Dick from 1994 meets Dick from 2003

In an interview after the first Iraq War (1990-1991), now VP Dick Cheney and then Secretary of defense reasons why the US did not topple Saddam Hussein’s regime. Now, I need not say any more.  It is all here for watching. The funny thing about it is Stephen Hays, the “official biographer” of Dick Cheney comes on the Jon Stewert Show and says, yeah 9/11 changed everything.  Did it change the ethnic composition of Iraq; did it change the deep-seated ethnic animosities between Sunni, Shia, and Kurd; did it change the fact that Iran a longtime regional rival will want to interfere in Iraq’s business; did we find weapons of mass destruction in Iraq?  Well, you answer the question for yourself.
