Former VP Dick Cheney thinks he knows the reason for President Obama's low key response to the attempted terrorist attack by the underpants bomber. Obama is 'trying to pretend we are not at war.'
Politico has a transcript of Cheney’s full statement
As I've watched the events of the last few days it is clear once again that President Obama is trying to pretend we are not at war. He seems to think if he has a low key response to an attempt to blow up an airliner and kill hundreds of people, we won't be at war. He seems to think if he gives terrorists the rights of Americans, lets them lawyer up and reads them their Miranda rights, we won't be at war. He seems to think if we bring the mastermind of 9/11 to New York, give him a lawyer and trial in civilian court, we won't be at war.
