Former Chief of Staff to Sec. of State Colin Powell, Col. Lawrence Wilkerson, didn't have a lot of nice things to say Dick Cheney recently when he appeared with Rachel Maddow. In fact, he based his assessment on the fact that Cheney is afraid of his own shadow, a frightened cowering coward. I haven't seen anything like this take down in quite awhile.
Wilkerson: "Vice President Cheney is a man who frightens easily. All you have to do is go back to his 5 deferments to the Vietnam conflict, his behavior post 9/11, undisclosed locations and so forth, and the immanent and the politics of fear that pervaded the first Bush administration.
