"Dan Bartlett Explains It All"
Counselor to the President Dan Bartlett, CNN American Morning, 6/24/05:
There is no one else in this administration besides the president who is more relied and more realistic about the enemy we face than Dick Cheney. He gets it. He understands it.
Vice President Dick Cheney, Meet the Press, 3//16/03:
[W]e will, in fact, be greeted as liberators. . . . I think it will go relatively quickly, . . . (in) weeks rather than months.
If Cheney is the most realistic person in the Bush administration, it’s not hard to understand why there are so many problems in Iraq.
