Posted on 06/19/2014 5:48:13 AM PDT by yldstrk
FOX News Megyn Kelly had some tough questions for former Vice President Dick Cheney on Wednesday night, after he and his daughter, Liz, offered a scathing review of the Obama administrations foreign policy.
In your op-ed [in the Wall Street Journal], you write as follows: Rarely has a U.S. president been so wrong about so much at the expense of so many, Kelly said on her show The Kelly File. But time and time again, history has proven that you got it wrong as well sir. Continue Reading Text Size

Kelly then began listing shortcomings of the Bush administration, pointing out Cheneys statements that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction, that the U.S. forces would be considered liberators and that Iraqi insurgency was in the throes in 2005.
Cheney responded that invading Iraq was the right thing and that it would have been irresponsible for us not to act.

“Fair Means Unbalanced”
Meggie, Cheney never claimed to have been right all the time, he claimed no president (which he was not) has ever been wrong more times than Obama
shame on you
I don’t know. When is her contract up, and which channel/network does she want want to move to?
She should have waited to do the interview after watching Hannity’s show. He had an excellent montage of various high profile democrats making the case for going into Iraq. It was priceless.
She doesn’t kiss butt. That’s why her numbers are so high.
I am so sick of that weapons of mass destruction argument! No one EVER points out how much time Saddam Hussein was given to hide and distribute them with other ragheads.
I never thought boots on the ground in Iraq was a good idea.
For the life of me, I can’t understand why Bush thought it was necessary when ...
1. We already had boots on the ground in Afghanistan
2. Sadam’s air force was effectively neutralized
3. Sadam had an iron grip on the Iraqi population and had no qualms about ruthlessly killing any and all opposition, including the islamo-fascists.
4. The Christian population was as secure as anybody else in Iraq.
5. Anything that needed to be done to Iraq could be done from the air or with Black Ops.
6. Iraq had nothing to do with 9-11, other than Saddam celebrating it.
7. Eventually a demonRAT would be elected that would reverse any and all gains made in Iraq, meaning that any American blood shed there would be wasted in vain.
This is from Politico.. so I mistrust it more than Kelly
But did she really used the “no chemical weapons” line with Cheney?
It was Bill Clinton and HilLIARy and Kerry and many other democrats who said the same thing BEFORE Bush was even elected, and there are even pictures of the dead Iraqi people Saddam gassed in his own villages.
Cheney is wrong about Iraq. Democracy building in that region is a dumb idea. Whether its republican or democrat who tries it. Democracy is contrary to their religion. Its not going to work. We got our guys all shot up working on a plan that could never be successful.
Saddam has WMDs; he shipped them to Syria before the war. There is no other explanation for how Syria obtained WMDs.
I saw this segment, and thought that Cheney answered brilliantly.
You can do that with an experienced and intelligent interlocutor like Dick Cheney or a Ted Cruz but you have to be careful if you try it with a George Bush.
She was doing Cheney a favor, she was giving him a microphone and a megaphone. At the end of the interview she gave him softball questions.
If only the mainstream media behaved him him this way we would be in control the White House as well as the Senate.
The way I saw it was that she was asking the questions that others were asking. The questions were asked in a manner that Cheney could defend himself. That became clear to me after the follow up questions. It did not appear to me that they were gotcha questions. That was just my take on the interview.
Stardom is going to her head!
Megan is slowly developing the “O’Reilly syndrome”, becoming obsessed with her own “importance” in her new time slot. Next thing we know, she’ll be writing mindless books and using the last ten minutes of her show hawking them!
I have stopped watching her, and Greta, as their left-lean becomes more pronounced daily. It’s what happens when you put lawyers in charge.
I actually thought it was a fair interview. She always plays devil’s advocate. I think she needed to ask the tough questions, instead of being a Hannity type cheerleader. I mean every poll has a huge majority saying it was a mistake to enter Iraq. And here is the guy who orchestrated it, claiming that Obama is always wrong (which he is). She sort of put him on trial, and allowed him to answer the tough questions. She was respectful, and at the end got into pointing out how Biden claimed Iraq’s success was Obama’s achievement, and how Obama blew it with the status of force issue.
She beats up on both sides equally.
I suppose we’ll never fully know all the “real” reasons Bush felt it was necessary to stick troops on the ground.
According to wiki leaks - Iraq did attempt to purchase yellow cake (contradicting Plame’s hubby)
I’m old enough to remember when Gore tried to appear macho & accuse Bush 41 of not finishing the job & ousting Sadaam.
Sometimes I wonder if there’s something to the theory W was taking care of unfinished business.
