In a speech following President Obama's, former Vice President Dick Cheney defended the Bush administration's national security policies. Cheney said the policies were rooted in a determination not to forget the terrible harm of Spetember 11th.

The former vice president also said that though the administrations and policies have changed, the stakes for the country have not. He said the Bush administration was driven by a desire to make sure September 11th did not become a prelude to something worse.

Mr. Cheney said that when President Obama takes steps he supports, such as increasing forces in Afghanistan or reversing his plan to release incendiary photos of abused detainees, he will support him.
