Fact-checking the delusional GOP

Living in the delusional mind of Dick Cheney (Click here to read more)

 Dick Cheney gets three "Pinocchios" over bogus missile defense claim: On Fox News Sunday, the former vice president claimed President Obama 86ed a missile defense plan at "the mere request" of Russian President Putin. The Factchecker at the Washington Post calls that the "talking point that will not die.'

    Given that former Defense Secretary Gates, who served with Cheney, sharply disputes the notion that Obama dropped the defense plan in response to Russian pressure-or a "mere request' from Putin-it's a bit amazing that Cheney is still trying to argue this point. Gates's memoir is often tough on Obama, giving his account of this particular issue additional credibility.
