Cashing in

Series of car bombs rock Iraqi capital:

Army General John Abizaid, who as head of Central Command is the top US commander in the Middle East, declined to endorse Vice-President Dick Cheney's assessment that Iraq's insurgency was in its "last throes". He said more foreign fighters were coming into Iraq than six months ago.

"There's a lot of work to be done against the insurgency," Abizaid said.

Disputing Cheney is like arguing with fools and liars. Pointless.

Why would he (Cheney) say such a thing?
