Former Vice President Dick Cheney doesn't want any investigation into the actions of the CIA during his administration.
Dick Cheney isn't happy with President Barack Obama.  Obama had pledged not to persecute CIA agents for actions taken under the Bush and Cheney administration, but now an investigation is under way.  Cheney made himself clear when he told Chris Wallace about his disappointment on 'FOX News Sunday' last night.

"We had the president of the United States, President Obama, tell us a few months ago there wouldn't be any investigation like this, that there would not be any look back at CIA personnel who were carrying out the policies of the prior administration," former Vice President Cheney explained. "Now they get a little heat from the left wing of the Democratic Party, and they're reversing course on that."  Should the Obama Administration investigate potentially illegal actions of the previous administration?
