The Obama Response to Cheney: 'We Don't Need to Beat Our Chests'

Dan Pfeiffer, White House Communications Director, at The White House Blog:
To put it simply: this President is not interested in bellicose rhetoric, he is focused on action. Seven years of bellicose rhetoric failed to reduce the threat from al Qaeda and succeeded in dividing this country. And it seems strangely off-key now, at a time when our country is under attack, for the architect of those policies to be attacking the President....
President Obama doesn’t need to beat his chest to prove it, and – unlike the last Administration – we are not at war with a tactic (“terrorism”), we at war with something that is tangible: al Qaeda and its violent extremist allies.

Politico has Mr. Cheney's words of wisdom here.

And meanwhile, William and the Neocons clamour for a good, old-fashioned waterboarding:

This last question is key. In light of the reporting that Abdulmutallab has clammed up on the advice of his lawyers, will Obama now at least consider designating him an enemy combatant?
