Megyn Kelly to Dick Cheney: "Time
and Time Again, History Has Proven
You Got It Wrong" on Iraq

Real Clear Politics, by Ian Schwartz

Original Article

Posted By:Hermoine, 6/19/2014 3:27:13 PM

MEGYN KELLY: In your op-ed, you write as follows: ´Rarely has a U.S. president been so wrong about so much at the expense of so many.´ But time and time again, history has proven that you got it wrong as well, sir. You said there were no doubts that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction. You said we would be greeted as liberators. You said the Iraq insurgency was in its last throes back in 2005. And you said after our intervention, extremists would have to "rethink their strategy of jihad." Now with almost a trillion dollars spent there

Comments:
Oh Megyn...just wants to be so edgy and relevant. Honestly, it´s not the question as much as the response that matters, and I thought Dick Cheney knocked it out of the park -- as usual. So refreshing to hear an adult speak on serious issues. BTW, Megyn, do you know remember video footage (shown on Fox News) of terrorists training in hollowed-out planes and buses in IRAQ? Or that Saddam Hussein was sending sizable checks to the families of suicide bombers in the West Bank and Gaza, or that Saddam Hussein boasted that he was developing nuclear weapons? Perhaps you

OP. I hope you realize Kelly´s job is to ask these questions, and good on her for it. It´s good to allow Cheney to respond to these accusations from the left, as the answers are solid. I wouldn´t say he ´´knocked it out of the park.´´ but it was a clean hit up the middle.

All in power should have to answer tough questions defending their actions. Be thankful Kelly doesn´t roll over for either side.

OP, I totally agree, the Cheney´s nailed it. I was glad Megyn asked such tough questions because those are the same ones the LSM ask and Vice President Cheney has never been able to respond to them.

Yes OP. BOR, Jr. It has taken time but one thing these TV anchors do not realize -- the camera sees everything . We see their attempts to carefully hide emotions, consciously put on weird blank face, their body language, the sometimes faux toughness, etc. It takes time but eventually we see and hear who they are because they can´t hide it. Now she and Doug will REALLY be invited to all the "right" parties. Enjoy Megyn. She thinks she is so smart. She can´t hold a candle to the former Vice-President and he´s too much of a gentleman to lay her out.

Take a look at a map and tell me which nations have the largest eastern and western borders with Iran - one of the three nations constituting the axis of evil. (Iraq and Afghanistan).

As Ann Coulter´s book states, "Shut up and sing", Megyn - shut up and report. Time and time again?????? False statement. Megyn apparently loves her salary more than the truth.

So, with a couple exceptions, the posers on this board want Kelly or other Fox News hosts to lob softball questions if it´s to those on ´´our´´ side?

I don´t know if she was teeing him up, or if she genuinely felt it was wrong to invade Iraq. But his response knocked it out of the ballpark. I didn´t think she had a leg to stand on after reading Cheney´s explanation.

I watched the whole thing and frankly, was disappointed in Megyn´s tone of voice when questioning VP Cheney. I thought she was trying to prove that she can challenge anyone. Haven´t heard her go after any democrat like she did the Cheneys. I half agree with Poster 1, in that Cheney never was allowed to complete an answer from the left wing media. One can ask direct questions without being accusatory.

Irrelevant questions, Megyn.

It was not wrong to invade Iraq; however, it was a mistake to fight the war with the same kind of restrictions as were in place in the Korean conflict, and Vietnam.

When our soldiers were being dragged through the streets of Fallujah without a response by the U.S. forces, the war was lost.

For the record, I don´t mind the question being asked...I think it is the smugness that bothers me. And, probably because, on a personal level, she irritates me (though I know she has many fans). That, and she just leaves out a whole helluva lot in the background of what led up to the 2nd war against Iraq -- and then, what actually happened b./t 2003-2008. For instance, we WERE greeted as liberators. And, we actually had a President, a Sunni, Al-Talibani (sp?) who was bringing the country together. We had put down the insurgency that started in 2005 and by 2008 Bush handed Obama a phenomenal victory in Iraq. The ONLY and LAST thing needed was a status of forces agreement and BFD Biden and Obama couldn´t get that done.

It´s just the smugness of it...the "gotcha" attitude.

They are both right, and wrong at the same time. VP Cheney is correct that action had to be taken against Saddam, the administration´s choice of mission was not correct for two reasons; 1). Iraq was/is not a unified country without the rule of a dictator, 2). All Republican administrations are eventually replaced by a democratic one thus the peace is almost always lost. In hindsight our only correct action (hindsight is 20-20) was to let Saddam (and all others in the region) know we would not get involved in their governments or lack of, but we would and will bomb them into the 7th century and leave them to fend for themselves. Now that we can provide for all our energy needs (or we could) that is our best course.

