Sean Penn: Dick Cheney, G.W. Bush 'Invented' ISIS

By    |   Friday, 20 Mar 2015 06:35 PM

Actor Sean Penn gave a "shout-out" this week to former Vice President Dick Cheney to thank him for, Penn said, inventing the Islamic State (ISIS).

"I saw backstage in your opening monologue that you mentioned Dick Cheney, this kind of embittered bacteria of humanity," Penn told comedian Conan O'Brien on Thursday night during an appearance on "Conan" on TBS.

"I wanted to give him the credit, since you mentioned him. I mean these are the guys, he and President [George W.] Bush and some others, are really that which invented . . . ISIS," he said.

"They really are that which created it. So, I wanted to give him a shout-out, 'Thanks for that!'"

Penn then talked about Harvey Milk, the openly gay member of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors who was assassinated while in office and whom the actor played in the 2008 movie "Milk."

"Then we have people like Harvey Milk, who were beautiful, brilliant, impactful guys," he said.

"No good deed will go unpunished, and then you got the Cheneys," he added.
