The White House rejected Thursday former Vice President Dick Cheney's latest critique of President Barack Obama's foreign policy, suggesting that it was the former Bush administration which acted irresponsibly.

"What Vice President Cheney calls 'dithering,' President Obama calls his solemn responsibility to the men and women in uniform and to the American public," White House spokesman Robert Gibbs said at the daily press briefing.

"I think we've all seen what happens when someone doesn't take that responsibility seriously," he added.

The remarks come a day after Cheney made a wide-ranging critique of Obama's foreign policy, saying the president appears "afraid to make a decision" when it comes to troop levels in Afghanistan, and the president's indecision is "hurting our allies and emboldening our adversaries."

Gibbs also said the delay over a troop decision in Afghanistan is largely due to the fact the former Bush administration did not adequately assess the conditions in the country ahead of sending troops there.

Stanley McChrystal, the top U.S. commander in Afghanistan, has been calling for sending at least 40,000 more troops to that country but Obama is still weighing options amid waning domestic support for the conflict.

The White House said Wednesday that the president could make a decision on whether to send more troops before Afghanistan's runoff election on Nov. 7.
