Former Vice President Dick Cheney addressed attendees at the 17th annual Wyoming Oil and Gas Fair Thursday.

During his speech he praised the industry for helping reduce U.S. reliance on foreign energy, while condemning the Obama administration’s withdrawal from the Middle East.

Discussing hydraulic fracturing and other advances in oil and gas extraction, Cheney said he was impressed by how far the industry has come since he was at Halliburton, but warned it will continue to contend with a “war on fossil fuels.”
