Watch A Retired Colonel Rip Cheney: He’s An ‘Insane’ War Profiteer Who Won’t Go Away!
After disappearing for nearly a decade, Dick Cheney is back in the spotlight, acting as an expert on Middle East foreign affairs.
Republican Col. Lawrence Wilkerson sat down with Fox New’s Chris Hayes, where he proceeded to describe Cheney as “insane.”
Occupy Democrats reports:
“I have been searching for a single word that would describe Dick Cheney…and I am afraid the only one that I can think of is ‘insanity’. It’s a deliberate, it’s a methodical, it’s a lucid, often lucid insanity. But it is insanity nonetheless. He can’t recognize reality. He can’t recognize the truth. The good thing Chris, for this country is that Independents, Republicans, and Democrats wish he would just go away now. He has almost no influence. You saw the influence he has virtually by numbers. Those at the AEI (the American Enterprise Institute, a neoconservative think tank) today that listened to his speech, that’s about it.”
Wilkerson, a Vietnam War veteran, then considers other possible motives, and rightfully draws back to Cheney’s personal wealth: “Cheney is a millionaire now…So maybe I am assuming his insanity and maybe I am wrong. Maybe he sees this as a way, as a route to success and it turned out to be profitable. His personal finances now are quite well established. He is a multi-millionaire. This is a man who in 1998, Chris, said most forcefully as CEO of Halliburton, that sanctions were not working, that they wouldn’t work unless they were comprehensive and international. And he wanted to do deals with Iran. And so he was bashing sanctions up one wall and down the other. This is a man who’s lost his mind.”
