Vice President Dick Cheney made an appearance on Meet the Press on September 16, 2001. ” ‘If you provide sanctuary to terrorists, you face the full wrath of the United States of America,’ he told [host Tim] Russert… He warned this would be a war unlike any other, unlike the Gulf War he had led, one that would go beyond simply marshaling armies and air forces. ‘We also have to work sort of the dark side, if you will,’ he said. ‘We’re going to spend time in the shadows in the intelligence world. A lot of what needs to be done here will have to be done quietly, without any discussions, using sources and methods that are available to our intelligence agencies if we’re going to be successful. That’s the world these folks operate in.’ ”
