"It was the right thing to do then. I believed it then and I believe it now," Cheney said Tuesday in an interview on CNN's "Anderson Cooper 360."

"No apologies," he added.

The Iraq War became an issue in the presidential campaign earlier this year, when former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, brother of Cheney's former boss, George W. Bush, struggled to elucidate his position on the costly mission. After a week of bungled answers, Jeb Bush finally said that "knowing what we know now, ...I would not have engaged. I would not have gone into Iraq."

However, later in August, the former Florida governor appeared to backtrack on that statement somewhat when he said that taking out Hussein "turned out to be a pretty good deal.”
