WASHINGTON, D.C.– Jim Manley, Spokesman for Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, released the following statement today after comments made by Vice President Dick Cheney:
Vice President Cheney should be the last person to lecture anyone on how leaders should make decisions.
Leaders should make decisions based on facts and reality, two words that seem to be foreign to the Vice President
This is the same guy who said Iraq has weapons of mass destruction and that we would be greeted as liberators. And it’s the same guy who continues to assert that Saddam Hussein had links to al Qaeda long after our own intelligence agency conclusively refuted this notion. To suggest he lacks credibility would be an understatement.
The Vice President’s and others’ attacks on those who disagree with their failed policies are signs of desperation. They are lashing out because they know the days are numbered for their failed strategy and that the American people and a bipartisan majority are determined to force this Administration to change course in Iraq.
