Cheney backs Obama policy on drone strikes

“I think it’s a good program and I don’t disagree with the basic policy that the Obama administration is pursuing now in those regards,” said Cheney in an interview with CBS News’s Charlie Rose aired on Tuesday.

Cheney offered support for the administration’s killing of Anwar al-Awlaki, an American citizen living in Yemen, in a drone attack.

“He was clearly part of al Qaeda,” said Cheney.
