Cheney Chides Rivals for ‘Undermining’ Troops
Posted on Mar 12, 2007
Vice President Dick Cheney let fly with some harsh words Monday for members of Congress who oppose the Bush administration’s plan to splash out billions more on the Iraq war and who dare to support bringing the troops home soon. “When members speak not of victory but of time limits, deadlines and other arbitrary measures, they are telling the enemy simply to watch the clock and wait us out,” he said at a meeting of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee.

Anti-war lawmakers in Congress are “undermining” U.S. troops in Iraq by trying to limit President Bush’s spending requests for military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan, Vice President Dick Cheney said Monday.
Hitting out at lawmakers who profess to back the troops but oppose Bush’s plans in Iraq, Cheney said proof of their commitment would come as they consider legislation to provide nearly $100 billion for the rest of this year’s costs of the wars.
