Here is a link to an interview with Dick Cheney who now feels free to talk about his decisions and the threat of terror, the new Obama administration who he believes does not understand the threat yet and and article about Mr. Cheney as well. This is well worth the time to read and to listen to the short interview with him. Below is an excerpt….
Cheney said “the ultimate threat to the country” is “a 9/11-type event where the terrorists are armed with something much more dangerous than an airline ticket and a box cutter – a nuclear weapon or a biological agent of some kind” that is deployed in the middle of an American city.
“That’s the one that would involve the deaths of perhaps hundreds of thousands of people, and the one you have to spend a hell of a lot of time guarding against,” he said.
“I think there’s a high probability of such an attempt. Whether or not they can pull it off depends whether or not we keep in place policies that have allowed us to defeat all further attempts, since 9/11, to launch mass-casualty attacks against the United States.”
Mr. Cheney also speaks about how waterboarding the three terrorists actually saved large numbers of civilian casualties. Something we know now from a number of sources. Take a few minutes and click here.
