CIA head suggests Cheney hoping for terrorist attack

dick-cheneyCNN) — Dick Cheney’s recent criticism of the Obama administration’s national security policies suggests the former vice president is almost “wishing” panettathe United States gets hit with another terrorist attack, according to CIA Director Leon Panetta.

… Panetta says Cheney’s wide range of recent criticisms of Obama — including the decision to close the detention center at Guantanamo Bay in Cuba — show the ex-vice president “smells some blood in the water on the national security issue.”

“It’s almost, a little bit, gallows politics,” said Panetta. “When you read behind it, it’s almost as if he’s wishing that this country would be attacked again, in order to make his point.”

In a statement provided to CNN, Cheney said, “I hope my old friend Leon was misquoted.”

Mr Cheney, the damage reports are still coming in for homeland crimes that happened on your watch.  You were found to be more consumed with demonizing your enemies and perfecting ways to destroy them, than to take responsibility for the damage you cause to your own country.  How dare you attack a tactic that could acheive similar results without the wanton destruction you seem to enjoy.  You don’t even take responsibility for the casualties coming home.  You prefer to treat returning veterans like expendable components to your war machine.  After all, why worry about government provided resources when you can have that same government pay your buddies millions of dollars to do the same thing without accountability.  You are the poster boy for Homegrown Terrorist.  The body count that follows you is ongoing.  You say you love your country.  What country do you thing you live in?  Accountability was provided in the original US Constitution, and you have treated that like toilet paper.

    Yeah, but there’s not a lot of weight being thrown behind Panetta’s effort to call Cheney out. I would just love to see a good old bar room brawl over this. But, alas, moderation does not permit retaliation beyond ‘pooh pooh on you’. Leave it to the NeoPubs to take another swing below the belt. I would endorse a little side trip down indictment lane.
