''We are absolutely confident that we have the tools necessary to get the information we need to keep this country safe,'' senior presidential adviser David Axelrod said Sunday. ''And we don't believe and the president of the United States does not believe that this is a contest between our values and our security. He thinks we can honor both and execute both. And that's what he's going to do.''As the Obama Administration dismantles our defense here and abroad, I would suggest that we all remember this quote delivered on April 20th, 2009. Since 9/11/01 there have been no significant terrorist attacks on US soil. If that continues...I will be elated.

"One of the things that I find a little bit disturbing about this recent disclosure is they put out the legal memos, the memos that the CIA got from the Office of Legal Counsel, but they didn't put out the memos that showed the success of the effort," Cheney said.I am afraid that this dangerous path taken by President Obama will have repercussions. While I would like to see him fail in his Socialistic tendencies, and other far Left applications to our country, I would never wish a failure here. However, were I to classify the various errors he has made since in office, this one far out-weighs all the others put together.
Cheney said he's asked that the documents be declassified because he has remained silent on the confidential information, but he knows how successful the interrogation process was and wants the rest of the country to understand.
"I haven't talked about it, but I know specifically of reports that I read, that I saw, that lay out what we learned through the interrogation process and what the consequences were for the country," Cheney said. "I've now formally asked the CIA to take steps to declassify those memos so we can lay them out there and the American people have a chance to see what we obtained and what we learned and how good the intelligence was."
