Chris Wallace: “You and President Bush, the Bush-Cheney administration, dealt with Iran for eight years. Iran went from zero known [nuclear] centrifuges in operation to more than 5,000. So in fairness, didn’t you leave — the Bush-Cheney administration — leave President Obama with a mess?”
Dick Cheney: “Well, I don’t think of it that way ….
Chris Wallace: “But the centrifuges went from zero to 5,000.”
Dick Cheney: “Well, they may well have gone but that happened on Obama’s watch, not on our watch.”

Dick Cheney: “Right, But I think we did a lot to deal with the arms control problem in the Middle East.”
