The Lead with Jake Tapper launches Monday, March 18th.
Defending his administration's lack of transparency over its drone policy, President Obama reportedly told Democratic Senators, “This is not Dick Cheney we’re talking about here,” according to Politico.
"I have to agree – he certainly is no Dick Cheney," Liz Cheney told CNN. Liz is the former vice president's eldest daughter.
Sen. Jay Rockefeller, D-W.Va., confronted the president Tuesday over the administration's opacity, and its refusal to show congressional intelligence committees memos justifying the use of drones against American terror suspects abroad, according to Politico. In his defense, the president told his former colleagues that his administration is better than the last one.
“It’s a low bar to say that their secrecy is no worse than Cheney’s,” said Chris Anders, of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU).
