Stating that the US is more safe than ever under new Administration, Vice President Joe Biden on Wednesday said his predecessor Dick Cheney is "dead wrong" when he contends that President Barack Obama's security policies are making America unsafe. "I don't think he (Cheney) is out of line, but he is dead wrong," Mr. Biden told CNN in an interview when asked about Cheney's recent statement on Obama's policies. Mr. Biden claimed that the Bush Administration had left the US in a weaker posture than it has been any time since World War II. "Less regarded in the world, stretched more thinly than we ever have been in the past, two wars under way, virtually no respect in entire parts of the world," he said. "So, we've been about the business of repairing and strengthening those. I guarantee you we are safer today, our interests are more secure today than they were any time during the eight years... We are more safe. We are more secure. Our interests are more secure, not just at home, but around the world, he said. Mr. Biden said people are now beginning to follow the US again as a consequence of the steps taken by the Obama Administration. Mr. Biden said a powerful Cheney as the Vice President did more harm to the US as his power weakened the country. "What I mean by that was, there was a divided government. There was Cheney and his own sort of separate national security agency, and then there was the National Security Agency. There was Powell, who didn't agree with Cheney, and Cheney off with Rumsfeld," he said. "I mean, there was a divided government, a divided administration. The strength of this Administration is that the President and I work in concert. I am very straightforward in my views. I am as strong - I hold them as strongly as I ever have. But they're doing in the context of one National Security Agency, a united national security team," he added.
