(NECN/ABC) - Two administrations, two divergent strategies -- made even more evident as former Vice President Dick Cheney and President Obama's national security advisor, General James Jones, took to the airwaves on Sunday to defend their respective administrations' positions. For weeks, Cheney has blasted Mr. Obama, claiming that Americans are no longer as safe as they were under his watch. "With respect to the Obama administration, as they came to power, is they have moved to take down a lot of those policies we put in place that kept the nation safe for nearly eight years from a follow-on terrorist attack like 9/11," Cheney told CBS' <i>Face The Nation</i>. High on Cheney's agenda: justifying the use of enhanced interrogation techniques and criticizing the closing of Guantanamo Bay. "The truth of the matter is that the Obama administration inherited a situation at Guantanamo that was intolerable," Jones told ABC's <i>This Week with George Stephanapoulos</i>. Jones backed the current administration's actions, saying that he did not believe its actions are costing the nation in terms of security. Cheney, though, did not back down. "They have tried, very hard, to undertake actions that I just fundamentally disagree with," Cheney said. The terse relationship between the two administrations will not likely abate in the near future, perhaps even exacerbated by President Obama's jab at the former vice president during <A HREF="http://www.necn.com/Boston/NECN-Extra/2009/05/09/Obama-lands-laughs-at/1241924157.html" target="_blank">the White House Correspondents' Dinner</A>.
