Bush/Cheney still to blame for Hasan killings

That is, according to "progressive" punditry. First we saw Stephanie Miller; now, MSNBC dunderhead Ed Schultz actually did the unthinkable for a lib -- called Hasan a "terrorist" -- but then proceeded to, yep, blame George W. Bush and Dick Cheney:

SCHULTZ: Where the hell was Mr. Tough Guy, Dick Cheney? Because they were checking this guy out during the Bush administration, the Department of Homeland Security under the Bush years, the biggest rearrangement of government in the history of America, the Department of Homeland Security, and all the checks and balances ...

CALLER: Is that true?

SCHULTZ: Wait a minute! And all the checks and balances. They knew who this guy was, the FBI did, back in 2007. And they knew exactly what the writings he was having, the contacts he was having. So, where the hell's Dick Cheney on this one?! Hell, we got hit on their watch again 'cause they didn't stop us from that guy doing what he did!

CALLER: So, are you telling me that Dick Cheney knew about this guy back in 2007?

SCHULTZ: I think we should ask the question. I mean, come on (crosstalk) this, this happened on, this happened on the Bush administration's watch! He slipped through the cracks!

I'm glad Schultz sees it that way. This means that the 9/11 attacks thus fall squarely and completely on the shoulders of one William Jefferson Clinton who let Osama bin Laden "slip through the cracks" more than once -- even "slip through the gunsight" when we had him dead to rights.

That certainly wasn't the position of our LGOMB. Just see here, here, here, and here ("George Bush was the President during the attack and his incompetence allowed the attack to take place ..."). Not to mention myriad comments across the local 'sphere.

I'm certain it's a line of "reasoning" that Schultz won't press ...

No, Hube, you are completely wrong on this one. Everything is the fault of George W. Bush and Dick Cheney.

Hasan.

9/11.

The USS Cole.

Khobar Towers.

The Six-Day War.

The establishment of Israel.

Pope Urban's declaration of the First Crusade.

EVERYTHING!

Wrong: If Cheney had known about Major Hasan's outreach to al Quaeda he would have blown his face off with a shotgun.

interesting article. I would love to follow you on twitter. By the way, did anyone hear that some Iranian hacker had busted twitter yesterday.
