Dems Take Aim at Cheney

Dick Cheney’s back, and he’s got his political foes’ attention. Following a series of high-profile media appearances from the former veep, the Democratic National Committee has launched a series of televised attack adds blasting Cheney as “wrong then, wrong again.” The ad juxtaposes Cheney’s statements about Iraq’s purported weapons of mass destruction and being “greeted as liberators” with recent ones, and says Cheney’s recent statements claiming that enhanced interrogations resulted in valuable intelligence are also false. On Fox News Sunday, Cheney said techniques like waterboarding were “absolutely essential in saving thousands of American lives,” a claim that critics say CIA documents do not support.
