Secretary of State John Kerry said on "Today" Thursday that the Obama administration hopes high-level talks put an end to turmoil in Iraq but that working directly with Iran over its neighbor is "not on the table." Kerry also dismissed scathing criticism by former Vice President Dick Cheney who blamed the current White House for the turmoil in Iraq. “Rarely has a U.S. President been so wrong about so much at the expense of so many,” Cheney wrote in a "Wall Street Journal" op-ed. Kerry pointed out that Cheney was the one who oversaw plans to invade Iraq in 2003. “This is the man who took us into Iraq saying this? Please,” he said.
