Vice president Cheney Questions Where Guantanamo Prisoners Will Land
Due to the Obama administration's reversal of Bush administration policies on harsh interrogations and the military prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, Vice President Dick Cheney said on CBS' "Face the Nation" program, "in the future we're not going to have the same safeguards we've had for the last eight years."

Continuing the unusual broadside, he added, "They have moved to take down a lot of those policies we put in place that kept the nation safe for nearly eight years from a follow-on terrorist attack like 9/11."

The broadside by a politician well-known for his low profile forced the president's national security adviser to fire back.

"I don't believe that," James Jones told George Stephanopoulos on ABC's "This Week" program. "The Obama administration inherited a situation at Guantanamo that was intolerable."
