“President Obama’s decision to allow the Justice Department to investigate and possibly prosecute CIA personnel, and his decision to remove authority for interrogation from the CIA to the White House, serves as a reminder, if any were needed, of why so many Americans have doubts about this Administration’s ability to be responsible for our nation’s security,” (Dick Cheney, via: ABC).

Dear Mr. Cheney: while I applaud your newfound dedication to the concept of separation of powers, you do remember that the CIA is in fact nominally under executive jurisdiction? You were sitting in the White House recently enough to remember that they were following your and/or Bush's instructions, ya know.
