The long, sorry career of an unindicted co-president

James Carroll reminds us that Cheney has been dicking us since days of Tricky Dicky:

At world-shaping moments across a generation, Cheney reacted with an instinctive, This is war!

He helped turn the War on Poverty into a war on the poor.

He helped keep the Cold War going longer than it had to, and when it ended (because of initiatives taken by the other side), Cheney refused to believe it. To keep the US war machine up and running, he found a new justification just in time.

With Gulf War I, Cheney ignited Osama bin Laden's burning

purpose. Responding to 9/11, Cheney fulfilled bin Laden's purpose by joining him in the war-of-civilizations.

Iraq, therefore (including the prewar deceit for which Scooter Libby takes the fall), is simply the last link in the chain of disaster which is the public career of Richard Cheney.
