President Barack Obama has returned from his Martha's Vineyard vacation and is receiving serious criticism from former Vice President Dick Cheney.
Cheney is blasting the Justice Department's decision to re-open an investigation of how the Central Intelligence Agency interrogated terrorism suspects under the Bush Administration, following the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder made that decision following an internal report that some interrogators tactics went beyond Bush Administration rules.
Cheney reacted to Holder's decision in an interview on Fox News on Sunday.
"I think it's an outrageous political act that will do great damage long term to our capacity to be able to have people take on difficult jobs, make difficult decisions without having to worry about what the next administration's going to say," Cheney said.
"I think they were directly responsible for the fact that for eight years, we had no further mass casualty attacks against the United States," he continued.
