Former Vice President Dick Cheney‘s memoir, “In My Time: A Personal and Political Memoir,” is out Tuesday, and it’s full of criticism and attacks on his Bush administration colleagues — from describing Condoleezza Rice as “tearfully admitting” he was right on the war in Iraq to revealing private conversations with George W. Bush on the eve of the Iraq war.
He reserves much of his ire for former Secretary of State Colin Powell, and now Powell and his longtime aide and chief of staff, Col. Lawrence Wilkerson, are attempting to set the record straight. In no uncertain terms. Cheney, Wilkerson told ABC News, “was president for all practical purposes for the first term of the Bush administration” and “fears being tried as a war criminal.”
And God willing he will be tried, convicted, and imprisoned in a Yemeni prison for exactly that. It is inexplicable that the Christian George Bush would have such an evil beast as his running mate. And yes, I think Bush is a Christian. But he has never possessed the gift of discernment. Had he, he wouldn’t have involved Cheney in the government at any level. The man is evil incarnate.
