Cheney: Obama's Policies Make US Less Safe

Former Vice President Dick Cheney gave a long interview to CNNs John King this morning. Cheney repeated his previous assertions that President Obamas policies on terrorism have made the country less safe.

Cheney on closing Guantanamo Bay: "When you go back to the law enforcement mode, which I sense is what they’re doing – closing Guantanamo and so forth – that they are very much giving up that center of attention and focus that’s required, and that concept of a military threat that’s essential if you’re going to successfully defend the nation against further attacks."

Cheney on terrorism prevention under Bush: "I think that's a great success story. It was done legally. It was done in accordance with our constitutional practices and principles. President Obama campaigned against it all across the country. And now he is making some choices that, in my mind, will, in fact, raise the risk to the American people of another attack."
