Greenwald: Cheney setting up Obama in anticipation of another terrorist attack

In an interview with Politico published on Wednesday, former vice president Dick Cheney defended the Bush administration's use of torture and warrantless surveillance and suggested that unless the Obama administration maintains these policies, it risks a new "9/11-type event" that could "involve the deaths of perhaps hundreds of thousands of people."

"This argument is setting us up for the future," asserted MSNBC's Rachel Maddow on Wednesday evening. "If there is another attack, there's a reason to keep pushing this legacy ... so that there will be a political blowback against Barack Obama, so ... the country wouldn't rally around him they way they rallied around Bush and Cheney after 9/11."
