White House Fires Back After Cheney Calls CIA Probe 'Political'
Fox ^ | 8/31/09 | staff

Posted on 08/31/2009 12:27:31 PM PDT by Nachum

The White House on Monday fired back after former Vice President Dick Cheney called the Obama administration's decision to open a probe into alleged CIA abuses an "outrageous political act."

Stupid old Gibbs doesn't know enough about anything to be "typical" himself.

I thought I saw him in a previous life ~ he was flipping the switch on the Zycon B container.

This could get fun. I love it when VP Cheney tells it like it is and zero (via Gibbs) responds by effectively sticking his tongue out at Cheney!

Gibbs said the war in Afghanistan was ‘underfunded, undermanned, neglected and ignored’ for almost a decade. Why did then Senators Obama and Biden ignore and neglect the war in Afghanistan? Why did they hold up funding for the war? And Pelosi? Kennedy? Reid? Rockefeller? the list goes on...It was Congress’ duty to fund the war....the citizens are not the problem. Our troops are not the problem. Our congress is.

Gibbs said: “The vice president (Cheney) ... clearly had his facts on a number of things wrong.”

IIIIII don’t think so!

Didn’t Gibbs say that there was NOTHING in the HealthCare Bill about Death Panels ONLY to have Sarah Palin’s facebook page make them do an about-face and state that they are taking ‘that’ out of the bill?

So ... who has the facts wrong?!!

And how did you like that bit about ‘War on Terror’ ... Didn’t Gibbs and/or another member of the White House state that there is not war on Terror? Wassup Gibbs?!!

I read and agree with an earlier post, Cheney set the stage: strike on US is on the messiah’s head!

I may not agree with everything about Bush and Cheney, but MY WORD I FELT A HELLOVA LOT MORE SECURE UNDER THEIR ADMINISTRATION.

They are still afraid of Cheney.

Too bad GWB doesn’t speak up and make some noise.

I agree. Cheney is one of the few real conservatives still around.
