Cheney One on One: A Candid Conversation with America’s Most Controversial Statesman

by James Rosen, 256 Pages
Publisher: Regnery Publishing, 2015

** Exclusive CBC Author Interview with James Rosen ** 

In December 2014, a few weeks before his seventy-fourth birthday, former Vice President Dick Cheney invited Fox News reporter James Rosen into his northern Virginia home. Over three days, Rosen recorded ten hours of conversations with the man known as the “Darth Vader” of American politics.

A small fraction of the interview was adapted into an April 2015 Playboy interview; but now, Rosen shares the whole, incredible conversation. With no topic off limits, the former vice president opened up about his complicated relationships with President George W. Bush and former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, and talks candidly about why his influence in the White House waned over Bush’s second term.

Rosen also presses Cheney about his WWII-era childhood, his two DUI arrests and expulsion from Yale, his political coming-of-age during the Watergate era, his reflections on 9/11 and the Iraq War, his misgivings about Syria and North Korea, his role in the development of the CIA’s “enhanced interrogation techniques” and the NSA’s warrantless surveillance program, and his views on life, death, and God.

Cheney One on One is an essential document of modern America: a major oral history whose every page contains important and fascinating recollections of one of the most tumultuous periods in our nation’s history, from one of its most powerful and controversial figures.

