Sorry, Madam Speaker…
It’s hard to argue with the facts.
The democratic plan for Iraq does play into the hands of Al Qaeda no matter how many calls you place to the president.

Dick Cheney correctly called out democrats yesterday on their Iraq War strategy. The democratic planned strategy to cut funds for the troops and bringing on a slow drip humiliating defeat for this country does validate Al Qaeda.
Bin Laden himself back in 1998 said that “America was unable to endure the strikes that were dealt to his army” and would retreat in defeat.
Cheney’s remarks to ABC News are YouTubed HERE. This is what Cheney said about democrats Pelosi and Murtha and their plans for Iraq:
“I think if we were to do what Speaker Pelosi and Congressman Murtha are suggesting, all we’ll do is validate the al Qaeda strategy,” Cheney told ABC News.
“The al Qaeda strategy is to break the will of the American people, knowing they can’t win in a stand-up fight, try to convince us to throw in the towel and come home and then they win because we quit,” he said.
It appears that the new Speaker is upset over the remarks,
It is very clear from past Al Qaeda statements that what the Vice President said was absolutely the truth.
FOX News is reporting that the Speaker even had the nerve to call President Bush and complain:
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Wednesday phoned President Bush to air her complaints over Vice President Dick Cheney’s comments that the Congressional Democrats’ plan for Iraq would “validate the Al Qaeda strategy.”
Pelosi, who said she could not reach the president, said Cheney’s comments wrongly questioned critics’ patriotism and ignored Bush’s call for openness on Iraq strategy.
“You cannot say as the president of the United States, ‘I welcome disagreement in a time of war,’ and then have the vice president of the United States go out of the country and mischaracterize a position of the speaker of the House and in a manner that says that person in that position of authority is acting against the national security of our country,” the speaker said.
Cheney may have been blunt in his remarks but there was nothing he said that wasn’t the truth.
Deal with it.
