Cheney Defends Spying on World Leaders

Former Vice President Dick Cheney told CNN that "there is an interest in conducting surveillance on a country or a leader, even a clear ally."

Said Cheney: "We do have a fantastic intelligence capability, worldwide against all kinds of potential issues and concerns. We are vulnerable, as was shown on 9/11, and you never know what you're going to need when you need it."

He added: "We do collect a lot of intelligence. Without speaking about any particular target or group of targets, that intelligence capability is enormously important to the United States, to our conduct in foreign policy, to defense matters, economic matters, and I'm a strong supporter of it."
