Cheney Criticizes Obama on Terror Tactics

Ad Feedback

Former Vice President Dick Cheney continues to criticize President Obama saying the new administration is making America less safe.

"They have moved to take down a lot of those policies we put in place that kept the nation safe for nearly eight years from a follow-on terrorist attack like 9/11," Cheney said during an appearance on CBS' Face The Nation.

Cheney claims the planned closing of the terrorist prison camp at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba and stopping controversial prisoner interrogation techniques have made the country more vulnerable to a potential terrorist attack.

The former vice president said waterboarding suspected terrorists like Khalid Shaikh Mohammed has produced valuable information about al Qaeda.

"No regrets," Cheney said. "I think it was absolutely the right thing to do. I'm convinced, absolutely convinced, that we saved thousands, perhaps hundreds of thousands of lives."

Cheney wants the Obama administration to release memos that show the effectiveness of those interrogation techniques.
