Cheney in '94: Invading Baghdad Would Lead to a "Quagmire" [VIDEO]
In this interview from April 15th, 1994, Dick Cheney reveals the reasons why invading Baghdad and toppling Saddam Hussein wouldn't be a great idea. He also stipulates that "not very many" American soldiers' lives were worth losing to take out Saddam during the Gulf War. It's utterly bizarre to see footage of Cheney where he actually seems remotely sane and remotely interested in preserving human life. Many have theorized that for years Cheney had been wanting to invade Iraq and was just looking for the opportunity. So was he lying in this 1994 interview, which is not at all surprising, or did neoconservatives get into his head shortly thereafter?
