Former Vice President Dick Cheney accused President Obama’s administration of a “failure of leadership” over the attack in Benghazi, Libya on 9/11/12.

Cheney claimed that the Bush administration was “always ready on 9/11″ anniversaries.

Cheney told the Daily Mail that the Obama administration “should have been ready before anything ever happened.”

“I mean, it’s North Africa, Libya, where they’ve already had major problems,” said Cheney “You know that Al-Qaeda is operating there, and you have some of the other Al-Qaeda-affiliated groups there like Ansar al-Sharia and others.”

“When we were there, on our watch, we were always ready on 9/11, on the anniversary,” Cheney claimed. “We always anticipated they were coming for us, especially in that part of the world.”

However, Cheney failed to mention that the Bush administration ignored security advisor Richard Clarke, who warned Bush and Cheney for months about Bin Laden preparing to strike the U.S.

Cheney also did not mention that there were 13 attacks on State Department buildings, which resulted in dozens of deaths during the Bush-Cheney administration, reports the Daily Banter.
