    Cheney defends the war 

    Vice President Dick Cheney defended the war in Iraq at the fund-raiser at the Minneapolis Hilton. Two years ago, in an appearance at the same hotel, he talked about the Bush administration's conviction that weapons of mass destruction in the hands of terrorists would "expose this nation and the civilized world to the worst of all imaginable horrors."

    Cheney said some of what the administration feared about Iraq is being substantiated. "Already our inspectors have discovered a lot about what the dictator was up to, and it confirms a lot of what we thought before the war," Cheney said.

    "We have found the labs and the dual-use facilities that could be used to produce chemical and biological weapons."

    Referring to international criticism of the U.S. war in Iraq, Cheney said the United States "will never seek a permission slip" to defend the security of this country.

    "In the war against terrorism, we have only one option," he said. "We must take the fight to the enemy."

    - Jim Ragsdale and Patrick Sweeney, St. Paul Pioneer Press
