Major General Paul D. Eaton, who served more than 30 years in the United States Army in combat and post-combat assignments in Iraq, Bosnia and Somalia, joined Ari Rabin-Havt on The Agenda on SiriusXM Progress early Wednesday morning to discuss proposed cuts to the military budget.
But his most interesting statements were in response to Dick Cheney’s divisive comments on Fox News reiterating the “Food Stamp President” cries of the far right.
“It’s unfortunate that he has not followed the… model of his former boss, President Bush, and gone off quietly to write his memoir,” Major General Eaton said. “Vice President Cheney is one of the architects if the worst foreign policy disaster of the 21st century. The decision to attack Iraq, and to do so in such an incompetent manner, does not give him a platform to say ANYTHING about the foreign policy… of today.”
