Richard Bruce "Dick" Cheney (born 30 January 1941) is an American politician and businessman, as well as the CEO of Halliburton from 1995 to 2000. He served as Vice President of the United states from 2001 to 2009, under President George W. Bush. His tenure was marked by the terrorist attacks of 11 September 2001, which prompted the launch of the War on Terror a month later.
Secretly, however, Cheney was being influenced by the Templar Order, paving the way for Cheney's military contractors to accept jobs from the government and escalate the Iraq War further. As a result, Templar influence spread, and Cheney was able to strengthen the American armed forces, ensuring the war would continue.
