Dick Cheney Virginia (US), May 14 (ANI): Former US President Bill Clinton believes American foreign policy is being managed well by the Obama administration, and does not give much value to criticisms of it by former Vice -President Dick Cheney.

At a campaign event for Virginia gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe, Clinton said he disagreed with Cheney’s assertion that Obama’s foreign policies have made the nation less safe.

“I like this new approach. I think it will serve us well,” he said, referring to the administration’s diplomatic outreach to countries that were isolated by Bush officials.

In a round of media appearances, Cheney has criticized the Obama administration on a number of issues, including releasing memos detailing Bush-era enhanced interrogation techniques.

Asked whether he was surprised by Cheney’s criticisms, Clinton said: “He feels very strongly about it. I think that the president and secretary of state will prove to have better aim in foreign policy.” (ANI)
