Cheney Defends Awlaki Killing

At least they can agree on something. Former Vice President Dick Cheney and former Democratic Rep. Jane Harman both defended the U.S. decision to kill U.S.-born cleric and terror leader Anwar al-Awlaki in a drone strike. On CNN's State of the Union Sunday, Harman (who sits on the board of directors of The Newsweek Daily Beast Co.), said Awlaki posed an imminent threat, while Cheney said, "It was a very good strike." But Cheney also called on President Obama to apologize for criticizing former President George W. Bush's actions against suspected terrorists.
