Cheney Defies Bush On Iran

This post, written by Dr. Bruce Prescott, originally appeared on Mainstream Baptist

Raw Story is reporting that Washington insiders are saying that Vice President Chency is employing "an end run strategy" around President Bush and Secretary of Defense Gates in regard to policy with Iran.

Quoting Steve Clemons of the Washington Note:
The zinger of this information is the admission by this Cheney aide that Cheney himself is frustrated with President Bush and believes, much like Richard Perle, that Bush is making a disastrous mistake by aligning himself with the policy course that Condoleezza Rice, Bob Gates, Michael Hayden and McConnell have sculpted.
According to this official, Cheney believes that Bush can not be counted on to make the "right decision" when it comes to dealing with Iran and thus Cheney believes that he must tie the President's hands.
If this is true, it may be time to impeach Chency for "criminal insubordination."
