Liz Cheney: 'Obama Going After American Patriots While Crises Erupts'
In a press conference Friday afternoon, President Obama spoke about enhanced interrogation techniques used by the Bush-Cheney administration after 9/11.
“Even before I came into office, I was very clear that in the immediate aftermath of 9/11, we did some things that were wrong. We did a whole lot of things that were right, but we tortured some folks. We did some things that were contrary to our values,” the president said.
Tonight on Hannity, Liz Cheney, daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney, responded to President Obama’s remarks.
“You’ve got crises erupting around the world and he’s expending [...] more aggressive activity in targeting and going after patriots, heroes, CIA officers and others who kept us safe after 9/11,” she said. “He’s lying about what they did, he’s slandering them. He went to Cairo and did it in 2009. Today, he did it from the podium of the Oval Office. It’s a disgrace. It’s despicable.”
Cheney went on to say that President Obama’s “we try” attitude isn’t good enough when the United States is facing threats of global terror.
