Megyn Kelly to Cheney: You Were Wrong

5

cheneyApparently it’s not just the left up in arms over former Vice President Dick Cheney’s op-ed in The Wall Street Journal. Wednesday night on Fox News, host Megyn Kelly took Cheney to task for writing that “Rarely has a U.S. president been so wrong about so much at the expense of so many.”

Kelly pointedly told Cheney, “But time and time again, history has proven you got it in wrong as well in Iraq, Sir.” She continued: “You said there was no doubt Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction. You said we would be greeted as liberators. You said the Iraq insurgency was in its last throes back in 2005. And you said that our intervention meant extremists would have to rethink their strategy of jihad.”

Cheney responded that he “fundamentally disagrees” with her list, that everybody thought Saddam had weapons, and after the 9/11 attacks “it would have been irresponsible for us not to act.”

Kelly also took Cheney to task for criticizing the president over U.S. forces leaving Iraq, pointing out that it was former President Bush who signed the agreement having all troops leave by end of 2011, and that Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki was the one who did not want forces to stay behind. Read more at Mediate.

  1. YOU KELLY GOT IT WRONG.
    CLINTON STOOD IN FRONT OF TELEVISION AND ALSO SAID IT. ALL THE WORLD SAID IT.
    Weapons were found in syria. Where did they come from? IRAQ ! WHY NOT? because you said no?

    saddam white powdered the kurds…what is that called?
    Obama called the whole economy wrong
    Has there been this many exposes from any other president? Has the economy tanked as long for any other president?
    Has the financial support in the billions to various american companies been made by any other president and remember GM still owes that money but the debit/credit colume has changed places atributing the debt to overseas operations.How about the many other outlandish solar backings all went bankrupt.

    kelly you got it wrong!
    No matter how straight you sit in your chair you still got it wrong

  2. What a misleading headline, as is obvious to anyone who sees the video. It was a question, quoting “critics”, to which he gave a satisfying answer.

  3. To the 16 yr old yeshiva bochur:

    So Cheney was wrong.
    But Obama is wrong NOW.

    But you the 16-yr old yeshiva bachur are even wronger by wasting your time on Cheney or Obama. Your focus should be Abaye & Rava, Rashi & Tosefos.
