Watch: Dick Cheney Heckled, Called ‘War Criminal’ During AEI Speech

Tuesday at the he American Enterprise Institute for Public Policy Research (AEI), former Vice President Dick Cheney was heckled during his speech criticizing President Barack Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran.

Cheney said, “Approval of this agreement will not prevent a nuclear Iran. Along with a pathway to a nuclear arsenal, President Obama’s agreement will provide Iran with funds and weapons the regime will use for the support of terror, the dominance in the Middle East, and the furtherance of Terran’s threat to Israel, Arab regimes and prevent the United States from defending our allies and our interests in the Persian Gulf and beyond.”

The former vice president was interrupted by a protester holding up a banner and screaming, “Dick Cheney is a war criminal. Why should we be listening to him? He was wrong in Iraq.”
