Cheney dumbfounded: We were always locked and loaded on 9/11

Former Vice President Dick Cheney told Sean Hannity Monday night that the Sept. 11 Benghazi debacle should never have happened. “We were always locked and loaded on 9/11,” he said of the Bush administration.

Hannity interviewed Cheney on the phone and referred to the terrorist attack on the U.S. foreign mission in Benghazi, Libya on Sept. 11 as “one of the worst incidents, frankly, that I can recall in my career.”

He noted the white-washed talking points the administration used to promote the false narrative that al-Qaida was on the run.

“The administration either had no forces ready to respond to an attack, which should have been anticipated on the anniversary of 9/11, or they refused to deploy them when our people asked for them.”

The former vice president observed that “after 9/11, we were always there, locked and loaded, ready to go on 9/11. We have specially-trained units that practice this thing all the time. They are very good at it and they are chomping at the bit to go.”

Noting the current administration’s apparent lack of available assets, he asked, “Why weren’t provisions made to have forces within range and just an hour away from Benghazi. Why weren’t they deployed and ready to go to take action in any of those areas in the Middle East or North Africa? It makes no sense.”
