OBAMA RESPONDS TO CHENEY.... Last Sunday, former Vice President Dick Cheney offered some odd and factually-challenged criticism of the White House. This Sunday, President Obama responds.
President Obama has hit back at former Vice President Dick Cheney, calling Bush administration policy on detainees at the military prison at GuantÃ¡namo Bay, Cuba, "unsustainable."
"How many terrorists have actually been brought to justice under the philosophy that is being promoted by Vice President Cheney?" Mr. Obama said Friday in an interview to be broadcast Sunday on "60 Minutes" on CBS.
The president was responding to recent charges by Mr. Cheney that the administration's decision to shut down the GuantÃ¡namo prison, along with other policies on the treatment of terrorism suspects, would make the United States more vulnerable to attacks.
Bush administration terrorism policy "hasn't made us safer," Mr. Obama said, according to excerpts of the interview released Saturday. "What it has been," he continued, "is a great advertisement for anti-American sentiment."
