Conservative columnist George Will went after former Vice President Dick Cheney on Sunday, saying the Bush administration could have used some "dithering" before they invaded Iraq.
Will was responding to the VP's widely-circulated comment that President Obama was "dithering" on Afghanistan and putting troops in danger. On the contrary, Will said, it was hasty decisions that put people at risk.
"A bit of dithering might have been in order before we went into Iraq in pursuit of non-existent weapons of mass destruction," Will said on ABC's "This Week. "For a representative of the Bush administration to accuse someone of taking too much time is missing the point. We have much more to fear in this town from hasty than from slow government action."

Nope. I think Cheney is entitled to his opinion just like everyone else. He isn't VP anymore and he doesn't make policy. If you don't like what he says, simply turn the channel.

I am just wondering how what Dick Cheney thinks is even relative, and why anyone is listening.
I believe this is all promotion for his upcoming book and to advance his daughters career

"And for the record, I STILL like Cheney."
Out of curiousity, do you also worship Satan?
