"Our people on the ground report that the Iraqui people are optimistic about the future..." "Do you think things are getting better?" "How could they possibly get any worse?" 22 December, 2005.

Reference Number: DCDL-0000531

There are two frames; in the top frame a sinister-looking Dick Cheney, Vice-President of the United States states that his people on the ground report that the Iraqui people are optimistic about the future; in the lower frame an Iraqui man tells a US soldier that things couldn't possibly get any worse. The irony is missing from Cheney's take on things.
