The World According To Dick Cheney will be on Showtime next month.
In the just-released trailer from Showtime, Cheney says that his favorite virtue is “integrity,” his most valued attribute in his friends is “honesty.” And his main fault? “Well, I don’t spend a lot of time thinking about my faults.”
The documentary will review Cheney’s entire life, from his upbringing in Wyoming to his first big Washington role as President Ford’s chief of staff to his eventual ascension through Congress, the Pentagon and finally the Vice Presidency.
Cheney discusses the questions he asks himself about the biggest moments of his career including 9/11 (“If we had been able to take out one of those planes headed for the World Trade Center, would we have done it? The answer is absolutely yes”) and the resulting War on Terror (“Are you going to trade the lives of a number of people because you want to preserve your honor? This was a war time situation and it was more important to be successful than it was to be loved.”)
