"If you want another terrorist attack in the US, abandon Afghanistan," she said in an interview with Fortune magazine on Tuesday.
Condi's comment recalled Dick Cheney's repeated threats to launch another 9/11 attack on America, most famously his claim on the eve of the 2004 election that if Americans elected John Kerry, they would be hit with another 9/11:
Vice President Dick Cheney on Tuesday warned Americans about voting for Democratic Sen. John Kerry, saying that if the nation makes the wrong choice on Election Day it faces the threat of another terrorist attack.
Though Cheney is already a walking parody of himself, the Onion attempted to satirize Cheney's threat simply by calling it what it was:
Cheney Vows To Attack U.S. If Kerry Elected"If the wrong man is elected in November, the nation will come under a devastating armed attack of an unimaginable magnitude, one planned and executed by none other than myself," Cheney said.
Just to make sure there would be no misunderstanding about who really did 9/11, Cheney did an interview just before leaving office in which he bragged that "9/11 itself" was the greatest achievement of his vice presidency.
