Cheney Fears Iraq Will Be a ‘Waste’

It’s been awhile since we last heard from Dick Cheney, but the former vice president emerged on Monday to attack the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraqi cities over the next 24 hours. “One might speculate that insurgents are waiting as soon as they get an opportunity to launch more attacks,” he told The Washington Times’ America’s Morning News radio show. "I hope Iraqis can deal with it. At some point they have to stand on their own. But I would not want to see the U.S. waste all the tremendous sacrifice that has gotten us to this point."
