Cheney Pushback 2.0

Posted by on November 21 at 10:16 AM

Dick Cheney gave another speech today in which he blasted critics of the Iraq war, though he turned down the volume a bit from last week and didn’t slam anti-war Congressman John Murtha, perhaps because of the thinking expressed in this anonymous Republican quote, which comes from the Wall Street Journal via The Note:

“If the House Republicans want to make Jack Murtha the face of the Democratic Party, then Republicans will really be trounced next year.”

What did Cheney say in his speech? Well, this caught my eye:

”The flaws in the intelligence are plain enough in hindsight. But any suggestion that prewar information was distorted, hyped or fabricated by the leader of the nation is utterly false,” Cheney said.

For one rebuttal, please direct your attention to this article in the Sunday LA Times, which I posted about yesterday.
