Cheney: Obama's Damaged US Credibility in Mideast

Ad Feedback

Former Vice President Dick Cheney said America's allies in the Middle East don't feel they can still rely on the United States because the U.S. isn't as involved in the area under President Barack Obama.

"I think our friends no longer count on us, no longer trust us, and our adversaries don't fear us. That was sort of the cornerstone and the basis of the U.S. ability and influence," he said.

"If we're not heavily involved there, if we've turned our back on the region, if we've had a president who believes we overreacted to the terrorism attacks on 9/11, I think the Saudis, the emirates, the Egyptians, many in that part of the world no longer have confidence in the United States," he continued.

Cheney also said he has trouble seeing how the United States can prevent Iran from building a nuclear weapon without military action.
