Retired Army Colonel Lawrence Wilkerson Rips Dick Cheney

Dick Cheney

Lawrence Wilkerson isn’t known for pulling punches when it comes to his opinion about Dick Cheney. He has always been ready to criticize the former Vice President for his failures and his lies. He should know all about those lies since he worked as Colin Powell’s assistant during his stint as Secretary of State under George W. Bush and was privy to many of the machinations by Dick Cheney and company during the run-up to the Iraq war. Here, however, he sums up Dick Cheney’s entire existence┬áby diagnosing him as basically amoral. He goes on to say:

“Immorality is something that can be ferreted out, checked and balanced. Amorality is an altogether different affair, especially when you’re exploiting the politics of fear in order to carry out state purposes, which is what Dick Cheney’s forte is,”

Dick Cheney isn’t Immoral, he’s Amoral

About Mike Burns

For years I was a self described independent. I liked the idea that America was built on the powerful idea of compromise. Politics at its best was an exercise in give and take that at least tried to be respectful of both sides of an issue. However, since the rise of right wing talk radio and Fox News, this no longer seems possible. For me, it is time to fight back in my small way. The conservatives have had their way with the truth for too long without enough of us standing up and saying no more lies. Maybe this blog will make a small difference, maybe not. The main thing is that it will satisfy my need to speak out against conservative hate and hypocrisy. Mike Burns Google+
