Fox News’ Megyn Kelly rips Dick Cheney for getting Iraq wrong (video)

So this was odd.

The other day, Fox News had Dick Cheney on, along with evil mini-me daughter Liz, to talk about Iraq. Cheney has been leading the Republican party’s push to have America reinvade Iraq, now that insurgents are, yet again, trying to take over the country in the aftermath of the US invasion.

The Cheneys thought Fox would greet them as liberators. But a funny thing happened at the network that’s usually nothing more than a not-very-large appendage of the GOP: journalism.

Megyn Kelly was conducting the interview of the Cheneys, and, like a perfectly-planned invasion gone suddenly terribly wrong, started asking the former vice president a serious, tough, and spot-on question about how he had the temerity to question President Obama’s handling of Iraq when Cheney himself got Iraq so wrong.

Fox News’ Megyn Kelly: “Time and time again, history has proven that you got it wrong as well in Iraq, sir. You said there were no doubts that Hussein had weapons of mass destruction, you said we would be greeted as liberators, you said the Iraq insurgency was in the last throes back in 2005…. With almost a trillion dollars spent there, 4,500 American lives lost there, what do you say to those who say ‘YOU were so wrong about so much, at the expense of so many?'”

It’s about 5 minutes, give or take, in to the Jon Stewart piece on the Cheneys. And is pretty priceless.
