WASHINGTON (AP) -- Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton says Vice President Cheney is misrepresenting her request to get Iraq war planning information from the Pentagon.
In a letter to Cheney, she accuses him of offering "inaccuracies" in opposing the request. She was responding to a Cheney comment on CNN that discussing specific troop movement plans with Congress could tip off the enemy. Clinton says in the letter that she had never asked for specifics of troop movements and is, in fact, to get a briefing on the matter from another administration official August second.
The Democratic presidential hopeful has been hammering the Bush administration for two weeks since a top Pentagon aide refused to tell her whether or how the military was planning for the eventual withdrawal of U.S. forces.
