Full Transcript and Video: Obama Extends US Presence in Afghanistan
THE PRESIDENT: Good morning. Last December — more than 13 years after our nation was attacked by al Qaeda on 9/11 — America’s combat mission in Afghanistan came to a responsible end. That milestone was achieved thanks to the courage and the skill of our military, our intelligence, and civilian personnel. They served there with extraordinary skill and valor, and it’s worth remembering especially the more than 2,200 American patriots who made the ultimate sacrifice in Afghanistan.

VIDEO: Fox's Megyn Kelly (Sort of) Calls Out Dick Cheney for Iraq Mess
Even Fox's Megan Kelly was incredulous about some of the things Dick Cheney was saying about the current crisis in Iraq. Seems the man has forgotten his own culpability in starting the war, and his own mendacity in selling it to the American people.
