Fact checking Dick Cheney!

It's astonishing to watch Cheney attempt to back track from his repeated public statements that there was a link between al Qaeda and Iraq.

Here, Chris Matthews and two reporters go through the myriad of lies which Cheney has told and is still telling. For instance, he has recently set himself up as the CIA's greatest defender, despite the fact that both he and Libby went to war with the CIA, claiming that it was somehow their incompetence which was behind their failure to prove that Saddam had WMD. To this end, he even outed Valerie Plame, a covert CIA agent.

As Matthews rightly states, Cheney behaves as if the rest if us have no memory whatsoever.
