A crowd of more than three-thousand jams into a hangar at Whiteman Air Force Base in west-central Missouri to hear Vice President Dick Cheney praise the personnel who fly and service the B-2 Bomber – the world’s most technologically advanced bomber. Cheney spoke a great deal of the war on terror, saying this country is faced by an enemy driven by an ideology of violence determined to cause great harm to the United States. He says there can be no negotiations with these terrorists, adding the U.S. has only one option: to take the fight to the enemy. Following his speech, Cheney presented a Bronze Star to Air Force Master Sergeant Mike Morin of Brookfield for Morin’s service in Iraq.
