It can be difficult to let things go. Appearing on CNN’s “State of the Union,” former Vice President Dick Cheney both praised and demanded an apology from President Obama.
Speaking of the recent strike against Anwar Al-Awlaki, Cheney said he thought it was justified and a “very effective use of our drone technology.”
Yet the VP is apparently still smarting over comments the president made two years ago. Referring to a speech in which Obama accused the Bush administration of “overreacting to the events of 9/11” and engaging in torture, Cheney made his displeasure clear.
“We were never torturing anyone in the first place,” Cheney said. “He said that we walked away from our basic fundamental ideals. That simply wasn’t the case.”
