Cheney, Probably Deserves a Rebuke

He's out setting the political stage for the GOP, for "tough guys", to reap a political benefit if sensible policies fail.

The Dems ought not to take that kind of positioning lightly. We're at over a $1 trillion dollars in debts to the next generation because of "though guys" who make decisions that weren't thought through.

Meanwhile, I wonder what the public is making of this big push into Helmand. Isn't it a testimony to the masterful way that Bush-Cheney kept status a national secret, so that most Americans are probably unaware that there were huge portions of territory 'under Taliban control'.

By comparison, we can remember McCain demanding and answer to "Who is in control of Ramadi?" We have nothing similar for the unattended mess that Bush-Cheney-Rumsfeld let drag on in Afghanistan.

For the price of Bush-Cheney's understaffed, under-resourced, mis-conceptualized war in Afghanistan, visit icasualties.org.
