    Former CIA Agent Scolds CNN Anchor: 'You're Just Carrying Water For Obama' | NewsBusters.org

    First he clears up the lie that NATO being in charge means we will not be blamed.

    I like that, but wish more people would point out that NATO is essentially a sock puppet for the US. If we want something from them they always rubber stamp it.



    Then he goes on to talk about how this is actually something both parties do, and how we cannot afford it. Romans tries to argue they are separate issues, and he lets her have it in the face.



    My guess is that he will not be back anytime soon.

    Michael Scheuer - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


    Of the Bush administration, Scheuer warns against assigning it full responsibility for the nation's troubles since September 11, 2001. Although the "unprovoked attack of Iraq" will forever be remembered as "infamous", as will Dick Cheney's "reptilian contention that Americans who criticize U.S. foreign policy are 'validating the strategy of the terrorists'," according to Scheuer, a "bipartisan governing elite", both Democratic and Republican, is to blame for the nation's woes.[28] (Notwithstanding the bipartisan responsibility, Scheuer comments, "the thought of what history will say about Donald Rumsfeld's tenure at the Department of Defense ought to make his relatives shudder down to their latest generation.")

    Does this mean that you agree with Scheuer that Obama is lying about why we went to war in Libya?

    You're expecting TM to have an opinion that in any way criticizes the Messiah? Are you kidding me?

    The question should be: You're expecting TM to give an honest answer?

    Not really.

    But it is fun to pick at her. I guess she expects me to defend Bush as mindlessly as she defends Obama. Funny thing is, they were both wrong.

    Even Scheur didn't say he was "lying." You people throw that word around like six-year olds.

    Michael Scheur IS an expert on bin Laden, or rather was. I think he's been out of the loop too long, however. He also can be extremely rude, which apparently hasn't changed since he did interviews during the Bush Administration and bad-mouthed everybody then, too. The same type of information on bin Laden and his motives was provided by Richard Clarke, but in a much softer, saner tone which didn't piss people off.
