Dick Cheney never met a problem whose failure to solve was due to the ineptness of other people. Most historical accounts dealing with the invasion of Iraq in 2003 cite his major role in pushing President Bush to give the OK. But, alas, we are in 2011, and as Dick recalls the entire invasion, its failure was due to the weak willed woman called Condoleezza Rice and that guy in the State Department named Colin Powell.
Rich is furious at being blamed and charged with providing President Bush incorrect information. “you can talk about policy differences without suggesting that your colleague somehow misled the president. I don’t appreciate the attack on my integrity.” Listen to this whining woman. We all know Dick Cheney opposed war in Iraq but how could he prevent Powell and Rice from misleading the president?
Colin Powell reminded Cheney that in August, 2002 he warned the president trhat if he pursued the idea of invading Iraq, “if you break it, you own it.”
