Well, we're agreed on that.
Now don't you think it is a silly, trivial, and fruitless exercise for some people to insist that Cheney said that Iraq was involved on 9/11? Apparently it cannot be proven and in fact, every effort of proof has simply reinforced the opposite -- that Cheney never alleged that relationship.
It seems to me that people want to tie Cheney to a lie so badly that they believe something which, though untrue, seems like SHOULD be true.
Like Dan Rather and the bit about having information on his active duty service and reserve service. Remember how people wanted to believe that story so badly that for months, they refused to believe that Rather's source was a fraud. I'll bet there are still people drinking that Koolaide.
Or the Vince Foster Koolaide. Or the Obama birth certiicat Koolaide. Etc.
There are enough facts around these people that fabrications are redundant. Just stick with proven facts and let the unproven alone.
Cut the crap. Cheney did nothing more than to parse his words in a skillful politician's way. To compare his act of treason with liars and rumor-mongers, insults liars and rumor mongers.
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.
