Dick Cheney, Liz Cheney Join Attack On Obama For ‘Abandonment Of Iraq’
One day after President Barack Obama announced the planned deployment of hundreds of troops to Iraq, former Vice President Dick Cheney and his daughter, Liz Cheney, joined the chorus of critics accusing the president of abandoning Iraq.
Cheney and his daughter penned an opinion piece that will be published in The Wall Street Journal Wednesday, slamming Obama for being “so wrong about so much at the expense of so many.” They criticize the president for abandoning Iraq and for failing to “keep the peace,” while terrorist groups are “emboldened and on the march.”
“Iraq is at risk of falling to a radical Islamic terror group and Mr. Obama is talking climate change. Terrorists take control of more territory and resources than ever before in history, and he goes golfing. He seems blithely unaware, or indifferent to the fact, that a resurgent al Qaeda presents a clear and present danger to the United States of America,” they write.
