White House: Cheney insufficiently critical of terrorists

Dan Pfeiffer at the White House responds to Vice President Cheney's national security criticisms:

I think we all agree that there should be honest debate about these issues, but it is telling that Vice President Cheney and others seem to be more focused on criticizing the Administration than condemning the attackers. Unfortunately too many are engaged in the typical Washington game of pointing fingers and making political hay, instead of working together to find solutions to make our country safer.

Wait a second. Don't we already agree that the attack was an act of evil? And does anyone think that Dick Cheney — of all people — has reservations about condemning terrorists?

And finally, can someone explain to me how it helps to have more statements of condemnation for the attackers? If we all stand in a circle and curse them unto the fourth generation, will it make America safer?
