Dick Cheney is not just a river in Egypt

In an interview with Jim Lehrer tonight that made me wonder what he is drinking, VP Cheney claims that Saddam Hussein worked with al-Qaeda, that the US did not torture, and that the collapsing economy was not his administration’s fault, but was caused by poor handling by previous presidents. When asked if he made any mistakes at all in the last 8 years, Cheney mentions only underestimating the psychological harm that Saddam had done to his own people.

He doesn’t mention any psychological harm that he, himself, might have suffered. Maybe he is working on an insanity defense?
