Liz Cheney Fires Back at Pelosi: ‘Her Spine Doesn’t Reach Her Brain’

After House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) accused former Vice President Dick Cheney this weekend of creating “an attitude” at the CIA that encouraged torture, Liz Cheney fired back on Fox & Friends Tuesday morning.

“Frankly, Mrs. Pelosi is somebody who was briefed on the program,” Cheney said. “She forgot she was briefed on the program, later to admit it. And I have to say that when I heard those comments yesterday, I was reminded of something that Margaret Thatcher once said about one of her political opponents. Mrs. Pelosi’s problems is her spine doesn’t reach her brain.”

“We’ve got too many in Washington who were all in favor of doing everything necessary in protecting the nation after 9/11,” Cheney continued, “who now seem to be really not interested in looking at the facts, but really just looking for a way, frankly, to cast blame and say things that aren’t true about those brave men and women.”
