Megyn Kelly to Cheney: You Were Wrong

Apparently it’s not just the left up in arms over former Vice President Dick Cheney’s op-ed in The Wall Street Journal. Wednesday night on Fox News, host Megyn Kelly took Cheney to task for writing that “Rarely has a U.S. president been so wrong about so much at the expense of so many.” As Kelly pointedly told Cheney, “But time and time again, history has proven you got it in wrong as well in Iraq, Sir.” She continued: “You said there was no doubt 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 that our intervention meant extremists would have to rethink their strategy of jihad.” Cheney responded that he “fundamentally disagrees” with her list, that everybody thought Saddam had weapons, and after the 9/11 attacks “it would have been irresponsible for us not to act.” Kelly also took Cheney to task for criticizing the president over U.S. forces leaving Iraq, pointing out that it was former President Bush who signed the agreement having all troops leave by end of 2011, and that Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki was the one who did not want forces to stay behind.
