Former VP Dick Cheney criticized Obama for going golfing immediately after delivering a statement on the beheading of American journalist James Foley.
"Every day we find new evidence that he’d rather be on the golf course than he would be dealing with a crisis that’s developing rapidly in the Middle East," Cheney said during an interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity.
Cheney, one of Obama's fiercest critics, said Obama should have instead decided to end his vacation and engage the situation.
"I noticed the reaction of David Cameron, the British prime minister, when he found out that the individual who apparently did the beheading was speaking with a British accent. He wanted to immediately leave his vacation," Cheney said. "Of course, our president headed to the golf course as soon as he made his relatively, I thought, ineffective statement"
Will there be another attack on the U.S.? Cheney says yes and it will be far deadlier
Now, is there a great threat coming? Absolutely. Remember what happened on 9/11, when 19 guys armed with airline tickets and box cutters came here and killed 3,000 of us, took down the World Trade Center, blew a big hole in the Pentagon. I'm absolutely certain that some day, there will be another mass casualty attack against the United States. Only next time, they'll have far deadlier weapons.
