WASHINGTON, D.C. (The Adobo Chronicles) – Former U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney was busted for his role in war crimes committed during the administration of his former boss, George W. Bush.
This is the first time that Cheney was made to answer for his crimes on U.S. soil. He was busted at the U.S. Capitol. The war crimes include torture suffered by victims at the hands of soldiers and contractors in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Ironically, Cheney’s busting was witnessed by no less than Bush himself.
In 2012, Bush, Cheney and other key members of their administration were found guilty of war crimes in a trial held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. They were tried in absentia.
Responding to questions from the media after Cheney was busted, Bush said he was relieved that his Vice President was just busted, and not hanged.
WASHINGTON, D.C. (The Adobo Chronicles) – Former Vice President Dick Cheney took another swipe at President Barack Obama on Tuesday, criticizing him over the Iran deal framework put in place last week.
Cheney, who accused Iran of having “one of the most radical regimes in history” and being “sworn to destroy Israel,” told radio host Hugh Hewitt the deal will be a “burden” on the next occupant of the White House. “This is a totally radical regime that is the premiere sponsor of state terrorism in the world, and Obama’s about to give them nuclear weapons,” Cheney said. “I can’t think of a more terrible burden to leave the next president than what Obama is creating here.”
There is a big problem, though. Cheney told The Adobo Chronicles that he was misquoted by Hewitt and subsequently, by FOX News, saying that as far as he can remember of the radio interview, he said “George W.” not “Obama.”
Meanwhile, the next occupant of the White House, Hillary Clinton said, “It’s not going to be burden at all!”
Houston, Texas (The Adobo Chronicles) – George W. Bush today accused Barack of Obama of plagiarizing the Republican president’s May 15, 2006 speech on immigration.
Last night, Obama delivered a prime-time speech to announce executive actions he was taking to provide deportation relief to some 5 Million undocumented immigrants.
Bush said, “if you listened very closely to what Obama said, he practically copied my speech from the Oval Office which I made in 2006”
Both speeches touched on exactly the same themes: that the U.S. is a nation of laws and a nation of immigrants; that we need to secure our borders; that Congress needs to pass an immigration reform bill; and that what they were proposing was not amnesty.
Speaking from the Bush family ranch in Houston, George W. demanded that Obama apologize to him and the nation for stealing his words and for his lack of original ideas on immigration.
The White House has refused to comment on Bush’s allegation.
