Must have packed his Airstream because Cheney has made a surprise visit to Iraq which is “aimed at redoubling efforts to end divisive infighting among Iraq’s
ethnic factions” according to WaPo.
Cocker [U.S. ambassador to Iraq] told reporters traveling with Cheney that urging the
parliament to stay in session through these difficult times was clearly
on the vice president’s agenda.
“For the Iraqi parliament to take
a two-month vacation in the middle of summer is impossible to
understand,” said Crocker, who traveled with Cheney from Washington.
message with Iraqi leaders, according to a senior administration
official who briefed reporters, was to be: “We’ve all got challenges
together. We’ve got to pull together. We’ve got to get this work done.
It’s game time.”
Hmmm a message of not taking summer vacation at a difficult time…in fact Game Time. That’s just a wee bit ironic coming from the guy who was pissed that he had to cut his vacation short due to America’s greatest natural disaster (man made in NOLA)
When asked by a reporter why he did not return from his vacation
earlier than last Thursday, three days after the hurricane [Katrina] hit, the
vice president replied: “I came back four days early.”
