Cheney shrugs off 1994 remarks about Iraq
A local CBS affiliate who called Vice President Cheney's office asking why Cheney said in 1994 that the US should not invade Iraq actually got a reply.
"He was not Vice President at the time, it was after he was Secretary of Defense," a spokesperson told CBS 5 San Francisco. "I don't have any comment."
Got that? His remarks don't matter because he was only Secretary of Defense.
And I guess that's not a whole fourth branch of Government like the Vice-President is, so what the hell?
