Cheney also said what was done after 9/11 wasn't torture. A soon-to-be-released Senate document says otherwise. More on that in John's piece from this weekend.

Video footage shows students walking out on Dick Cheney while he was speaking at American University. The students were protesting his foreign policy, and calling him a “War criminal” as they left the arena.

As reported by American University’s The Eagle, the former vice-president denied allegations that he was a war criminal saying that “the accusation are not true.”
