Dick Cheney is on a book tour across America when he was discussing the Iraq war.
He told one audience “What we gain and my concern was then and it remains today is that the biggest threat we face is the possibility of terrorist groups like al Qaeda equipped with weapons of mass destruction, with nukes, bugs or gas. That was the threat after 9/11 and when we took down Saddam Hussein we eliminated Iraq as a potential source of that.
Basically, Cheney is saying that the thousands upon thousands of people that are killed due to the war was worth it because we found Iraq did NOT have any weapons of mass destruction.
We killed thousands of innocent women and children and somehow to Cheney, this was a good thing because we found nothing.
