Now, I can understand a desire to paint things as rosey as they can, but does this man really believe that there have been NO blunders in Iraq???
Cheney: Talk of blunders in Iraq is 'hogwash':
In an interview with CNN's Wolf Blitzer, conducted a day after Bush delivered his State of the Union address, Cheney was asked to respond to some Republicans in Congress who "are now seriously questioning your credibility, because of the blunders and the failures."
To that, Cheney answered, "Wolf, Wolf, I simply don't accept the premise of your question. I just think it's hogwash."
Come on, 'dead-eye' Dick, can't you even admit that the blanket removal of ALL Baathists from their government posts was an abject failure? This damage done with this move is still felt throughout Iraq? Can't you even admit that the move to boost the # of troops should have been done at the start of the war??? I KNOW you'd never admit that the intel was a bungled fiasco!
What is scary, is Cheney claims that Saddam would be in a nuclear arms race right now if he were still in power. Um, Veep, don't you understand, you need more than just a few irrigation pipes to build a nuclear program, let alone developing nuclear weapons.
These guys just won't let go of this whole "Iraq was developing weapons of mass destruction' bit. It has been debunked repeatedly, Dick. Pay attention to news other than your buddies at Fox every once in a while...
