Oddly, Dick Cheney gets something right about Iraq, although it was fifteen years ago.

We have seen footage like this before. This past summer a video from 1994 was unearthed on CSPAN showing Dick Cheney, then a respected former Secretary of Defense, instead of evil incarnate, where he calmly laid out why an invasion of Iraq would be a quagmire. Still, I think it's worthwhile to keep showing this footage when it comes to light because it's just so startling how much hubris and unmitigated gall the tragic events of 9/11 provided the entire Bush administration and Dick Cheney in particular. Naturally if this video, like the '94 one, becomes a big hit on YouTube and gets national exposure the Right will fall back on their favorite "that was then, this is now" argument. But the situation on the ground in Iraq didn't change after 9/11 so Cheney's analysis fifteen years ago does make sense. Check out the video to your right for more.
