"His meeting was not disturbed and he was not moved." -- Dick Cheney spokeswoman Lea Anne McBride on an explosion that rattled windows at the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad while the vice president was inside.

When Cheney was asked about security conditions himself, he admitted that his firsthand knowledge was nonexistent despite the fact that he was in Baghdad at the time. "Well, I have to rely on reports like everybody else does, obviously," he said. "I've spent today here basically in our embassy and the military headquarters in the Green Zone, so I can't speak from personal experience in terms of what's going on all across Iraq."
