Dick CheneyFormer Vice President Dick Cheney, continuing his “heads exploding” book tour, pushed back against criticisms of his book by former Secretary of State Colin Powell that the book contained, “cheap shots that he’s taking at me and other members of the Administration who served to the best of our ability for President Bush.”

Powell’s former chief of staff retired Col. Lawrence Wilkerson offered even more pointed criticisms of Cheney, telling ABC News that, “[Cheney] was president for all practical purposes for the first term of the Bush administration,” and “fears being tried as a war criminal.”

But today, Cheney appeared in a Fox News interview with Chris Wallace and hit back at his critics from the George W. Bush administration. Read the transcript:

Chris Wallace: When [Colin Powell] says ‘these are cheap shots and you’re wrong’…

Dick Cheney: Obviously I disagree with him.

Wallace: Anything you’d want to take back?

Cheney: No.

Wallace: Powell’s former chief of staff Lawrence Wilkerson, I don’t know if you know this, has also weighed in. He says you’re worried about being tried as war criminal.
