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.

Below are excerpts from the interview.

[CHENEY DISCUSSES THE USE OF DRONES]
CHENEY: I think it's a good program. And I don't disagree with the basic policy that the Obama administration has pursued in that regard.

ROSE: So therefore the idea of taking out- in Yemen, an American citizen who had threatened America-was just fine with Dick Cheney-

CHENEY: Yes.

ROSE: By a drone attack, without any kind of-

CHENEY: He was, he was clearly part of, about, you know-

ROSE: What should there be, checks and balances, in terms of that?

CHENEY: No, I think when we hire the President of the United States-he gets to live in the big house, makes all that money. He is getting paid to make difficult, difficult decisions.

ROSE: You talked about the Obama's team was second-rate. What did you mean?

CHENEY: Well, I think I'm very, very concerned about what I see happening, Charlie, in the national security arena. I think the administration's policies are terribly flawed. 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.
