From ABC News (March 19, 2008):
Five years after the start of the war in Iraq, Vice President Dick Cheney offered a positive assessment of the current situation and called last year’s troop surge a “major success.”
“On the security front, I think there’s a general consensus that we’ve made major progress, that the surge has worked. That’s been a major success,” Cheney told ABC News’ Martha Raddatz during an exclusive interview in Oman.
When asked how that assessment comports with recent polls that show about two-thirds of Americans say the fight in Iraq is not worth it, Cheney replied, “So?”
