Tricky Dick's Russian Roulette

Either Dick Cheney is completely clueless regarding the conflict that Russian is embroiled in with Chechnya or he is just so shameless as to blatantly mislead the American people. I am guessing the latter since the conflict in Chechnya has been going on for the past 10 years (actually the past 250 years) and has nothing to do with Iraq. It is not really all that surprising that Cheney would try to connect the terrorist attacks on Russian school children to the Iraq war since he tried to do the same thing with al Queda and Iraq even though the 9/11 commission has completely dismissed that charge....

OTTUMWA, Iowa, Sept. 13, Cheney: "Russia of course did not support us in Iraq, they did not get involved in sending troops there. They got hit anyway. I think we're back now reassessing what the motives may be of the people who are launching these attacks." Speaking of European countries, Cheney said, "I think some have hoped that if they kept their heads down and stayed out of the line of fire they wouldn't get hit. I think what happened in Russia demonstrates pretty conclusive that everybody is a target." - as reported by Lisa Rein reporter for the Washington Post

Dick Cheney has no shame! He uses the deaths on 9/11 for political gain and now he is using the deaths of inoccent children for political gain.
