Down memory lane with Dick Cheney

On “Fox News Sunday” former vice president Dick Cheney, speaking of Edward Snowden’s actions, said, “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” (“Cheney defends national surveillance policies,” Page A2, June 17).

Wow, that bad? Then it must rank right up there with Cheney’s and President George W. Bush’s invasion of Iraq based on the threat of weapons of mass destruction when their own classified information stated otherwise.
