Thom Hartmann: Dick Cheney confirms he is a war criminal

Thom plus logo

Draft dodger Dick Cheney has a new book coming out. The man with no pulse is trying to set the record straight about his time in the White House as Vice President - and according to excerpts from the book entitled, "My Time" - which is set to be released next week - Cheney confirms what we all suspected - that he really is that evil. Cheney goes after former Secretary of State Colin Powell for opposing the Iraq War - then rips into Condoleezza Rice - calling her "naïve" for trying to negotiate with the North Koreans.

I guess Cheney would have preferred just bombing them. Cheney, who got five deferments from serving in Vietnam, even admits that back in 2007 - he urged President Bush to launch military strikes against a Syrian nuclear site. Luckily - no one else in the White House agreed with Cheney. Cheney then goes on to praise the use of torture - confirming that he is not only a war criminal - but also a proud war criminal. As for Cheney's thoughts on Bush - he praised him as a "strong and resolute" leader. Go figure.

I say as soon as the book hit shelves next Tuesday - it should immediately be entered into evidence in the war crimes trial against the Bush administration.


(Do you think that will happen? Tell us here.)
