Take Us Back to 1994!

In July 2007 an old clip of a C-SPAN interview with Vice President Cheney from 1994 surfaced in which he defended the decision not to depose Saddam Hussein during the First Gulf War: "Once you got to Iraq and took it over…then what are you going to put in its place?…It's a quagmire if you go that far and try to take over Iraq."

Cheney then explained, "And the question for the president…was how many additional dead Americans is Saddam worth? Our judgment was, not very many, and I think we got it right."

And on Wednesday of this week we will observe the fifth anniversary of having "gotten it completely wrong" EVERY DAMN DAY of the last five years!!
