Arrogant, Delusional, Lying SOB

Feel free to add your own adjectives to my description of the Veep from the Deep, Fearmaster Useless Dick Cheney. From CNN:
"There clearly was a relationship. It's been testified to. The evidence is overwhelming," Cheney said in an interview with CNBC's "Capitol Report."

"It goes back to the early '90s. It involves a whole series of contacts, high-level contacts with Osama bin Laden and Iraqi intelligence officials."

"The press, with all due respect, (is) often times lazy, often times simply reports what somebody else in the press said without doing their homework."

Members of 9/11 commission found "no credible evidence" that Iraq was involved in the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks carried out by al Qaeda hijackers, and they concluded that there was "no collaborative relationship" between Iraq and Osama bin Laden, the network's leader, according to details of its findings disclosed Wednesday at a public hearing.
What Useless Dick will never admit is that the so-called relationship ENDED pretty much at the same time it began--in the early '90's. Somebody arranged a meeting between a representative of Saddam and Osama in the Sudan. They talked, decided they still hated each other, and went their separate ways. To this day, the strongest, and pretty much only, ties between al Qaeda and Iraq can be found in Washington. Without massive support from the Reagan and Bush I administrations (including Cheney), it is unlikely that either Saddam or Osama would have even been minor players on the world scene by the '90's.

And then there's this:
Asked if he knows information that the 9/11 commission does not know, Cheney replied, "Probably."
Given that the commission interviewed Cheney and has repeatedly asked for all of the information that the White House has, that answer in itself should be sufficient grounds for impeachment of Cheney.
