Dick Cheney has been making the rounds of conservative media lately, criticizing the Obama administration for a foreign policy that is, truth be told, not so far removed from the Bush administration’s foreign policy. He’s also blasting the administration for proposing miniscule cuts to the military budget (if they’re actually cuts at all). Major General Paul D. Eaton unloaded on Cheney:
During a phone interview with SiriusXM Progress, Eaton slammed Cheney for his comments considering his role in Iraq.
“Vice President Cheney is one of the architects of the worst foreign policy disaster of the 21st century,” Eaton said. “We’re young, but the decision to attack Iraq, and to do so in such an incompetent manner, does not give him a platform to say anything about the foreign policy under execution today.”
“Vice President Cheney is who he is. It’s unfortunate that he has not followed the guidance and the model of his former boss, President Bush, and gone off quietly to write his memoir,” Eaton also said.
Dick Cheney should drink a big steaming glass of STFU.
