On offense, Cheney scores points

Quoting The Washington Times:
“Former Vice President Dick Cheney's sweeping indictment of administration policy changes on the handling of terrorism-suspect detainees has thrown President Obama on the defensive and scored points for the vice president and his party, according to pollsters and political analysts…

polls show a majority of Americans side with him on using aggressive interrogation methods on high value al Qaeda prisoners and are against moving them from the detention facility at U.S. Naval Base Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, to maximum-security facilities in the U.S…

Meanwhile, a key former adviser to Mr. Cheney, says he has no intention of folding his tent and going into retirement anytime soon, as long as he feels Mr. Obama's policies will endanger the country's security. A major objective for him will be to force the administration to release key intelligence memos he says will show that aggressive interrogation methods were effective in producing valuable information that kept Americans safe from terrorist plots…

‘Obama's clearly on the defensive here. He turned this into a values fight. This is not about moral relativism. Evil people want to kill innocents. Wanting to defend ourselves is not an abrogation of our values’ [said former Cheney adviser Mary Matalin]”
