Press Release
Washington, D.C. - House Speaker Nancy Pelosi released the following statement today on comments by Vice President Cheney:

'Vice President Cheney continues to question the patriotism of those of us in Congress who challenge the Bush Administration's misguided policies in Iraq, but his latest attack is beneath the office of the Vice President, especially at a time of war.

'Mischaracterizations by the Vice President will not dissuade Congress from developing, on a bipartisan basis, a responsible new direction for U.S. policy in Iraq that brings our troops home safely and soon.  I hope the President will repudiate and distance himself from the Vice President's remarks.'
