Cheney wrong on Iraq

Filed under: News — Scottie @ 11:47

Recall All Republicans (The good folks at the Washington Post’s Vox have…).

The good folks at the Washington Post’s Vox have compiled a damning indictment of Cheney’s deep dishonesty about Iraq. In the interest of brevity, let me focus on a few lowlights:

He said the lead 9/11 hijacker “did go to Prague, and he did meet with a senior official of the Iraqi intelligence service … several months before the attack.” Wrong, according to a Senate Intelligence Committee report.

He said Saddam had “an established relationship with al Qaeda.” Wrong .

Cheney claimed there was “irrefutable evidence” Saddam had reconstituted his nuclear program. Wrong.

He said Saddam “had an established relationship with al Qaeda, providing training to al Qaeda members in areas of poisons, gases and conventional bombs.” Wrong.

He said there was “overwhelming” evidence of ties between al Qaeda and Iraq. Wrong.

He said that we’d be “greeted as liberators” and that the insurgency was in its “last throes” nine years ago. Wrong and wrong.

And that’s just on Iraq.

Shakesville: An Observation

Shakesville: An Observation.

 

image of a thin, young, white man walking holding a handwritten sign reading: 'Who voted for your marriage?'
A friend of mine posted this picture on social media last night. It’s a picture I’ve seen before, and it’s a damn fine question.

Whenever I see it, I think: You know, lots of straight people have had people try to “vote” on their marriages. A parent or in-law or friend who made egregious attempts to intervene in destructive ways because they didn’t agree with one’s choice of partner. And if it didn’t happen to you, you probably know someone to whom it happened. 

Everyone generally agrees (even the people who do it, if someone tries to do it to them) that’s a shitty way to behave. Everyone generally understands it’s annoying at best, and profoundly hurtful at worst. 

And yet there are a lot of straight people who can’t, or won’t, consider what it feels like to have millions, MILLIONS, of strangers assert the right to do the same thing. 

Well, virtually the same thing, except for how they get to cowardly hide inside a voting booth, instead of doing it right to the faces of the human beings whose rights they want to deny en masse. 

On principle, I object to the idea of mob rule and empowering the tyranny of the majority by giving people the opportunity to vote on other people’s rights. But also? I just straight-up call bullshit on straight people who claim a right to meddle in other people’s relationships in a way most of us agree is abusive, when it’s not done under the auspices of “democracy.”

GOP Congressman Says Central America Too Dangerous for Congressmen—But Not for Kids | Mother Jones

GOP Congressman Says Central America Too Dangerous for Congressmen—But Not for Kids

Rep. Steve Pearce (R-N.M.), who spent the weekend visiting Honduras and Guatemala with six other members of Congress, reaffirmed his belief on Wednesday that the ongoing humanitarian crisis along the southern border is to send migrants home—even though he found his host city too dangerous to go outside.

Per the Santa Fe New Mexican:

Congressman Steve Pearce said Wednesday that most immigrants from Central America who are crossing illegally into the United States are driven by economic reasons, not fear of physical danger in their homeland.

Pearce said he and the rest of the House delegation that visited Honduras and Guatemala did not venture from their hotel very often because of the dangers, but the message they received in both countries was consistent: “Send back our children.”

So to recap: Tegucigalpa is too dangerous for grown members of Congress to leave their downtown hotel rooms, but a perfectly fine place to send an eight-year-old kid. (According to apress release, the congressional delegation did leave their hotel to visit an outreach center funded by the US government. They also met with the president and first lady of Honduras.) Meanwhile, not content with the results of Pearce’s investigation, a rival Congressional delegation, led by Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), is en route to Central America now. We’ll see if they find it safe enough to walk around.