    The Financing of the War on Terror: Afghanistan/Iraq
    The public-at-large tends to have less interest in foreign policy issues than in local and family concerns. The public-at-large is also crisis-orientated. Its interest is aroused by vivid television coverage; for example, starving children or fleeing refugees. The Grand Strategy consists of a clear articulation of national interests tied to a set of operational plans that will advance [their hidden agenda]. Many individual business corporations with foreign interests maintain permanent offices in Washington, D.C., including AIPAC, or the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, which is the most important organization affecting the U.S. relationship with Israel. AIPAC also known as the (“Israel Lobby”) supports a dangerous status quo, including AIPAC’s support for U.S. military aid to Israel, which amounts to over $3 billion per year. Including an annual budget of $65 million, and membership now standing at over 100,000, it is one of the most powerful and effective lobbies on Capitol Hill. When it comes to transparency rarely is a critical word uttered among politicians regarding AIPAC and its associates that support unjust and aggressive (and disastrous) U.S. policies toward the peoples of the Middle East. For too long, policies that support Israeli militarism and occupation have gone unchallenged.
    Facts: Before the first plane hit the first tower on 911, a massive US, British and NATO troop build-up was already organized and positioned for an attack against Israel’s enemies: Opium rich Afghanistan and Oil rich Iraq. With no solid proof of who was responsible for 911, George Bush Jr./Dick Cheney/Halliburton attacked poverty stricken and war ravished Afghanistan only 4 weeks after 911. The US and British military dropped 12,000 bombs on thousands of buildings and homes, pounding them into dust and rubble and killing 8,000 Afghan people. 20,000 more people died from war related cold, starvation and disease. The US-British war on Afghanistan left behind millions of starving people. There can never be peace and democracy in Afghanistan. Because peace and democracy would expose and cut off America’s Opium and Heroin supply at the source.
    Economics: So what was the pay-off for the US-British war on Afghanistan?
    1. The uncooperative Taliban warlords got kicked out and replaced by the cooperative Northern Alliance war lords. 2. Opium and Heroin production and revenues sky-rocketed. 3. Afghanistan got a new leader called Hamid Karzai, who just happens to be an ex-employee of Unical oil. 4. America got permission to build their oil and gas pipe-line through Afghanistan. 5. The Bush administration’s favorite excuse for war, Osama bin Laden, who worked for the CIA by the way was allowed to escape.
    America’s second favorite excuse for war, Saddam Hussein, has always been America’s patsy. In the 1980’s America supported Iraq’s invasion of its neighbor Iran, to stop the spread of Iran’s Islamic Revolution. America played both sides of the Iran-Iraq war by supplying Saddam with chemical and biological weapons of mass destruction. While at the same time, America secretly sold weapons to Iran and illegally diverted the money to the contra-revolutionaries in Central America.
    In 1990, President George Bush Sr. tricked Iraq into another war, with another oil rich neighbor, Kuwait. How? By supplying Kuwait with horizontal drills which could reach beneath the border
    with Iraq and siphon oil from Iraq’s rich oil-fields. Kuwait used the US made drills to steal three hundred thousand barrels of oil per day from Iraq, worth over three billion dollars annually. George Bush sr. officially promised not to interfere with Iraq’s legitimate oil battle with Kuwait, but when Saddam’s army entered Kuwait to defend their oil reserves, Bush pounced on them.
    In March 2003 President George Bush jnr. launched the 2nd Gulf War. The second war on Iraq wasn’t about revenge for 9-11, since not one of the 19 accused terrorists were Iraqi citizens. It wasn’t about weapons of mass destruction, which inspectors hadn’t found. It wasn’t even about Saddam Hussein who had been financed into power by the US in the first place and who got his chemical and biological weapons from American Companies. No. The US wars against Iraq and Afghanistan were about mass murder and piracy. They were about big weapons sales, big oil, big pipelines, big drugs, and big rebuilding contracts. They were about colonizing the Middle East and moving two giant steps closer to world domination. The theft and devastation of the ancient land of Iraq by the US government, closely resembles the theft and devastation of Palestine by the Israeli government.
    Cost Benefit Analysis: It was Dick Cheney’s five-year tenure as Chief Executive of Halliburton Company, the world’s largest provider of oil field equipment and services. Using his experience as Defense Secretary, Cheney transformed Halliburton into a much larger and more profitable company. He also used the connections he’d made at DOD to expand Halliburton’s international operations. As a result, Cheney and the company both have profited handsomely.
    Objective: U.S. oil services giant Halliburton led by Dick Cheney won a contract to restore Iraq’s oil sector which is one of the richest military logistics contracts in history without a competitive bid.
    Strategies: Mass Mind Control Methods: In the 1950’s a weapon was invented, which has become more powerful than America’s deadliest weapons of mass destruction. It is the weapon of mass deception. And it is right in our own living-rooms. The hypnotizing world of picture television brings us the news of the world through two central news agencies called Reuters and the Associated Press. The Rothschild’s bought Reuters in the 1800’s, which later bought the Associated Press and made the Rothschild family owners of the world’s largest central news services. To the present day, the world depends on these Rothschild owned central news services as their main source of news and information.
    In his book called Who Owns the TV Networks, author Eustace Mullins claims that the major TV networks, radio stations, newspapers and publishing empires are controlled by the Rothschild, Rockefeller and J P Morgan money cartels through their corporate conglomerates. Control over the internet, publishing, recording and cable companies can be traced back to the same big 5 media empires: General Electric, Time Warner, Viacom, Disney and Newscorp. These media companies are owned directly or indirectly by the Rothschild, J P Morgan, Rockefeller and Oppenheimer brotherhood. Film and television puts viewers in a relaxed and suggestible alpha and theta state. Alpha-theta states are the same states that hypnotherapists induce in their patients to access their subconscious mind.
    Political: Dick Cheney arrived at Halliburton after having served as secretary of defense from March 1989 to January 1993. Critics believe Vice President Dick Cheney steered the work to the company, where he served as chief executive officer from 1995 to 2000.
    Legal: “Most severe consequences” were experienced by the people of Iraq when Washington succeeded in having UN sanctions imposed after Saddam Hussein invaded Kuwait in 1990. After the Iraqis were forced out of Kuwait, it was declared that the sanctions were intended to make Iraq comply with UN Security Council Resolution 687, which demanded that Iraq eliminate its weapons of mass destruction and that it recognize the nation-state of Kuwait, which, like America’s major Arab ally, Saudi Arabia, is ruled by an entirely nondemocratic regime.
    Military: Emphasizing Saddam Hussein’s supposed stockpile of weapons of mass destruction, supposed ties to al Qaeda, and supposed nuclear weapons program, Bush built public support for and subsequently ordered an invasion of Iraq. [State of the Union, 1/28/03] However, they never found any WMD’s? In 1998 Christian Aid stated: “The policy of sanctions has also been used to pursue political goals for example, the removal of the Iraqi regime beyond the overt scope of Resolution 687, which contained no prescriptions regarding Iraq’s form of government or the conduct of domestic policy. The Iraqi population’s economic and social rights have been seriously infringed by the impact of a prolonged embargo. In an authoritarian state which continued to hold most of the levers of control, much of the burden caused by the embargo fell on the civilian population”.
    Social/Cultural: The Iraqi population’s economic and social rights have been seriously infringed by the impact of a prolonged embargo. In an authoritarian state which continued to hold most of the levers of control, much of the burden caused by the embargo fell on the civilian population”. Dr. Michele Barry points out in Annals of Internal Medicine, that economic sanctions result in shortages of food and medical supplies, their most severe consequences are often felt by the persons who are least culpable and most vulnerable.
    America disposed of its toxic waste problem by building radioactive depleted uranium right into their munitions and spreading them across Iraq. Bush sr. not only devastated and poisoned Iraq’s water systems and infrastructure, he weakened the economies of both Kuwait and Iraq, collected giant profits from rationed Iraq food for oil programs and landed massive rebuilding contracts in Kuwait. Bush Sr. Followed up the gulf war with ten long years of trade sanctions that killed another 1.5 million Iraqi people, including 600,000 children who were cut off from medical supplies.
    Outcome: Halliburton was given $39.5 billion in Iraq-related contracts over the past decade, with many of the deals given without any bidding from competing firms, such as a $568-million contract renewal in 2010 to provide housing, meals, water and bathroom services to soldiers, a deal that led to a Justice Department lawsuit over alleged kickbacks.
    Conclusion: Be selective about the food you feed your brain as you are about the food you feed your body. Turning-off the idiot box is your best option. It will free up your time to help free the earth from the stranglehold of the global thieves. Be conscious of their agenda. Whatever message they are delivering, believe the opposite. Film and television puts viewers in a relaxed and suggestible alpha and theta state. Alpha-theta states are the same states that hypnotherapists induce in their patients to access their subconscious mind.
