Hadley defends Cheney's " Last Throes" statement
Hadley is making the rounds today. For some reason his talking points were a little off in this exchange.
WMP a little later Download -QT the servers might be down for a few minutes.
Think Progress has full exchange posted.
WALLACE: But, Mr. Hadley, with respect, I dont think you answered my question. Was the vice president mistaken last May when he talked about an insurgency in its last throes, given the fact that almost 500 American troops have been killed since then?
HADLEY: The violence is continuing, as I said in my answer to the prior question. We have made clear we thought the violence was probably going to go up in this period.
An upswing in violence sure indicates to me that the insurgents are giving up.
