Liz Cheney: loyal daughter, misinformed, or just plain liar?

FoxNews.com headline: Liz Cheney: Biden, Obama Administration Ignoring Al Qaeda Pursuit of WMD.

Fox reports that Cheney “accused Vice President Biden of downplaying the threat from Al Qaeda and suggested the Obama administration isn’t doing everything in its power to stop terror.” Their report quotes Cheney: “Al Qaeda is working very hard to try to obtain weapons of mass destruction and Al Qaeda armed with any nuclear or biological weapon is clearly one of the gravest threats we face…The notion that this White House and this administration is minimizing that possibility makes you very concerned, I think has to make us very concerned about whether or not they are doing everything in their power to prevent it.”

Huh? Where’s she been for the last few years?

Obama has long stated that the number one threat to our security is the possibility of nuclear weapons in the hands of terrorists. As recently as his speech on Afghanistan on December 1, 2009 he stated that, “we know that al-Qaeda and other extremists seek nuclear weapons, and we have every reason to believe that they would use them.”

She’s not a recluse or a dummy: it’s hard to conclude that she’s anything but a pants-on-fire liar. Worse, she’s strengthening Al Qaeda’s efforts to sow terror in the Western world.

    Oh, my, I’m laughing so hard I can hardly breathe! “Pant-on-fire-liar?” She clearly is. Liz Cheney lies repeatedly. How ugly! I also agree with your “worse yet.” But I wonder if her name was Liz Brown would what she says matter? Really? What has SHE done except for be the daughter of a vice-president? Why does she get so much press? Her father is becoming a disgrace. Although former VP Cheney was better in his appearance on This Week, he still was trying to control things as an armchair president. Oh, wait, he was the vice-president. VP Biden on the Press questioned whether Cheney was informed or whether he was simply not being honest. Yeah, maybe it is like father like daughter. This is very sad for one who has held such a high office and who had worked in government for years. His behavior has been dishonorable and despicable. It’s very sad indeed and dangerous as you noted.

    Sadly, Liz Cheney had a big job in the Bush State Department: Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary of State For Near Eastern Affairs. It’s a long title, but take my word as a former deputy assistant secretary of defense, it was an important job. The “principal” meant she was over several deputy assistant secretaries. And Near East–pretty scary.

    Oh, thanks for that. All I have known her to be was the daughter of Dick Cheney. Regarding your word, I am usually inclined to take it. 🙂
