9. Cheney said that the Iraqis would hang flowers around the necks of our troops.
It was the first and only time I had heard of Iraqis greeting anyone (let alone an invading army) with flower leis.

I wondered for a second if he had Baghdad confused with Honolulu, or if he just wanted us to confuse Baghdad with Honolulu.

However, since I, like many Americans and all Arabs, knew he was lying about Saddam and Osama being in cahoots, a geography or local culture lesson did not seem to be a priority.
