sea of Dick Cheney was the misleader in chief prior to the war in and in a recent speech in which he chastised people for suggesting he made yet another whop per of a misleading Those who advocate a sudden withdrawal from Iraq should answer a few simple ques Cheney such as whether the United States vv juld be better off or worse off with terror leaders such as Abu Musab Osama bin Laden or Ayman al Zawahiri in control of Dearly that is akin to saying that if Eliot Ness had nt come Al Capone would have been the dictator of the Unit ed AlZarqawi is a miserable little terrorist with a small band
