Former Vice President Dick Cheney congratulated President Obama for his track record of killing terrorists today — but added that Obama should withdraw his past criticisms of the George W. Bush administration counter-terrorism policies.
“The thing I’m waiting for is for the administration to go back and correct something they said two years ago, when they criticized us for, quote, overreacting to the events of 9/11,” Cheney said on CNN’s State of the Union.
“They in effect said that we had walked away from our ideals, or taken policy contrary to our ideals when we had enhanced interrogation techniques,” Cheney added.
“Now they have clearly moved in the direction of taking robust action when they feel it is justified.”
