Cheney: Lost in Translation

Vice President Dick Cheney says Britain's planned exit from Iraq is a sign of success. But he suggests the US doing the same thing would be a "policy of retreat." And you though the guy just mumbled out of one side of his mouth.

"Well, I look at it and see it is actually an affirmation that there are parts of Iraq where things are going pretty well." -- Vice President Dick Cheney on Britain's planned withdrawal from Iraq

"I want you to know that the American people will not support a policy of retreat." -- Vice President Dick Cheney on an American withdrawal from Iraq
The UK plans to scale back forces from the current 7,100 troops to just 5,000 by the end of summer. All British troops could be out of Iraq by the end of this year. (ABC)
