Cheney backs Obama on drones

In a broad interview with Charlie Rose on CBS, former Vice President Dick Cheney backed the President's program of targeting U.S. citizens abroad with drones. "I think it's a good program. And I don't disagree with the basic policy that the Obama Administration has pursued in that regard," Cheney said. 

Cheney joins a handful of other Republicans who have defended the program unconditionally, even as more lawmakers are calling for increased oversight of the Administration's targeting of U.S. citizens.
