Dick Cheney regrets Hillary Clinton is not US president


The former vice president told "Fox News Sunday", on 4 September 2011, that he deplores Hillary Clinton is not president of the United States instead of Barack Obama.

During the Libyan war, Obama held out as long as possible against NATO’s onslauch on Tripoli and the bloodshed that it would entail. On the contrary, the Secretary of State pushed for the Straussian option of "constructive chaos" plugged by certain members of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

Moreover, according to a top-ranking U.S. military figure who managed to reach former U.S. Congressman Walter E. Fauntroy by phone during the Rixos Hotel siege in Tripoli, it was Hillary Clinton who allegedly gave the order to eliminate Fauntroy, in Libya on a peace mission, and the Voltaire Network team should the opportunity arise.
