Lou Dubose, author of Vice: Dick Cheney and the Hijacking of the American Presidency, discusses what a hypocritical coward Dick Cheney is, his long march to power through the Nixon and Ford years, how his crew out-smarted and out-maneuvered Bush’s crew to take control over the White House, the reasons why he and Powell didn’t want to go “all the way to Baghdad,” fun speculation about what craziness may be going on inside his head, what involvement the OVP had in lying us into war, his corrupt no-bid contracts, how the Cheney Cabal killed Iran’s attempt to give up everything in April 2003.
