Cheney said the Obama administration's policies are making the country less safe.
Anything to try and justify his own past actions to the bitter end.
(CNN) – The Obama administration's new policies on Guantanamo Bay prison and the treatment of detainees makes it more likely a terrorist attack against the United States will succeed, former Vice President Dick Cheney said Tuesday.
What? Treating them like human beings, abiding to the rule of international and humanitarian law and doing the right thing will make them want to destroy the US even more?
I figured through common sense that it'd be the other way around, since you know.... that's how this whole thing kinda started in the first place.
In an interview with Politico, the former vice president issued a stringent defense of the Bush administration's record on the war on terror, and said he worries the President Obama has already made the country more vulnerable.
Well during the whole 8 years there hasn't been a real "Mission Acomplished" in either Afghanistan or Iraq.... so I'd have to say he doens't know wtf he's talking about, since his mentality and tactics acomplished nothing.

“When we get people who are more concerned about reading the rights to an Al Qaeda terrorist than they are with protecting the United States against people who are absolutely committed to do anything they can to kill Americans, then I worry,” Cheney said in the interview published Wednesday.
This guys a fool..... you can't protect your nation and your nation's ideals if you toss them away whenever you feel you want to..... you either hold true to your ideals all the way and hold faith in your ideal's ability to lead you through all the tought times to show you're the stronger nation, or you piddle away and stoop to the same level as those you claim are then enemies and become a hypocrite.
Cheney also predicted the Obama administration is likely to backtrack on its pledge to end coercive interrogation techniques, since the protection of the United States from terrorists is a "tough, mean, dirty, nasty business.”
Yeah, why don't you go hunting and shoot some more people? Seems to be the only thing you're good at.
"These are evil people. And we’re not going to win this fight by turning the other cheek," he said.
I thought that was the "Christian" thing to do.... what a hypocrite...... geez.
This is the last guy anybody should be taking advice from.... which also explains the last 8 years.