#13 -- This isn´t entirely directed at you, but this was not some war that HAPPENED A LONG TIME AGO -- for crying out loud...we answered what happened to our men in Fallujah. We went back in and took Fallujah and KICKED the terrorists out. Please, please, please people...by 2008, Iraq was given, wrapped in a nice pretty package to Obama. He screwed it up big time. It is revisionist history to act like the Bush/Cheney administration handed it over in shambles and that Obama has just been struggling to keep it altogether for 6 years.

Don´t WE all remember Obama (not Bush) declaring victory in Iraq and smuggly ending the "bad war?"

My understanding of why we invaded Iraq was that 911 showed that the terrorists would murder countless men, women and children without remorse and would detonate nukes in our cities. So, to avoid that eventuality with the follow on need for us to nuke the ME, we invaded to drain the swamp. We had the legal framework in place for action there.

I believe the Dims voted nearly unanimously to do so.

The mistake made, as someone pointed out above, was to believe that the dims wouldn´t exploit every set back, every deviation from perfection, to benefit themselves.

When hilary piaps floated the idea of legal action to declare her vote to invade to be void, I knew we as a country were no longer capable of serious acts.

Live it up! The borrowed money will never run out!

I have said it before, and I keep getting proven right.

Kelly has an ugly side to her personality. You see flashes of it. Remember how ugly she got, literally, when some "man" posited that men and women are, shockingly, wired differently?

If looks could kill.

Just because you are on Fox, does not mean you aren´t a bit weird, and she is.

May I add something? Of course Dick Cheney can take it. He wasn´t a bit bothered by Megyn. He is privvy to the truth and he realizes what the game is after decades playing with media folk way smarter than Kelley. I adore his sly smile. Nobody wants softballs to conservatives -- just asking for even-handed toughness.

She lost me when she interviewed her husband on air.

Greta is much smarter, sharper, more direct, less impressed with herself, more job-focused, and more "Fair and Balanced"...
Plus Greta doesn´t wear cocktail dresses and sit at a glass table to report the news... As mom [a southern belle from Dallas] would say, not "ladylike" to dress like that... Charm and deference is a lost art, sadly... Audrey Hepburn had it, as did Nancy Reagan and Margaret Thatcher. Have to agree here with Rush, TV just about worthless, other than some sports ... and HGTV!

RE: Megyn Kelly, I thought the way the question was asked was a bit snarky. As to wardrobe, most on-air talent do not get to choose what they wear, or only have a choice from within a group of garments. Kelly is an attractive young woman, but I would prefer to see her dressed a bit more professionally. That goes for most of the female on-air talent at Fox.

And evidence of chemical weapons was found in various places in Iraq! Besides which, in the run-up to the invasion, what do you think was in all those trucks that were allowed to go from Iraq to Syria´s Asad regime? Tinker toys and bottled water? Also remember that the Clint-toon "administration" made regime change in Iraq a stated goal of US foreign policy because the Hussein Baath Party regime illegally holds weapons of mass destruction which they have used against their own (Kurdish) people.

#3, BOR, Jr. fits like a tight cocktail dress. (h/t #21) Megyn is first and foremost all about Megyn and what she thinks will burnish her star. She is an attractive young woman, but her self-awareness is distracting and off-putting. Agree about Greta, #21.

I appreciate tough questions being asked of all people in power. I appreciate them having time to answer, and to receive tough follow-up questions when needed.
That wasn´t a tough question. It was a smart-aleck accusation that was totally unnecessary to get the same truthful, reasoned response she would have received from VP Cheney had she truly asked a tough question.

One wonders if she cared about the response half as much as she cared about how impressive she thought she would be taking that attitude with VP Cheney. Agree with those who know that Dick Cheney could have answered her in a way that would have left her much less impressed with herself if he was less of a gentleman. I don´t agree with him on every little thing, but I know he is a wise and intelligent man, and I trust him and his judgment far more than most. I would have loved him to be POTUS.

Good comments, OP.

I almost fell off my chair when Megyn asked this question . Unless she asked knowing what VP Cheney would answer. And it was the truth. GWB had 40 countries backing us up. We were not the only nation that went into Iraq. Also,every dang democrat voted to invade. Clinton Kerry Pelosi all stated that Iraq did ave WMD. remember the "I voted for it before I voted against it!" line from Pelosi
And it was a good long year or more when all these nations invaded. To long of a time in MHO..should have gone in right after we found out who hit our towers. 1 week after we got hit.

