Rumsfeld/Cheney Called "War Criminal" at CPAC
The efforts by pro-war conservatives to control the debate continue to be frustrated. The antiwar heckling by libertarians of Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld at CPAC is getting much media coverage. This story is from CBS:
. The crowd was on its feet, some cheering"Cheney for president!" The boos from CPAC's libertarian contigent continued and at times interrupted Cheney's remarks.
"America is stronger and more secure" because of Rumsfeld's service, Cheney said, prompting one person to loudly shout,"Where's bin Laden at!"
Some of the vice president's supporters shouted,"Shut up!" and started a loud chant of"USA, USA!"
The jeering continued, with some yelling"draft dodger!" at Cheney.
