Obama putting the country at risk, warns war criminal

The recently-dethroned war criminal Dick Cheney warns that Obama is threatening the country with another terrorist attack by shutting down the torture and curtailment of domestic civil liberty programs that he and the former president created. Cheney said he fears President Obama will put the county at risk

""When we get people who are more concerned about reading the rights to an Al Qaeda terrorist than they are with protecting the United States against people who are absolutely committed to do anything they can to kill Americans, then I worry," he told the Web site.

The outlook for terrorism couldn't be more grim to Cheney, Politico.com Editor-in-Chief John Harris described to FOX News on Wednesday. Cheney -- who fervently supports the operations at Guantanamo Bay prison and the use of aggressive interrogation techniques -- told Politico that the detention center is "a necessary facility" running a "first class program."

"If it hadn't been for what we did with respect to the terrorist surveillance program, or enhanced interrogation techniques for high-value detainees, the Patriot Act, and so forth then we would have been attacked again," he said. "Those policies we put in place, in my opinion, were absolutely crucial to getting us through the last seven-plus years without a major-casualty attack on the U.S."

No votes yet

this coming from an ignorant monster that screwed California into rolling blackouts while in collusion with Ken Lay and those Enron folks.

Yeah, some "Energy Summit" while the Dick® rolls in his cash.


again. YOu want terrorists coddled . Obama has kept the Cheney policies of listening in to communications and of outsourcing torture- extradition to foreign countries. Do you approve of this ? Obama does !

If by some miraculous leap of logic we are able to grant your presumption of Cheney's guilt of being a "war criminal" who has been tried and convicted by your relativistic moral and legal standards, then what difference does it make whether Cheney is a war criminal (BTW, no longer in office) ?

What we have now is a socialist, "economic criminal" currently occupying the White House.

If Obama's stimulus goes through (regardless if it's consitutional or not), it will do more harm to Americans and their wallets than Cheney's so-called war crimes against non-Americans who have been caught engaging in acts of terror against the U.S. and its citizens.

If Obama's stimulus goes through (regardless if it's consitutional or not), it will do more harm to Americans and their wallet

Only if the conservatives strip the bill of the needed recovery and get to add more tax cuts, which is looking more likely.

Pink Slip

I didn't get past the first sentence of this article. When I read the phrase "war criminal", I knew I wasn't reading the analysis or thoughts of a rational person.

Pink Slip: The GOP is giving the American people what they want which is a stimulus package for the economy (if there really is such a thing) while eliminating the unrealized dreams of liberal policy expansion funded in this bill. Check out the poll on CNN's website -- hardly a bastion of right wing thinking. There viewers view the Republican cuts as either entirely correct or mostly correct by a wide majority.

Smoking cessation? Birth control? Tell me how the expansion of these programs creates jobs.

Brian, you obviously haven't read or don't know what has been going on in this country for the past eight years. Have you been asleep for eight years? To wit: torture, preventive war, renditions, detention of citizens, illegal wiretapping, etc. etc. Irrational? Wake up!

did not see the OVERWHELMING vote, in both houses of Congress, APPROVING ,the use of force.!! A little , inconvenient ,fact , congenital LIARS, always leave out of the lies they spit out !!

I can't comment on that poll Brian, because I haven't seen it. What I do know is that Americans voted against the Republicans for the last 3 elections. I don't think most are clinging to their "ideas" for the economy. I think what has happened it the GOP was quick to get their message out on the recovery plan, labeling it as pork-laden. It's not until just recently that the Democrats have countered that what the GOP considers pork amounts to less than 1% of the total cost of the bill.

Pink Slip

Wonderful! Now we'll be both bereft of our Constitutional rights and impoverished, too. I have no dog in the race. Both parties are equally corrupt. But, at least, this administration SEEMS to be trying to right the wrongs of the previous one regarding an illegal war. We'll see.

In Victor Davis Hanson's article, he shows just exactly how Obama "SEEMS to be trying to right the wrongs of the previous [administration]."

Nice article, JayOtt. Thanks for the post.

is all this socialist has. Since, 9 / 11/ 01, we have done quite well economically, until, the home lending bubble BURST. With 5 million home loans to illegal aliens, with no money down for home loans, with income now allowed such as welfare , alimony , disability ,etc., money being counted as INCOME allowed...no wonder everyone NOT ever eligible for home loans NOW, got them. A lady in St Louis, on the news stated she had $1200 / monthly income , where as , her home loan was for $900 / month ?! When asked ,'can you afford this', she answered in the affirmative ??! That decision , to say YES, and to live then on $10 / day , for EVERYTHING...she signed the loan papers ACCEPTING ??!! HOW IN GODS', NAME IS THAT G.W.'s FAULT !!?? STUPIDITY , is contagious in the party of BERNIE MADOFF !!! " I think this is the case where Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae, are fundamentally SOUND. They're not in danger of going under,I think they are in good shape going forward", Barney Fwank, House Financial Services Committee Chairman.... JULY 14, 2008 !!!!!!!!!!! Two months later...these two GIANT mortgage lenders went belly up, and then needed $100 BILLION ....EACH !!! GET YOUR LIES TOGETHER MAN, not all bloggers here are as STUPID as _ _ _ !!!

I still hope that The Anointed One will work to nullify the misnamed Patriot Act, but I'm beginning to think that it is possible that there is no Santa Claus after all.

President Obama has inherited a mess. The economy is in a shambles and foreign relations are as hot as ever. Obama Bin Missin' is still at large and operating with the blessing of the Muslim world.

The Anointed One promised to close the Guantanamo Bay detention camp during his campaign. Now that he's moved into the White House he's started to smile and mumble - Himself will close the detention center as promised, but perhaps not just yet. There's so much to do, you see.

Then there's there's his promise to cap the salaries of top executives at $500,000 (five hundred thousand, or one half million dollars) in the companies that receive bail out money - but continue reading the fine print, because this isn't a promise or a fact. Those salary caps will only affect some executives, if they qualify somehow... mumble, mumble.

But it gets better, and given time it will get better than ever. Not only is the US going farther into debt to rescue the economy, and not only are jobs still being sent overseas, and illegals are still in the country, but when it becomes apparent that the economic stimulus package isn't working The Anointed One will be called on to do something, even if it's wrong. That's when the Anti-Freedom Act will be passed (it's for the children!) and the jack booted thugs will begin house to house searches for contraband - firearms, drugs, subversive literature, you name it. Cigarettes come to mind. The moon bat sheep will all bleat in unison that it's for our own good, to keep us safe.

I think I'll go out with my bible in one hand and my .45 in the other. Smoking.

53 million citizens of this planet from torture, tyranny and, death, more people freed ,than all of WW II and, this treasonous running dog doesn't see it !! AMAZING , how the blind hatred of socialists, even effects their fabrication of lies, that Al-Qaeda also uses !! With friends like Al-Qaeda's... Samir Jassam, a female recruiter of female homicide bombings ,employs a real cool method of enrolling said recruits....she tricks Muslim women into thinking they are going to a job interview, where , they are GANG RAPED by up to 60 men ( prisoners from Abu Graib ), this SHAMES the rape victims into thinking ,'what's there to live for'. So, another easy recruit from the 'mother of all believers', is had. Despicable people you fellow travelers LOVE !!
