Cheney blasts September 11 critics

President Dick Cheney lashed out Wednesday at lawmakers who have questioned whether the government missed clues prior to the September 11 terrorist attacks, calling their comments "despicable" and "outrageous."
"When members of Congress suggest that the president of the United States had foreknowledge of the attack on September 11th, I think that's outrageous, that is beyond pale." -- Vice President Dick Cheney in an interview with CNN's Larry King to be broadcast Wednesday at 9 p.m. ET.
