Cheney Moves the Goalposts

In his mind, it's not even about Iraq, and it's not about whether the troops can leave this year. No, son -- it's much bigger than that:

On CBS News' "Face the Nation," Mr. Cheney sought to place the war in a broader context. "It's not just about Iraq, it's not about just today's situation in Iraq," he said. "It's about where we're going to be 10 years from now in the Middle East and whether or not there's going to be hope and the development of the governments that are responsive to the will of the people, that are not a threat to anyone, that are not safe havens for terror or manufacturers of weapons of mass destruction."
Everyone who thought on March 19, 2003 that the US was embarking on a 10-year plan to democratize the Middle East raise your hands.
