It's always an undisclosed location with that family

Liz Cheney on Fox News Sunday --

But I just come back myself from the Middle East about ten days ago. And across the region you have got real unanimity, frankly, among the Israelis and the Arab governments in terms of saying where is America? Why aren't you helping us in the battle against the extremists? Against the al Qaeda? Why are you choosing now to push on this particular issue when in fact the Iranians are on the verge of obtaining a nuclear weapon? And when al Qaeda's resurging across the region?

Liz Cheney was just back on Fox News Sunday after an enforced sabbatical due to her failed campaign running for the US Senate from Wyoming, a state in which she hasn't lived for years. That's another Cheney thing. But anyway, the point here is there's no public account of any Liz Cheney trip to the Middle East recently. This is most definitely not a Tom Friedman trip to the Middle East where he finds taxi drivers and Kings that agree with him, and writes it all up. She was there and back again without a trace.

So why does she get to go on Sunday TV without naming countries, let alone sources, where she heard criticism of Barack Obama's foreign policy?
