Cheney: Obama has ‘surrendered’ America’s global power
Former Vice President Dick Cheney and his daughter, Liz Cheney, say President Obama has “dangerously surrendered” U.S. global leadership during his time in office.
In an adapted excerpt published by The Wall Street Journal from their upcoming book, “Exceptional: Why the World Needs a Powerful America,” the two write that until Obama became president, Republican and Democratic presidents understood the “indispensable nature of American power.”
“For the most part, until the administration of Barack Obama, we delivered,” they wrote, arguing that Obama has “departed from this 75-year, largely bipartisan tradition of ensuring America’s pre-eminence and strength.”
The Cheneys said Obama has “abandoned Iraq” and is “on course” to do the same in Afghanistan.

And for members of Congress, who face a vote on the agreement next month, the choice before them is whether to facilitate “Tehran’s deadly objectives with potentially catastrophic consequences for the United States and our allies.”
“The Obama agreement will lead to a nuclear-armed Iran, a nuclear-arms race in the Middle East and, more than likely, the first use of a nuclear weapon since Hiroshima and Nagasaki,” the two wrote in a Wall Street Journal op-ed published Friday night.
