Cheney on 4000 dead: Sympathy for Bush, military families -- not so much

From the lead to the ABC News online summary of its latest interview segment with the Veep: "In an exclusive interview with ABC News, Vice President Dick Cheney was asked what effect the grim milestone of at least 4,000 U.S. deaths in the five-year Iraq war might have on the nation. Noting the burden placed on military families, the vice president said the biggest burden is carried by President George W. Bush, and reminded the public that U.S. troops in Iraq and Afghanistan volunteered for duty."

If one made a list of individuals responsible for the deaths of innocents in the last 100 years, those topping Bush and Cheney would be few. Decades of daily torture would not suffice as fitting punishment for the horrors they have wrought.
