How many times has Dick Cheney cheated death?

(CNN) - By his count, former Vice President Dick Cheney has cheated death at least three times – if you start after the fifth heart attack.

In December of 2009, the year after he left the White House, Cheney went into sudden cardiac arrest – which is normally fatal – while backing his car out of a garage. Cheney had an implanted defibrillator at the time, which kicked him back to life in 16 seconds.

Dick Cheney on latest NSA disclosure, spying on allies

(CNN) - The Obama administration is under fire anew about alleged National Security Agency snooping – this time of global leaders, including staunch European allies.

Documents reportedly leaked by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden have exposed this reach beyond U.S. call and e-mail traffic, and some of it has been going on for more than a decade.

Former Vice President Dick Cheney gives his take on it all – suggesting there is an interest in conducting surveillance on a country or a leader, even a clear ally.

Dick Cheney opens up about his heart

(CNN) – Sometimes, there's just too much to worry about.

Around 9/11, for example, then-Vice President Dick Cheney said he didn't have the luxury of worrying about his health. He'd already had several heart attacks by that point.

"I didn't think about my health. I was thinking about the problem we were dealing with," he told CNN's Sanjay Gupta in an interview that aired Sunday night on CBS' "60 Minutes." It will air Tuesday on CNN's "Anderson Cooper 360."

Cheney defends NSA, calls Obama's credibility 'nonexistent'

(CNN) – Former Vice President Dick Cheney vehemently defended the National Security Agency surveillance programs that started under President George W. Bush but argued the current administration has lost credibility.

"Part of the problem is the administration's credibility - because of Benghazi and the IRS scandal - is less effective. Nonexistent, if you will, when you get over to the NSA program, which ought to be defended," he told CNN.

Cheney to address RNC as GOP maps a political path forward

Los Angeles (CNN) - Former Vice President Dick Cheney will address members of the Republican National Committee gathering here in California this week for strategy sessions on how to broaden the GOP’s appeal with voters.

It is unclear what topic Cheney will speak on, but this is the first formal gathering of national party members since RNC Chairman Reince Priebus issued a report last month examining all aspects of the national party, including what steps the GOP should take to reach out to new voters, specifically Asian Americans, blacks, Hispanics and young people.
