Ten years later after the start of the Iraq war, the neocons still don’t see the error of their ways. Mother Jones’ David Corn and author Ron Suskind join Hardball to discuss.
Highlights: Cheney, Wolfowitz, and Perle skewered in detail, airing their past words and their present insouciance. Cheney is called sadistic, all of them are called shameless. Hard-hitting. Bottom line: the 935 now-documented lies were deliberate, with the invasion of Iraq as the primary US military objective in the first Bush -Cheney Administration.
Phi Beta Iota: This is the single best 15 minute overview of the treason against the Republic by Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, Paul Wolfowitz, and Richard Perle, among others. Ron Susskind, perhaps the single best author on insider politics in the US Executive, is now lighting a fire in the public mind.
