Dick Cheney Tears Into Condoleeza Rice For NOT Bowing To His Will [View all]

Dick Cheney Tears Into Condoleeza Rice

In an upcoming documentary about the legacy of Dick Cheney, Foreign Policy notes the former vice president lashes out at Condoleezza Rice for overriding his recommendation to bomb a suspected Syrian nuclear reactor in 2007.

Said Cheney: "I thought (destroying the reactor) would reassert the kind of authority and influence we had back in '03 when we took down Saddam Hussein and eliminated Iraq as a potential source of WMD. Condi was on the wrong side of all those issues so we had significant issues."

"In his 2011 memoir In My Time, Cheney called the former diplomat 'naive' for her attempts to negotiate with North Korea and said she once 'tearfully admitted' her mistakes to him in his office."
