CHENEY THE NUANCED….Dick Cheney, commenting today about the British sailors and marines who were seized by Iran a couple of weeks ago: “There’s considerable evidence that they were, in fact, in Iraqi territorial waters when this happened.”
“Considerable evidence”? Maybe I’m reading too much into this, but does this sound like the Big Time we know and love? Wouldn’t “incontrovertible evidence” or “ironclad proof” be more his style if he did, in fact, believe that the boat was in Iraqi waters? What does his sudden embrace of nuance mean?
