Cheney Misled GOP Leaders, New Book Says

A GOP congressional leader who was wavering on giving President Bush authority to wage war in late 2002 said Vice President Cheney misled him by saying that Iraqi President Saddam Hussein had direct personal ties to al-Qaeda terrorists and was making rapid progress toward a suitcase nuclear weapon.

That's one of the revelations in the new book, "Angler: The Cheney Vice Presidency," by The Post's Barton Gellman.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Barton. Do NOT accept that invitation to go hunting with the VP.
