Cheney Claims at Odds (Again!) with the Truth

Vice President Dick (Chicken Hawk) Cheney keeps sticking his foot in his mouth about terrorism and Iraq.

The VP's latest embarrassment came yesterday on Rush Limbaugh's radio show. Cheney once again made the claim that there was a link between Saddam Hussein's Iraq and the September 11 terrorists. It's a great talking point, but it isn't true. In fact, it's a claim that has been repeatedly and thoroughly debunked.

As numerous news outlets and blogs are noting today, a Pentagon report released yesterday provides still more evidence against the Saddam-terrorist link. Other investigations, including the 9/11 Commission, also debunked the Cheney claim.

The Huffington Post sums up the latest Cheney stumble over the truth succinctly: "Cheney v. the Pentagon."

Since Cheney once served as Secretary of Defense, this is surely a very bad sign for the VP.
