Liz Cheney, former Vice-President Dick Cheney’s eldest daughter, has launched the Keep America Safe campaign. A first video has been broadcast articulating a scathing critique of the gap between Barack Obama’s declarations on security issues and his acts, lambasting him for spending more time on television shows and on the golf course than on his job.

In addition to Liz Cheney, also heading Keep America Safe are neo-conservative journalist William Kristol (editor-in-chief of the Weekly Standard) and Debra Burlingame (the hawkish sister of Captain Charles (Chic) Burlingame who had organised the aerial defense of the Pentagon before becoming a commercial pilot ... the same one who happened to be in command of flight AA77 which allegedly crashed into the Pentagon on September 11, 2001.

The campaign initiators have enlisted several of John McCain’s campaign aids. Keep America Safe executive director Aaron Harison was McCain war room chief adviser; Michael Goldfarb, now a Weekly Standard blogger, is an adviser to the group; Justin Germany is the video producer (especially well known for his video titled "The One", produced during McCain’s campaign to mock Obama as a messianic figure).
