it seems like the press is trying to actually do it's job. Russet made Cheney look like he belonged in a rubber room too. My favorite was when Russet asked him about all the phony lies Cheney had been telling about why we invaded Iraq that were exploded by the new Senate Report, Cheney got all fumbly, started to repeat one of them and caught himself, and then said "we know he was harboring Abu Nidal!" because now "Zaquari" doesn't work anymore. Abu Nidal was some 60's commie radical in his 80's that Saddam pretty much locked up in Baghdad under house arrest like fifteen years ago. It's getting harder and harder for these guys to invent this shit.
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
