Following remarks on the Gerald Ford Journalism Awards, Vice President Cheney answered questions from reporters about terrorist threats to national security, military and security operations in Iraq, and the future of the U.S. military commitment in Iraq. He defended a statement he had made the previous year that the Iraqi insurgency was “in its last throes,” and spoke about Democratic proposals to define a withdrawal strategy.

Vice President Cheney’s remarks were a portion of a luncheon on the Gerald R. Ford Foundation Journalism Awards held at the National Press Club. Award winners were Tom DeFrank, Washington Bureau Chief for the New York Daily News, for Distinguished Reporting on the Presidency; and Mark Mazzetti, the New York Times, for Distinguished Reporting on National Defense, for work written while at the Los Angeles Times Washington Bureau. close
