Former Vice President Cheney’s comments regarding President Barack Obama “being the worst president ever” are simply ludicrous. Regardless of what you think about Obama’s politics, Cheney has no room to criticize anyone, as he was the major architect of the Iraq war, convincing President Bush and most of Congress to invade Iraq. This war has proved disastrous, not only for our country but also for the entire Middle East. The billions spent on the war, the deaths and maiming of our military personnel, the deaths of thousands of Iraqi men, women and children, and the rise of ISIS are, in my opinion, adequate basis to have Cheney sent to the Netherlands for a war crimes trial.
