On the Things He Knew Then

In 1994 a former government official articulated a number of reasons why invading Iraq was a very bad idea.

  • Can’t secure the country.
  • Can’t hold Baghdad.
  • Unsettle the region.
  • It would be an occupation.
  • It would be a mess.

This former government official’s name?

Dick Cheney.

Currently the Vice President of the United States. And one of the staunchest champions of the Iraq War in the government.

Maybe Cheney’s suffering pump brain from one of his heart attacks. Or maybe he’s an opportunist of the worst kind.

Either way, in 1994 he talked sense, while eight years later he’d lost all reason.

Can we have the 1994 Dick Cheney back? Please?
