Dick Cheney was unfazed by revelations about the NSA’s broad phone surveillance program, saying in an interview on Fox News Sunday that if the technology was available at the time, “we might well have been able to prevent 9/11.”
“As everybody who’s been associated with the program’s said, if we had had this before 9/11, when there were two terrorists in San Diego, two hijackers, had been able to use that program, that capability, against that target, we might well have been able to prevent 9/11,” Cheney said. He continued with a pointed criticism of President Obama. ”I find a lot of it is, in other areas — the IRS, Benghazi — not credible. I’m obviously not a fan of the incumbent president.”
Asked about Edward Snowden, who leaked information about the NSA program to the press, Cheney called him a “traitor.”
“I think it’s one of the worst occasions, in my memory, of somebody with access to classified information doing enormous damage to the national security interests of the United States,” he said.

Like little stars.
World's best pie apple. Essential for Tarte Tatin. Has five prominent ribs.
So pretty. So early. So ephemeral. Tastes like strawberry candy (slightly).
My personal fave. Ultra-crisp. Graham cracker flavor. Should be famous. Isn't.
High flavored with notes of blood orange and allspice. Very rare.
Jefferson's favorite. The best all-purpose American apple.
New Hampshire's native son has a grizzled appearance and a strangely addictive curry flavor. Very, very rare.
Makes the best hard cider in America. Soon to be famous.
Freak seedling found in an Oregon field in the '60s has pink flesh and a fragrant strawberry snap. Makes a killer rose cider.
Ben Franklin's favorite. Queen Victoria's favorite. Only apple native to NYC.
Really does taste like pineapple.
