Darth Cheney punked out by Gen. Eaton

Obama has a new ally in the war of words that Dick Cheney started after leaving his coffin and running his mouth once again in a speech to the Center for Security Policy.

His name is Gen. Paul Eaton (Ret.), who served more than 30 years in the United States Army from 2003-2004 and oversaw the training of the Iraqi military. He is currently the National Security Network Senior Adviser for the Obama administration.

Today, Gen. Paul Eaton also had a few words for Dick Cheney. His words are clear and need no further elaboration:

The record is clear: Dick Cheney and the Bush administration were incompetent war fighters. They ignored Afghanistan for 7 years with a crude approach to counter-insurgency warfare best illustrated by: 1. Deny it. 2. Ignore it. 3. Bomb it. While our intelligence agencies called the region the greatest threat to America, the Bush White House under-resourced our military efforts, shifted attention to Iraq, and failed to bring to justice the masterminds of September 11. The only time Cheney and his cabal of foreign policy ‘experts’ have anything to say is when they feel compelled to protect this failed legacy.

The only thing to add to that it is audacious for someone like Cheney, who had five draft deferments and never served a day in the military, to consider himself a self-proclaimed expert on national security.

It is also ironic that Cheney speaks more to the press now than he did when he was in office. Mr. Cheney, you had your chance and you blew it big time. Now go crawl back into your coffin, or bunker or wherever you came from, and leave it up to the new administration to finish the wars that you and your cohorts started.
