SANTA BARBARA, California — Former Vice President Dick Cheney praised Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak on Saturday as “a good man” and a strong friend of the United States, but said the Egyptian people will decide his fate as leader.

“He’s been a good man, he’s been a good friend and ally to the United States, and we need to remember that,” Cheney said during a question-and-answer session at a tribute to former U.S. President Ronald Reagan.

“In the end whatever comes next is going to be decided by the Egyptian people,” he said.

The United States has urged long-time ally Egypt to immediately begin an orderly transition to democracy after days of massive street protests to end Mubarak’s 30-year rule.

U.S. President Barack Obama said on Friday the era of suppressing political dissent in Egypt was over and he hoped Mubarak would make “the right decision.”

Cheney, a frequent critic of Obama, offered no opinions on Obama’s handling of the crisis but said it was important to conduct diplomacy in private.

“It is very hard for some foreign leader to act on U.S. advice in a visible way,” he said.

Cheney was U.S. defense secretary in 1990 when Iraq invaded Kuwait. He said Mubarak was a vital contributor to the military response against Iraq, granting overflight rights to U.S. planes and contributing troops to the war effort.

He declined to make a prediction about Mubarak’s future.

“I don’t know. But I also think there comes a time for everybody when it’s time to hang it up and move on,” he said.

“You get to the point where the years add up, the burdens become tougher to deal with. But as I say, that’s a decision that only the Egyptians can make.”

    Pres. Mubarak has accumulated an upper estimate of $40 billion wealth during his compete tenure from 1981 to present. This is fertile ground investigation, and there may be money trails back to the Bush/Cheney Administration. Mubarak needs to finish his term in office (ends in Sep), mainly because the uprising caught him by surprise, and he needs time to liquidate his holdings in Egypt and move the money to friendly, foreign banks. This task is made easier with the help of experienced friends, such as Dick Cheney.

    But suddenly we have the popular revolt by much of the country that puts the country in chaos that people say have been brewing for many years. Past elections for Mubarak gave him 95% to 98% of the vote. How to explain these past election results for Mubarak? He stays in power with false elections. But Cheney calls him “a good man.”

    Mubarak is a good man for certain people who stay in power because of corruption and help from Mubarak.

    Adding this update:

    US bribed Mubarak to support Israel

  • Guest

    OK. So everyone knows we give billion$ of dollar$ in aid to Egypt, right? And with that money, obviously Mubarak used a lot of it to buy military weapons, right? AMERICAN military weapons. Abrahms tanks galore!

    Nice little arrangement. ‘Will give you money Egypt, so long as you use most of it to buy our AMERICAN made (the only thing we seem to make anymore) weapons.’

    Quid pro quo. And kickbacks for everybody. That’s how dictators get rich.

    (see Richard Cheney)

    Considering how feckless and unwilling the DOJ is in investigating ANYTHING Bush/Cheney, I doubt this will go anywhere, even if they find the proverbial ‘smoking gun’.

    “it was important to conduct diplomacy in private.”

    This mentality is the core rot of corruption, period. Keeping secrets from the public, the POWER of government, is only done to make sure the defined power has no idea as to what the corrupt usurpers are doing.

    You can not have a real Democracy when there are lies and secrets and hidden agendas. Only the few looking to abuse the many benefit from such arrangements, 99% of the rest of the world becomes victims under such conditions. If you doubt such things, consider Mubarak has enriched HIS family by $40 billion to $70 billion as “leader” while the general populace in Egypt has been pushed to the point of not being able to even afford food. — Of course Dick Cheney thinks Mubarak is a “good man”, he wishes he could have stolen as much from Americans; he’s envious.

    That’s *one* way dictators get rich but there are more lucrative avenues than mere arms sales, though arms sales constitutute exchanges of billions.
    Dictators sell their natural resources to American-based multinationals in exchange for personal enrichment in the way of infrastructure loans with outrageous terms including giving up the rights to the country’s natural resources in perpetuity in the event of default. Meantime, all of the major infrastructure projects such as highways, hydro-electric dams, airports, ports, etc., are commissioned to US-based companies. All this concurrent with arms sales complete with similar kickback schemes to primarily protect those very US corporations’ interests and keep the dictator securely in place and even ensure that the gig stays in the family for generations where possible.

