Cheney backs Obama on drones [View all]

Source: USA Today

Dick Cheney isn't critical of all of President Obama's national security policies -- he backs drone strikes.

"I think it's a good program and I don't disagree with the basic policy that the Obama administration is pursuing," Cheney said in an interview that aired Tuesday on CBS This Morning.

Cheney also endorsed the drone strike against Anwar al-Awlaki, an American citizen living in Yemen, saying "he was clearly part of al-Qaeda."
