Appearing on Fox & Friends Tuesday, Liz Cheney appeared to take credit for keeping the country safe from terrorism. “Look, we have kept the nation safe since 9/11. There hasn’t been a single attack,” she said. But Cheney thinks that Eric Holder is putting the country at risk by considering a special prosecutor for torture. “We can’t [keep the country safe] without the right intelligence and the situation we’re in now has really hurt morale at the agency and harmed our ability to get that intelligence,” said Cheney.
