Some Banter

The Pentagon deleted from a public transcript a statement Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld made to author Bob Woodward suggesting that the administration gave Saudi Arabia a two-month heads-up that President Bush had decided to invade Iraq.

The transcript, which the Post has put online, is an interesting document. Although the Post is most interested by the Bandar connection, I found this exchange more interesting:

Rumsfeld: Have you met with the Vice President? You're not going to meet with the Vice President are you?

Q: Well I hope so.

Rumsfeld: I doubt it.

Q: You know better than I.

Why is Cheney concerned about Woodward meeting with Cheney? It almost makes it sound as if Rumsfeld's suggesting Cheney has critical data the President lacks. Was Bush out of the loop?
