Liveblogging the Veep Debate III

Starting off with Iraq. Ah, Bremer and Rumsfeld. Quelle surprise.

Cheney: Immediately placing Iraq in the context of the Global War on Terror. Good. Mentions Abu Nidal whom Saddam probably iced before the invasion to keep him quiet. Connects it to an attack on American soil.

Edwards: Comes off calling Cheney a liar. Bad call. Focus on casualties, but now mentions McCain, Hagel, and Lugar. Better. Also mentions Bremer, but not the context obviously. Goes to credibility on Kerry with other nations.

Cheney: Governance of the Iraqi people is the issue. Iraqi security forces, not others.

Edwards: No connection between Saddam and 9/11. This is incorrect, but Cheney may not be able to challenge here.
