Cheney says Obama's policies are making the U.S. less safe
"I do," he said. (see video below).
Cheney appeared on CNN's State of the Union show this morning. Host John King asked for Cheney's reaction to President Obama's call to close Guantanamo Bay, close CIA "black sites," make CIA interrogators abide by the Army field manual, define waterboarding as torture, suspend trials for terrorists by military commission, and eliminate the label of enemy combatants.
"I think those programs are absolutely essential to the success we enjoyed, being able to collect the intelligence that led us to defeat all further attempts to launch attacks against the United States since 9/11.
"I think it is a great success story. It was done legally, it was done in accordance with the Constitution's practices and principles.
"President Obama campaigned against it all across the country. Now he's making some choices that in my mind will, in fact, raise the risk to the American people to another attack."
