Cheney Criticizes Cooked ISIS Intel

Former Vice President Dick Cheney responded to The Daily Beast’s exclusive report about cooked ISIS intelligence in an upcoming interview with WABC host Rita Cosby. “All I know is I just heard the report,” Cheney said in the interview. “If it’s true, then there’s something seriously wrong in terms of the way they’re operating. My experience is in the intelligence community, you didn’t always get it right. But we worked hard to make certain that you had direct interaction between the analysts and the policymaker. We used to weekly, in our administration, every Friday morning, we’d have analysts who were actually doing the work, into the Oval Office. To talk to the president and me about their particular field of expertise.” These comments come from an interview taped Thursday, just as The Daily Beast reported that senators planned to investigate the allegations of skewed intelligence.
