Dick Cheney: Hillary Should be ‘Held Accountable’ for Benghazi Attacks (Irony Alert)

Irony alert, code blue.

Dick Cheney, the man behind the curtain during the 9/11 attacks, the Afghanistan War, the Iraq War, and a laundry list of other horrific events that cost tens of thousands of Americans their lives, yet was never held accountable for any of it, says that Hillary Clinton needs to be held accountable for the four American lives lost in the Benghazi attack.

Appearing on Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace, the former veep was asked whether Clinton “did anything wrong” and should be “held responsible for the events surrounding that attack.”

Cheney replied “she was secretary of state at the time that it happened. She was one of the first in Washington to know about it. I think she clearly bears responsibility for whatever the State Department did or didn’t do with respect to that crisis.”

He continued, saying “I do think it’s a major issue. I don’t think we’ve heard the last of it yet, and I expect that she will be held accountable during the course of the campaign.”

Meanwhile, his wife Lynne piled on, doubling down on her accusation that Clinton conspired with Vanity Fair to publish an article by Monica Lewinsky so that it wouldn’t come up during the 2016 race for the White House.

Mrs. Cheney said “I was really paying the Clintons a large compliment. I was saying how clever they are politically. And it seemed to me, if you had something that might come up during the campaign that would be damaging, it was very smart to get it out of the way early. So, that’s my case, Chris, and I’m staying with it.”

    I wonder what this couples’ conversations in the quiet of the evening involve? Together they can sure come up with some seriously far fetched stories that could only sound reasonable if there was no intelligent person in the room with them, letting them know that they have some pretty wacky observations. Cheney robbed the US Treasury and racked up the US credit cards beyond the max when he and Bush left office. Lynne is enjoying the perks that come with the thefts. They both think they’re “entitled” Please, never a Cheney again, ever!!!

    So Mrs. Cheney is delusional and buys into all kinds of wacko conspiracy theories. Mr. Cheney seems to forget about the 13 different attacks on US compounds, consulates and embassies that occurred during the Geoerge Bush reign. How many Americans were killed in those attacks? When will the Bush Secy of State be held responsible for those attacks. I think we should go one better and hold Bush and Cheney accountable for all of the lives lost in Iraq and Afghanistan resulting from a MADE UP, bogus, bald-faced lie. I believe Cheney knew exactly what was going on. The second year of the actions in the middle east the number of Americans killed there doubled from the previous year and the stock in Cheney’s Halliburton doubled in value. Seems like the war was good for Cheney’s pocket.
