From the Annals of Revisionist History, we bring you Vice President Dick Cheney at last night's annual dinner of the Conservative Political Action Conference. After laying out the parade of horribles that could occur if the United States were to withdraw from Iraq, Cheney declared to applause and then laughter: "In these circumstances, it's worth reminding ourselves that, like it or not, the enemy we face in the war on terror has made Iraq the primary front in that war. To use a popular phrase, this is an 'inconvenient truth.'"
