Darth Cheney and the war on Terror

Whatever your opinion of Dick Cheney is, this is one thing I feel cant be disputed. He is one of the most serious and forthright politicians we have had in national politics.

The message he delivered on CNN yesterday was a harsh reminder of what we are up against in the war on terror and it's consequences if we fail.

In a wide-ranging interview with CNN's "State of the Union," Cheney said the harsh interrogations of suspects and the use of warrantless electronic surveillance were "absolutely essential" to get information to prevent more attacks like the 2001 suicide hijackings that targeted New York and Washington.

"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," he said.

I know it is in VOGUE right now not to water board and to close GITMO because the " HOPE" is the terrorists will treat us better. What was it that we did to these looney's before Sept 11, 2001? Ohhhhhhhh that's right we were nice to Israel.

Cheney delivers a sobering assessment on the Obama's administrations change of direction in handling these killers. Treating this as a law enforcement matter and not a military one will severely hamper us in continuing this battle going into the future. The Clinton administration did the same thing, but I believe had 9-11 happened under Bill Clinton he would have pursued the same course as Bush did and change the application of how to handle these scum as a military matter.

If God forbid another attack happens, I wonder what President Obama's excuse will be?
