Cheney’s command

Like father, like daughter in the Cheney clan. Dick Cheney’s non-lesbian daughter Liz is the neo-conservative torch-bearer in the family, but she now has critics on the right comparing her to Joseph McCarthy. In her leadership post at Keep America Safe, Cheney is defending her dad’s record as boss of the president during the Bush years and his record as adversary of the president during the first Obama years. As an anti-terrorism hawk, she also is attacking U.S. Justice Department officials who represented Guantanamo Bay detainees as the “Al Qaeda 7.” That attack proved too much for some on the right, who called the characterization viscious and unfounded.
