Authorities questioned the failed Times Square bomber for three to four hours before notifying him of his rights but Liz Cheney seems to be ignoring that fact. The daughter of the former vice president told Fox News' Chris Wallace that the Obama's administration's "first instinct" was to read Faisal Shahzad his Miranda rights.

"When the administration captures a terrorist and their first instinct is to inform him that he’s got the right to remain silent, that is exactly the wrong way to win this war," Cheney said Sunday.

"If you aren't willing to acknowledge that you're facing a committed network of terrorists as your enemies, and that it's radical jihadist Islam, then your response to that is gonna be, by definition, insufficient time and time again," said Cheney.
