That “gratitude…is matched only by our love for him” waxes Liz Cheney about her father, Dick.

“First of all, it wasn’t torture,” Dick Cheney said of waterboarding. “It was the most significant source of intelligence for us that we absolutely had to have, and that was on al Qaeda, how big they were, where they were, who their leaders were, what their plans were, and so forth…

“There was widespread support at the time, and it was justified,” he said. “I’m well known as somebody who has strongly defended that as the right thing to do. And I still believe that.”

Liz Cheney remarked that no one had been “more courageous and dedicated and honorable” that her father.

“I know, for all of us who love you, the gratitude as Americans that we feel, is matched only by our love for him,” she said turning to her dad.
