In April 2001, Nick Lemann of The New Yorker interviewed Vice President Dick Cheney. Cheney wrote: “…Lemann asked me what we could do to reduce those [terrorist] threats [to the country]. I answered, ‘You need to have very robust intelligence capability if you’re going to uncover threats to the U.S., and hopefully thwart them before they can be launched.’ Intelligence, I said, is our ‘first line of defense.’ “ [The 15th of the month used for date sorting purposes only.]
