The top of [Cheney's] speech is White House's the most desperate lashing out against war critics to date. Going further than just accusing critics of "re-writing history," Cheney implies that they are somehow sabotaging the war itself:
The saddest part is that our people in uniform have been subjected to these cynical and pernicious falsehoods day in and day out. American soldiers and Marines are out there every day in dangerous conditions and desert temperatures – conducting raids, training Iraqi forces, countering attacks, seizing weapons, and capturing killers – and back home a few opportunists are suggesting they were sent into battle for a lie.
It seems to us that our soldiers are probably busy enough with the day-to-day business of survival that Harry Reid's latest speech is not their primary concern. But even if it is: I imagine critics saying that Bush mislead us isn't nearly as infuriating as the fact that he did.
