Cheney Still ‘Supreme Operator’

A one-time insider in the Bush administration suggests that former vice president Dick Cheney has a strong say in the Obama White House policies.


“He still has people in the Obama administration, in the bowels of the bureaucracy and he is still impacting the American policy. . . This is a supreme operator,” claimed former chief of staff to ex-US Secretary of State Colin Powell, Lawrence Wilkerson speaking to Russia Today on Sunday.

He described Cheney as the time’s “very powerful vice president backed by a very naïve president who went along mostly with what the vice president said.”

Wilkerson is the second official to recently torpedo the former second-in-command’s reputation after investigative journalist Seymour Hersh suggested that Cheney was supervising an ‘assassination ring‘.

Wilkerson took Hersh’s allegations a step further, suggesting that Cheney was a principal director of the brigade.

“This is nothing new that someone would pour covert operations into the White House and Cheney was the perfect person to do it. He had the mindset for it. He had the dark-side philosophy for it and so forth. I have no problem believing that. They wanted their own intelligence and so you get the transfer of CIA-blessed techniques over to the Pentagon.”
