Cheney Rips "Missed Opportunity" of Obama's Speech: "That Was the Perfect Time to Bomb Them"

Former Vice President Dick Cheney blasted President Barack Obama over his speech in Cairo today, calling the address a "missed opportunity," explaining, "While everyone was distracted by his speech, that was the perfect time to bomb them."

Asked to elaborate on his remarks, which he made during an appearance on Fox News, Mr. Cheney said, "Look, it's military strategy 101: create a diversion, then bomb the unsuspecting bastards to kingdom come."

The former vice-president said that if he had made the speech in Cairo, "you can bet your ass it would have played out differently."

"I would have said all the same things about beginning a new era, turning a page, yada yada yada," he said. "But then, ka-BOOM!!!!"
