Could Dick Cheney really be this evil?Did Cheney deny help to suffering children in order to score some petty gains against the State Department?
Is there any shred of humanity left in Dick Cheney? Below is an article which claims that Dick Cheney denied humanitarian aid to injured women and children in order to undermine Condoleezza Rice.
Last week's cynical undermining of Nancy Palosi by Ehud Olmert was likely at the request of the White House. By most accounts, Nanci Pelosi correctly delivered Olmert's message to Bashar Assad but the White House instructed Olmert to make it seem like Pelosi bungled it. Fox, of course, hammered on it and the false story was widely reported in the mainstream media as fact.
Does this kind of high-stakes petty politics feel familiar? It should.
Apparently, this is replay of the dirty trick Dick Cheney played on Condoleezza Rice when she was trying to get Israel to back off from bombing Lebanon last summer.
You remember... the whole world was begging Israel to take a break so that the thousands of innocents caught in the crossfire could get to hospital or at least get some food and water. Apparently, Rice had some success in negotiation but...
[The Jewish Telegraphic Agency] recalled a similar incident during the war with Hezbollah when Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice talked Olmert into a 48-hour cease fire to allow humanitarian relief, but within hours Israeli planes were bombing again, to Rice's surprise and anger.If true -- and it has the feel of truth -- it is a stunning indictment on the amorality ... no, immorality -- of Dick Cheney. If he really blocked a humanitarian effort in order to place internal politics with the State Department then he is an evil, evil man.
It concluded that "Olmert had received a call, apparently from Cheney's office, telling him to ignore Rice".
I recommend reading the whole article. Major event like these are nearly forgotten in America when the truth eventually comes out(and the Whitehouse counts on your bad memory to keep pulling these stunts).
The domineering White House
I cringe whenever Israel misbehaves because most people in this part of the world put equal blame on America. They believe that Israel doesn't act without permission or even direct orders from the US.
This article -- like the many before it -- indicates there is some truth to this belief.