    From Biden to Cheney suddenly everyone loves Mubarak, why? How many ugly secrets does he have on us? How much of that 1.3 billion a year has he and his family skimmed over the years? Are we going to freeze his assets? aaahhhh NO, we lose billions and he holds our secrets.

Cheney is an arrogant criminal who has been able to continue to spout off even though he should be behind bars as one of the worlds biggest criminals.

  • James “Jesus Glasses” Corbett

    In truth, Mubarak and other American backed dictators and monarchs around the word are creatures of American Right Wing Imperialism. We support them with money, guns, and training for their thugs and claim they are preferable to a democracy that is hostile to American interests. Ironically, the view of “majority rule” without “minority rights” is red meat to American conservatism and appeals to a Christian right that is as interested in an intolerant “Christian America” in which minority rights (Jews,Gays, Liberals, Atheists, etc.) are ignored in favor of an intolerant, homophobic, misogynist, anti-Semetic, narrowly defined theocracy. The right appeals to that view of democracy in America to win elections, but when other nations embrace that same view, Conservatives claim American interests are in danger and use that claim to encourage support for those American-backed, often tyrannical, dictators.

    Progressives need to understand that when we sell “majority rule” around the world,we must also sell “minority rights” or the result of a “democratic revolution” will often be an anti-American religion-driven “mobocracy.” If we fail to sell both, we play into the hands of the Neo-Cons and their view of American and American foreign policy will prevail.

    Many Americans are as uninformed about the “majority rule=minority rights” conflict as the protesters in Cairo, Teheran, Lahore, New Delhi, and elsewhere. The same “majority rule” without “minority rights” that appeal to the redneck Christian Right, also appeals to ignorant, religious conservatives all over the world. They have a vision of democracy in which “freedom” is limited to those who are part of the majority. It doesn’t matter if its Cairo, Iran or Georgia, that view of democracy creates tyranny, not freedom. Neo-Cons understand this dynamic. They use it to appeal to the Christian Right to win elections in the United States. In foreign countries they cleverly support the same view of democracy knowing that the result will be a “majority rule” that will be offensive to American interests and, so, justify “reliable” pro-American tyrants and the view that “these people aren’t ready for democracy.”

    I’m sure from Cheney’s point of view he’s a great guy . A thieving tyrant who’s ripped of his country for billions while keeping his people impoverished and in line with brutality . He’s a true conservative role model , kind of a template for what they’re trying to do over here .

    What is the status of Mubarak’s Piggy Bank! One billion $ U.s or Ten billion U.s.? Thanks U.s. taxpayers! At 84 Mubarak is entitled to a comfy retirement! After all he was our (U.S. + Israel) 800 pound gorilla!

    Right. Well enough to get Halliburton off US soil and to Dubai where it can continue dealing with tyrants like Prez Ahmadnijad. One blood-sucking, oil-loving tyrant to another.

    Yeah, that’s how he’s stashed billions of dollars during his leadership. He’s a good man.

    Sounds like the definition of someone who “matters” in the Republican’s mindset, unlike people who don’t have billions in the bank, stolen or otherwise.

    True. The interesting event is that is, I believe, the first type a presidential special envoy has so completely countermanded his president’s orders and directives, since Averell Harriman did the same to President Kennedy.

    Years back, while I was reading Richard Parker’s brilliant biography on John Kenneth Galbraith, I also happened to be reading the positively spun biography on Averell Harriman (Spanning the Century) by Rudy Abramson, who had complete access to Harriman and his diaries, etc.

    Both books recounted exactly the same thing (in Parker’s chapters covering Galbraith and the Kennedy Administration): Harriman had completely done the opposite of what Kennedy had ordered him to do.

    Shortly thereafter JFK was assassinated. It was so clear that the founders of America’s intelligence establishment, both inside and outside of his administration, were working industriously to interdict all of Kennedy’s actions and programs.

    I think Obama is safe as he has appointed virtually every neocon to his administration, save for one: Dick Cheney.
