    I’m certain of that. He was Bush’s VP. Cheney did what he was hold to do.

    To be honest he was in charge of Foreign Policy because Bush was a domestic policy guy when he ran in 2000. Cheney was not on the ticket for his charm.

    He was not in charge of foreign policy. He performed an advisory role.

    Bush was the chief executive. He was the boss. Cheney did what the boss directed him to do. I’m sure there were times Cheney did what he was told, but disagreed.
