Unheard: Cheney On the NSA and GWOT

The anti-defense, left-wing media will not report the following quotes from VP Cheney's speech at the Heritage Foundation lest you get the idea that defending your homeland is a good idea:
"The enemy that struck on 9/11 is weakened and fractured yet it is still lethal and planning to hit us again. Either we are serious about fighting this war or we are not . . ."
"There are no communications more important to the safety of the United States than those related to al Qaeda that have one end in the United States. If we'd been able to do this before 9/11, we might have been able to pick up on two of the hijackers who flew a jet into the Pentagon . . . They were in the United States, communicating with al Qaeda associates overseas, but we didn't know they were here plotting until it was too late . . ."
"America has been protected not by luck, but by sensible policy decisions, by decisive action at home and abroad, and by round-the-clock efforts on the part of people in law enforcement, intelligence, the military and homeland security."

National defense doesn't just happen. You have to make it happen. Get it? Got it? Good.
