Former Vice President Dick Cheney tells Co-Host Charlie Rose that he thinks the use of drones is "a good program" though he believes the Obama Administration's national security policies are "terribly flawed," in an interview that was broadcast today, Feb. 13, on CBS THIS MORNING (7:00-9:00 AM) on the CBS Television Network. Check out the appearance in full below!
In a wide-ranging interview, Cheney discussed President Obama's foreign policy, the use of enhanced interrogation tactics and his relationship with former President George W. Bush.

[CHENEY DISCUSSES THE USE OF DRONES]

I think the President's performance, by my standards, in the international arena, the Middle East and so forth, is worse than many of my friends and colleagues deem his domestic policies.
