Dick Cheney was Vice-President of the United States under President George W. Bush, Secretary of Defence under George H.W. Bush and White House Chief of Staff under Gerald Ford.

House Intelligence Committee

"Cheney had been a consumer of intelligence in the Ford White House, so he would bring a basic familiarity to his work on the Committee. But oversight required much greater knowledge. So Cheney began to study. He bought a series of books that had been recently published by the Consortium for the Study of Intelligence and edited by a Professor at Georgetown University, Roy Godson. Cheney scribbled his thoughts on the inside flap of one of those books, Intelligence Requirements for the 1980s, Elements of Intelligence. [1]