In answering Megyn Kelly´s question, Cheney didn´t dispute the premise of the question (that: " ..time and time again, history has proven that you got it wrong" on Iraq). Instead, Cheney attempted to rationalize why he got it wrong. So, by implication, Cheney is admitting that he got it wrong, but there were good reasons why he got it wrong. That´s progress; may be he will eventually explicitly admit that he got it wrong.

I´m not a fan of Megyn Kelly. She´s bright enough, but a little too self-satisfied for my taste. Agree, #19.

As to her wardrobe, #24, perhaps there is a stylist choosing clothing. But a marquee talent like Kelly certainly can make her wishes known as to wardrobe--and make them stick. A little more modesty would enhance her stature.

It´s Not Just George Soros Anymore

Earlier this year, the most reliable way for a billionaire to make the headlines was to compare suggested tax increases to Nazi Germany. Lately, though, the more interesting shift in the politics of the plutocracy has been more genteel. There will be more Hitler analogies, of course, but another camp among the superrich is starting to tack in the opposite direction. Some plutocrats accept the evidence that capitalism is no longer working for the middle class, and are trying to figure out what to do about that. It is not just George Soros, the hedge-fund billionaire, who cheerfully describes himself

Cops: Adult son kills

Two people were stabbed to death inside a DeKalb County home today, allegedly by their adult son using samurai swords, according to police. “It’s a pretty horrific scene inside,” DeKalb police Chief Cedric Alexander said. A family member stopped by to visit at the Pheasant Drive home, off Boring Road, around 4 p.m. and found the couple dead, Alexander said. The two, a 75-year-old man and a 73-year-old woman, may have been dead for several hours, he said.

The new book by economist Thomas Piketty, "Capital in the Twenty-First Century" is a runaway hit, perched at the top of Amazon.com´s bestsellers chart and temporarily sold out on the Web site.-snip-Piketty, already widely cited for his work on income inequality, has clearly touched a nerve. The book argues that the underlying mechanisms of capitalism tend towards massive inequality. Piketty argues that the era between 1930 and 1975 -- often hailed for the way in which wealth was broadly shared -- was actually a departure from the norm.

Ann Furedi, of BPAS, said the law does not prevent women from choosing a termination on the grounds of gender and she even compared it to abortion after rape. Mrs Furedi´s comments come weeks after it was disclosed that the CPS had decided not to prosecute two doctors who were exposed by a Daily Telegraph investigation arranging terminations purely because the unborn baby was a girl. A group of 50 MPs, drawn from across the party divide, then wrote to this newspaper warning that the decision was a “step back in the fight for gender equality” and effectively changes the law without

The phone call to police was a plea to help save a family held by smugglers. But when authorities raided the south Harris County home which they believed held the woman and children Wednesday, they found 110 people imprisoned in a packed, rancid "stash house" where smugglers had locked them away pending payment for their freedom. A tipster had told authorities the night before that he was being extorted by smugglers, and feared for the safety of relatives from Central America. The tipster had said that a coyote drop of the mother, her 7-year-old daughter and 5-year-old son was supposed to

A Fox News exclusive reported this morning by Jana Winter inexplicably buried the lede. Winter reports that several dead children have been discovered “washed up along the riverbank” of the Rio Grande, but fails to note that there have been no reports by the Obama administration on this. This indicates a pattern of covering up dead illegal alien kids by the Obama administration. It was two weeks before news was reported on the sole child death acknowledged by the Obama administration, Gilberto Ramos, a 15 year-old boy from Guatemala whose body was found in the Texas brush dead from the

The program is a component of Mrs. Obama’s Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. The new government regulations require snack items served in public schools to have less than two hundred calories. That includes vending machines, lunch rooms and other campus food venues. And that’s really bad news for kids at South Carolina’s Socastee High School.

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future.

WASHINGTON — It was an enduring image of his presidency: a chastened Bill Clinton walking his dog while wife Hillary keeps her distance as the family leaves town at the height of the Monica Lewinsky scandal — but it was all part of a contrived public-repentance campaign, according to a new book. With Bill on the skids and his wife’s future prospects on the line, it was necessary for the pubic to see the president being punished, said Weekly Standard online editor Daniel Halper in his new book, “Clinton, Inc.: The Audacious Rebuilding of a Political Machine.” “They understood that
