Papa Cheney and daughter Liz join forces on project that makes liberals lose their minds

Former Vice President Dick Cheney and his daughter Liz Cheney published a scathing op ed in The Wall Street Journal reflecting on the terror attacks on September 11, 2001 and slamming Barack Obama for having done more to weaken the U.S. than any other president. Naturally the left went crazy over Cheney’s accusations.

In their editorial, published in the Journal on September 9, the Cheneys say “Defeating our enemies has been made significantly more difficult by the policies of Barack Obama.”

“No American president has done more to weaken the U.S., hobble our defenses or aid our adversaries,” the pair added.

The former VP is particularly critical of Obama’s penchant of releasing terrorists as well as Obama’s policy of refusing to even capture them in the first place.

We are no longer interrogating terrorists in part because we are no longer capturing terrorists. Since taking office, the president has recklessly pursued his objective of closing the detention facility at Guantanamo by releasing current detainees—regardless of the likelihood they will return to the field of battle against us. Until recently, the head of recruitment for ISIS in Afghanistan and Pakistan was a former Guantanamo detainee, as is one of al Qaeda’s most senior leaders in the Arabian Peninsula.

As he released terrorists to return to the field of battle, Mr. Obama was simultaneously withdrawing American forces from Iraq and Afghanistan. He calls this policy “ending wars.” Most reasonable people recognize this approach as losing wars.

Cheney also scolded Obama, one-time Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and current Sec. of State John Kerry for bending over backwards for Iran’s Mullahs.

“President Obama and Secretaries of State Hillary Clinton and John Kerry were so concerned with pleasing Iran’s ruling mullahs that they were willing to overlook the American blood on Iranian hands and decades of Iran’s activities as the world’s leading state sponsor of terror. In pursuit of the nuclear deal, they made concession after dangerous concession,” they wrote.

Naturally the far left went out of its tiny collective mind over the Cheney editorial slamming Obama as feckless in the war on terror.

Liberal writer Eric Boehlert led the way slamming Cheney for the article.

Boehlert’s tweet was mild compared to the rest.

One leftist even thought there should be a law, or something, to prevent people from criticizing Obama on the anniversary of 9/11.
