In what has become a routine turn of events, former Vice President Dick Cheney laid into the president on the eve of Obama's speech unveiling his new Afghanistan policy. Cheney says Obama projects "weakness," and that his "agonizing" could hurt the troops. The former VP extended his condemnation of Obama's foreign policy beyond Afghanistan: "Here's a guy without much experience, who campaigned against much of what we put in place... and who now travels around the world apologizing. I think our adversaries… especially when that's preceded by a deep bow... see that as a sign of weakness." Cheney, who is currently writing his memoirs, said he finds Obama to be more "radical" than expected, claiming that he increasingly thinks that Obama "doesn't believe in American exceptionalism," and isn't in line with most American presidents.
