Bill Clinton slams Dick Cheney for “unseemly” criticism of President Obama
Speaking with NBCs David Gregory during an interview that will run in full during this Sundays edition of Meet the Press, former President Bill Clinton argued that there is something unseemly about former Vice President Dick Cheneys willingness to criticize President Obama for the chaos and dysfunction thats still plaguing Iraq.
Asked by Gregory whether he agreed with claims from Cheney and other Republicans that the Obama administration had made the Middle East more unstable and American citizens more unsafe, Clinton emphatically rejected the questions premise, saying, If [the second Bush administration] hadnt gone to war in Iraq none of this would be happening.
Gregory interrupted, asking Clinton if he believed that the civil, sectarian and regional war occurring in Syria was also the fault of Bush and Cheney. Then, asking a slightly different question (perhaps unintentionally) Gregory wondered whether Clinton believed there wouldnt be terrorist actors if the U.S. hadnt invaded and occupied Iraq from 2003 to 2011.
It might be happening in Syria, Clinton responded, but what happened in Syria wouldnt have happened in Iraq.
First Gregory uses a question to repeat complete nonsense and then has to stop the interviewee when they state the blatantly obvious.
and he only played one in the White House, he doesn't know how to behave in his post-vie-presidency. Vile creature.
