Dick Cheney just can’t stop worrying about terrorists. In an interview with Politico, the former VP warned the U.S. is highly susceptible to a nuclear or biological attack in the coming years. And Obama’s election victory, according to Cheney, only serves to increase that risk. “Whether or not [the terrorists] can pull it off,” Cheney said, “depends whether or not we keep in place policies that have allowed us to defeat all further attempts, since 9/11, to launch mass-casualty attacks against the United States.” In defense of Guantanamo, Cheney called it as a “first-class program,” and claimed the Obama administration’s decision to shut down the controversial prison would put Americans in harm’s way. “If you release the hard-core Al Qaeda terrorists that are held at Guantanamo,” he said, “I think they go back into the business of trying to kill more Americans and mount further mass-casualty attacks.”
