Leon Panetta, the director of the Central Intelligence Agency has slammed former Vice President Dick Cheney, who has been in the media a lot lately, claiming Cheney's "wishing that this country would be attacked again, in order to make his point."
The former VP's point is that the Obama administration has allegedly made the United States less safe by beginning to close Guantanamo Bay and ceasing the practice of torture on terrorism suspects.
Panetta said Cheney's criticisms are "almost, a little bit, gallows politics. When you read behind it, it's almost as if he's wishing that this country would be attacked again, in order to make his point. I think that's dangerous politics."
