A good report:
The Washington Post
has an article
that reviews Cheney's appearance on Meet the Press. It covers some more topics than our quick analysis (below). Highly recommended. It catches some remarks that we overlooked, e.g.:
Cheney was less forthcoming when asked about Saudi Arabia's ties to al Qaeda and the Sept. 11 hijackers. "I don't want to speculate," he said, adding that Sept. 11 is "over with now, it's done, it's history and we can put it behind us."
Put it behind us? If only it was that easy for Bush.
ADDENDUM: Josh Marshall of TPM has some sharp comments
about Cheney bringing up Mohammad Atta yet again - and not squelching the belief that Saddam is connected to 9/11.CORRECTION:
We agree with Demagogue
that the quote (above) in the Washington Post
was misleading and unfair to Cheney.
