UPDATE: SCROLL DOWN FOR MORE VIDEO CLIPS. If you thought things were already prickly between
Darth Dick Cheney and Senator Rand Paul, prepare yourself. Senator Paul isn’t backing down and he’s rubbing some Iranian salt in his and all the other neocons wounds. Asked if former vice president, Dick Cheney is a credible critic of President Obama on Iraq, Sen. Paul responded to Meet the (Neocon) Press,
“I think the same questions could be asked of those who supported the Iraq War. You know, were they right in their predictions? Were there weapons of mass destruction there? Was the war won in 2005, when many of those people said it was won? But I do blame those who are for the Iraq War for emboldening Iran…”
CLIP 2: “Where’s the ‘Clear-cut American Interest’ in Fighting ISIS?”
That was just a sample of the full interview which will air in full on Sunday.
Here’s Politico’s take: Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) wants to turn the tables on those who are questioning President Barack Obama’s handling of the draw down of troops in Iraq.
Instead of placing blame on the president, Paul suggested that blame for the unrest in the Middle East can be placed elsewhere.
“I don’t blame President Obama,” Paul said. “Has he really got the solution? Maybe there is no solution. But I do blame those who are for the Iraq War for emboldening Iran…” (Ouch, that’s gotta hurt!)
Sen. Paul has faced these dark forces before back in his primary fight against Dick Cheney endorsed Trey Grayson in 2010. Contains actual audio from attack ads.
