to Afghanistan. So, here’s a guy who, along with President Bush, had 7 years to straighten things out in Afghanistan. For all practical purposes, nothing tied their hands — not the Constitution (e.g., the declaration of war requirement), not the Congress, not the courts, and not the UN. Here was omnipotent government in action...

Why Is Anyone Still Listening to Cheney? - Former President George W. Bush has had the good grace to go into seclusion and not stand on the sidelines second-guessing every move made by his successor. Cheney, by contrast, has taken it upon himself to serve as the chief critic of the Obama administration and chief defender of the Bush administration, even if it requires rewriting history.



A Third Surge? The Troops Need a Smarter Vision

Fareed Zakaria: "Dick Cheney has accused Barack Obama of 'dithering' over Afghanistan. I suppose if the president were to quickly invade a country on the basis of half-baked intelligence, that would demonstrate his courage and decisiveness to Mr. Cheney."

More Spending on Afghan War Could Hurt the Dollar

David R. Francis, The Christian Science Monitor: "Could an expanded war in Afghanistan be the costly straw that breaks the dollar's back, exacerbating already high concerns around the world over its value and damaging its central role in global commerce?"

Obama's AfPak War: "It's the Mission, Creep"

Steve Weissman, Truthout: "Dick Cheney and his neoconservative fringe are showing true gall and no grit in accusing President Obama of 'dithering' and 'waffling' on Afghanistan. They are, after all, the deep thinkers who rushed the Bush administration into Iraq, which diverted troops and other resources from their earlier mission to defeat the Afghan Taliban and catch or kill Osama bin Laden. Still, the shameless critics raise an intriguing question. Why has the president taken so much time to announce how many more troops he will send?"
