Which is why he shot The Beast that funny look when she *told* him to go to Iraq for a visit! Someone leaked to her.

Now will we hear that Hillary controls Cheney?!

He's checking on Haliburton and the oil supplies. After all, he's retiring in 3 years.

Hillary's spies knew Cheyne was enroute to Baghdad, so she puts out her "order". How small of that witch! She thinks stunts like this will put her in the White House, which shows how stupid she thinks Americans are. Only her brain-dead admirers would fall for this stunt, since a visit like Cheyne's takes weeks to prepare.

I would too. Not believing many coincidences, Hillary's "advising" the Vice President to go to Iraq just two days ago infuriates me. Those responsible for his security surely raised an eyebrow before the VP left on his secret visit.

I wonder if Cheney dragged McCain along to see the handy work of those he is working to protect now.....heads cut off, bodies scattered over the streets where they have been murdered.

Would be a good education for that thoughtful, sensitive war hero McCain.

So it was absolutely true that Hilary got wind of it and tried to either send a message to the administration or make political hay of it by suggesting it to him in public the other day. What an absolute jackass that woman is.

Godspeed, Mr. Vice-President. Stay safe. We know how the troops love you. And you've done more for the military in your career than Hil's ever even thought about.

Hillary told Cheney to go to Iraq.

How much you want to bet that Senator Clinton got wind of the trip and spouted off to make it look like Cheney was doing what she suggested?

Trips to Iraq aren't put together in days.

Hillary put Cheney in a terrible position by pointing out he had never been to Iraq when all along she probably know via the grapevine he was planning to go.

What was Cheney supposed to do, blab that in was in fact going to Iraq and breech his security.

Hillary of all people, should know better since she was the first lady bitch.

Just proves that she is willing to put people at risk to promote her personal agenda and probably the dangerous women in Washington.

Hillary will take credit but clearly knew. And Cheney knew she knew; that's why the article written yesterday and posted on FR was worded rather oddly and it said that Hillary's suggestion that Cheney go to Iraq was met with a stare.

This should be Topic #1 on Rush, Hannity, Laura and all the conservative talk shows tomorrow...that Hillary cannot be trusted with top secret information and should never be considered presidential material because apparently this woman can't keep a secret. Make her pay "big time" for this stunt.

That's a good point, this was probably on Cheney's calendar for some time. Just reinforces my opinion of Hillary as the lowest of the low.

I think Hillary gotcha on this one. Through her spy network she found out Cheney was going to Iraq. Then she advises Cheney to go, and so when he does go, Hillary and/or her supporters say Cheney took her advice.

No kidding. These domestic Bolsheviks know that to impeach (read: overthrow) the President, they need to get rid of Cheney first. It wouldn't surprise me a bit if potential assassins have been tipped off. I will hold my breath until this man gets back.

This had been planned long before ole crusty told him to go. In fact, she had probably been briefed on it privately and then grandstanded by telling him to go so that it would look like he took her advice.

Julian Phillips on F&F just mentioned the that: "Of course, Senatory Clinton recommended that Cheney go to Iraq". What a joke he is.

Good on you, VP Cheney.

Obviously, has nothing to do with Hil's suggestion. This had to be a long planned trip to coincide with the national elections in Iraq.

Good grief!!Do you mean to say that you cannot tell a political maneuver when you see one? Do you REALLY believe Billary didn't know he was going anyway?

How did she know Phillips? And why the heck didn't she keep her maw shut? Maybe because the Veep's security wasn't nearly as important to her as trying to score political points? Yup, really praiseworthy.

I'm not really surprised by the fact she know he was planning a trip. After all, I'm sure the Washington bueacarcy is still filled with Clinton sycophants from eight years of Caligula rule

What does surprise me is she is willing to expose him like that.

Her handlers will say it was a "surprising coincidence" but she's glad he took her advice

Well, there is that pesky file cabinet filled with stolen FBI files to keep her detractors in line.

Hillary must be feeling pretty empowered to so blatantly diss the VP

This is no surprise: A post I posted earlier.
Americas Spy Agencies are apparently running the country and they in unison with the Democrats are trying to overthrow our country and install a dictator.Cases in point: The leak of enfo to the press on the intercept of foreign telephone calls to the US from Al Queida. A lot of the Senate already knew this and if that is the case why do some Senators run around acting as though it is news and serious and gives the rise not to vote for the Patriot Act extension.
Next, remember Hilliary a few days back calling on Cheney to go to Iraq. These are not spur of the moment trips and can not be planned as such. It was the Clintons and Democrat way of showing they have a mole deep within the White House and either to make her look smart or to have something happen to Cheney. Folks, America does not have a secure government and we are in the process of being overthrown. We had better awaken.
