Former Vice President Dick Cheney warned that there is a “high probability” that terrorists will attempt a catastrophic nuclear or biological attack in coming years, and said he fears the Obama administration’s policies will make it more likely the attempt will succeed.
"Flatly, it may be time for Mr. Cheney to leave this country," he said. "The partisanship and divisiveness he ascribed his and President Bush's delusional policies of the last eight years that have roared forth from Mr. Cheney can only serve to undermine the nation's new president."
The anchor's sentiment was echoed at the confirmation hearing of Leon Panetta, former White House Chief of Staff and President Obama's nominee to lead the CIA.
"I was disappointed by those comments, because the implication is that somehow this country is more vulnerable to attack because the president of the United States wants to abide by the law and the Constitution," said Panetta. "I think we’re a stronger nation when we abide by the law and the Constitution."
"It is time for you to desist or to be made to desist," said Olbermann. "With damnable words you protect no American, you serve no American and you aid and abet those who would destroy this nation from within or without.
"... Depart, I say, and let us have done with you. In the name of God, go!"

Notto sound like a Cheney fan here (causeIm not) but, What is so different about him saying it opposed to someone else? I mean I come onto ATS all the time and all I see/hear is "we arein trouble, we are going to get attacked, they are comming after us, something major is going to happen, I hope you have ammo and guns"... But when he says it, oh no, the world is going to catch fire. Is it because what he says mightback up some of the claims that some of you have also stated? Is it really scary for you to actually hear it from someone who has/had power? Come on.
Would you have rather he lied to you and said "oh no, dont worry about anything, we will all be ok". Me personally, I like to hear it from the horses mouth.
