What's With Cheney?
Last August, Vice President Cheney said, "..there is no doubt that Saddam Hussein now has weapons of mass destruction."
As everyone on Earth now knows, there weren't any. A large inspection team sent to hunt for WMDs has just returned reporting none found: the report's release is now delayed indefinitely.
Yesterday, President Bush again linked Iraq with the 9-11 attack, which has been his sales pitch while ignoring the real attacker.
Last Sunday, the Vice President repeated the old, never-proven assertion that Saddam Hussein had a relationship with Al Qaeda, "that stretched back through most of the decade the '90s."
An editorial in the L.A. Times said, "Cheney seems stuck in a time warp" still claiming that Americans are being welcomed as "liberators." The Times' editorial was titled "Cheney in Wonderland."
The Wall Street Journal reported this week that many Iraqis, waiting for their lives to improve, have given up hope.
Maybe Iraq is not a tarbaby. However, you don't see it in the numbers, and Mr. Cheney's disproved claims cannot change that.
