In an uncharacteristically confrontational manner President Barack Obama stated that he fundamentally disagrees with Dick Cheney’s notion that we can’t reconcile our core values with our national security interests. The President went on to say that he was surprised at Cheney’s defense of torture policies.

Turley believes the Obama administration is preventing the investigation of war crimes that occured when Bush and Cheney were at the helm. You be the judge. Watch the video.
