Former Vice President Dick Cheney responded to an op-ed by former National Coordinator for Security and Counterterrorism Richard Clarke during questions at the National Press Club Monday. Cheney suggested Clarke didn't warn the Bush administration that terrorists wanted to attack the U.S. Clarke "obviously missed it," said Cheney.

Cheney is, of course, lying. Clarke's January 2001 warning to the incoming administration is fully documented in the 9/11 Commission Report.
