Fifteen years later, the Middle East is still reeling from the United States’ invasion of Iraq, the cataclysmic civil war that followed, and the terrorist insurgencies that still plague the region to this day.
The architects of that war, the scheming neocons and ideological hacks whose greed, incompetence and prejudice directly led to the deaths of nearly half a million people have slowly been crawling out of their catacombs and showing their faces in public again, reassured by the shameful liberal rehabilitation of George W. Bush that all has been forgotten.
Fortunately, not everyone is willing to let responsibility for the worst foreign policy disaster since the Vietnam War be lost to the sands of time.

How These People Became America's Biggest Traitors
The daughter of Iraq war architect and neocon archdemon Dick Cheney, Rep. Liz Cheney, was sworn into Congress yesterday and kicked things off with a Trumpian speech slamming the Democrats for their humane immigration policies and accusing us of perpetuating the “fraud of socialism.”
In modern Republican parlance, “socialism” refers to anything and everything that is designed to benefit the public and paid for by the taxpayers.
Healthcare for children? Socialism. Food stamps? Socialism. Public post offices? Socialism. Nearly $5 trillion for a questionably legal war on false pretenses that created huge profits for defense contractors and the oil company Vice President Cheney used to sit on the board of? Why, that’s a critically important foreign policy expenditure to keep America safe!
Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT), one of the few Senators to vote against the Iraq War and a proud democratic socialist, warned Liz Cheney that those who live in glass houses built on fraud should not be throwing stones.
Rep. Liz Cheney, daughter of Dick Cheney, yesterday attacked "the fraud of socialism." Really? I wasn't aware that it was "socialism" that lied about weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, and got us into a horrific war that we should never have started.

George W. Bush and Dick Cheney lied to the world about Saddam Hussein’s weapons of mass destruction and plunged the entire region into a vortex of violence and chaos while mortgaging our country’s future to fight endless and unwinnable foreign wars of imperialist conquest.
Nobody on the right-wing, especially not with the last name “Cheney,” has any right to be accusing anyone of fraud, especially now that their party is being led by a man who has spent his entire life committing outrageous fraud.
