In his first news conference since his heart was replaced one week ago,
former Vice President Dick Cheney announced Saturday that he regretted
his “extensive” role in the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001 — and the

“It was a terrible, terrible thing to do,” said Cheney, speaking in the
lobby of Bethesda Cardiac Unit in Maryland, the nation’s most
prestigious heart center. Reporters, his transplant team and members of

into the towers merely served as a distraction. “They were drone
