In what must have been a surprise for conservative viewers, Fox News’ Megyn Kelly told former vice president Dick Cheney that “time and time again, history has proven that you got it wrong” in Iraq, during a Wednesday night interview on The Kelly File.

Kelly was responding to an op-ed about President Barack Obama by Cheney and his daughter, Liz, which claimed that “rarely has a U.S. president been so wrong about so much at the expense of so many.”

“You said there was no doubt Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction,” Kelly told the Cheneys on Wednesday. “You said we would be greeted as liberators. You said the Iraq insurgency was in its last throes back in 2005. And you said that after our intervention extremists would have to rethink their strategy of jihad.”

Cheney, unsurprisingly, responded, “I just fundamentally disagree… We inherited a situation where there was no doubt in anybody’s mind about the extent of Saddam’s involvement in weapons of mass destruction.”

“It would have been irresponsible for us not to act,” he added.
