Rand Paul Calls Out Dick Cheney

Rand Paul: Cheney Pushed War For Halliburton”

Dreher and I agree that Paul went a bit overboard on this one. But he makes an important point: the GOP has gone from being the biggest foe of the Iron Triangle between DoD, Congress, and defense contractors, to being its biggest cheerleader.

Embarrassing. Ike is doing triple salchows in his grave.

History will ascribe this shift to the neoconservatives, who, fortunately, have long passed their apogee.

In the meantime, it is encouraging to see that a growing number of folks on the right joining the Bull Moose in our belief that the Pentagon and its Military Industrial Complex are out of control, and must be stopped before they permanently undermine the national defense.
