Former Vice President Dick Cheney and his daughter Liz appeared on Megyn Kelly’s show The Kelly File on Wednesday to discuss their launch of a new organization, The Alliance for a Strong America, aimed at “preserving freedom and restoring American strength and power in the wake of the Obama administration’s national security failures.”

The father-daughter duo also were on the show to discuss an op-ed they had written for the Wall Street Journal titled “The Collapsing Obama Doctrine“. The piece was critical of Obama’s handling of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and implied that Obama’s foreign policy has played a part in leading to the current crisis in Iraq. “He seems blithely unaware, or indifferent to the fact, that a resurgent al Qaeda presents a clear and present danger to the United States of America,” wrote Cheney.

“Too many times to count, Mr. Obama has told us he is “ending” the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan—as though wishing made it so. His rhetoric has now come crashing into reality.”

Cheney’s op-ed spurred a response from Paul Waldman, who wrote a rebuttal for The Washington Post. Kelly read an excerpt on air for Cheney: “There is not a single person in America…who has been more wrong and more shamelessly dishonest on the topic of Iraq than Dick Cheney. And now, as the cascade of misery and death and chaos he did so much to unleash rages anew, Cheney has the unadulterated gall to come before the country and tell us that it’s all someone else’s fault.” 

Kelly then asked, “The suggestion then is that you caused this mess, Mr. Vice President, what say you?” Once again, Cheney boldly defended going into Iraq and made the same criticisms about Obama’s decisions regarding Iraq.

It was after Cheney’s repetitive defense of the Iraq war that Kelly went on to challenge him concerning statements he has made in the past: “But time and time again, history has proven that you got it wrong as well in Iraq, sir. You said there was no doubt Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction. You said we would be greeted as liberators. You said the Iraq insurgency was in its last throes back in 2005, and you said that after our intervention, extremists would have to quote ‘rethink their strategy of jihad.’ Now, with almost a trillion dollars spent there, with 4,500 American lives lost there, what do you say to those who say you were so wrong about so much at the expense of so many?”

“No, I just fundamentally disagree with you,” Cheney replied.

Kelly’s confrontation ended with that question, but it’s come as a surprise to many that Kelly briefly scrapped with Cheney in an unlikely outlet.
