Cheney: Iran Deal ‘Puts Us Closer’ to Nuclear War than ‘At Any Time Since ... WWII’
Cheney: Iran Deal Puts Us Closer to ‘Actual Use’ of Nukes Than Anything Else Since WWII (Mediaite)
Former Vice President Dick Cheney weighed in on the Iran nuke deal with Sean Hannity tonight, saying it’s a clear-cut “lie” when President Obama claims they stopped nuclear proliferation.
He told Hannity he’s disturbed by what happened today, saying Obama “sanctioned the acquisition by Iran of nuclear capability.”
“It’s a matter of months,” Cheney warned, “until we’re going to see a situation where other people feel they have to defend themselves by acquiring their own capability. And that will, in fact, I think put us closer to use––actual use of nuclear weapons than we’ve been at any time since Hiroshima and Nagasaki in World War II.”
