"There's overwhelming evidence there was a connection between Al Qaeda and the Iraqi government," Cheney said in an interview on National Public Radio. "I am very confident that there was an established relationship there."
That assertion appeared at odds with the recent words of other senior administration officials, including Secretary of State Colin L. Powell, who said in an interview this month that he had "not seen smoking-gun, concrete evidence" of connections between Iraq and Al Qaeda.
Somebody's lyin', for Chrissake! Either that or it depends on what the meanings of "overwhelming evidence" and "smoking gun, concrete evidence" are. Anybody want to go back to the days of it depends on what the meaning of "is" is?
That's not the only lie Cheney tells, either. The infamous trailers, "We found them. We found the weapons of mass destruction," whose purpose is strongly disputed, which even David Kay refuses to say are biological weapons labs, are back. Cheney deems their existence "conclusive evidence." He's either a liar, delusional, or a fockin' idiot.

I took the name Phaedrus from Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance. Not that I'm as smart as that Phaedrus, but I am a ghost. Sort of.
I started doing odd jobs at a motel when I was 14. I lasted one day at a McDonald's, quit, lasted a lot longer at Taco Bell. I've been a gas station attendant, janitor, die cast production worker, day laborer, course maintenance at a miniature golf course, warehouse, union janitor, cabbie, statistical clerk, pool cleaner, working homeless for a few weeks (day labor), and several other things I can't remember. And I've survived. Sort of. I'm not a Marxist, but I am a genuine member of the lumpen proletariat.
