Should we listen to Dick Cheney?

Military analyst Rick Francona and counterterrorism analyst Phillip Mudd discuss former Vice President Dick Cheney's recent criticism of the Obama administration over Iraq; does he still deserve the media's attention?

    Cheney is by definition a statesman. We should listen to what he has to say. He is, however,, historically, one of the worst statesman the Good Old U.S. of A. has ever had. Why CNN gives him so much time the last few days and why he actually made the headline for the online edition completely boggles me.
    He says nothing new, or at least newsworthy–that is, nothing we would not expect him to say. He he is politically dead and not worthy of any interview. If he volunteers a news conference–that's one thing. But to seek out to interview him, or allow him an interview if he asks, well we have a new kind of journalism–Absurdist Journalism.

    It is fascinating how the Cheney family runs the gamut from complete Dick to zero dick.
