Via the ABC News blog “Political Punch” comes this message from Michael Scheuer on The Path to 9/11 controversy.
“This morning we received an email from Michael Scheuer, former chief of the Osama bin Laden Unit at the CIA’s Counterterrorist Center (and the previously “Anonymous” author of “Imperial Hubris”) who is clearly no fan of either the Bush nor the Clinton Administrations — nor the 9/11 Commission. He writes the following:
“This whole business over ABC’s movie is amazing. Now Arthur Schlesinger, Jr. and a pack of political whores who pass themselves off as ‘historians’ have come out four-square for pre-publication censorship.
“As I have told you, the core of the movie is irrefutably true: the Clinton administration had 10 chances to capture of kill bin Laden. Had the 9/11 Commission not whitewashed events, personal culpability would have been assigned and we as a nation could have moved on to fight al-Qaeda. The Commission turned out to be hack-dominated, however, and ignored the documents that were presented to them, as well as the testimony it received under oath. Instead of telling the American people that the intelligence regarding bin Laden, al-Qaeda and their intentions was abundant, precise, and not acted on, the Commissioners blamed ‘the structure of the intelligence community’ for the failure and then proceeded to wreck the community with a horrendous reform package.
“The solution is really quite simple, I think. Declassify the documents and testimony of the men and women who risked their lives to collect the intelligence that Clinton and his lieutenants failed to act on. Present this information to the American people — and perhaps put some of those officers on TV to answer questions — and then let the chips fall where they may. If the critics of the ABC movie are so confident they are right, they would surely welcome this process.”
Hurrah! Bring it on Bubba! You’ve got the time? We’ve got the facts. Let’s get it all out!
PING A LING!!
Funny how we don't see Scheuer on t.v. these days isn't it.
Michael Schuer will now be persona non grata on all alphabets; he was only useful to them when he bashed Bush. If he speaks the truth on Clinton it will never be heard.
BACK AT YA, BUBBA!
Yea .. Bubba sure is doing a great job ticking off their buddies
Not a very smart move in the long run
Now that would be the perfect solution. I think the 5th year of marking 9-11 would be the perfect time to declassify those documents and it might just shut everyone up long enough for us to deliver some major blows on this WOT.
I'll bet this information could have been found in the documents that Sandy Burglar "sloppily" removed from the National Archives by sticking them in his pants and socks.
I suppose Scheur will be a hero to us for knocking Clinton but he is an Arabist of the most disgusting stripe. He blames Israel for most of what goes wrong in the Mid East. This is like gushing over Buchanan when he knocks Clinton.
I'm not gushing over him, but if he's telling the truth I don't care if he prays to idols at this point. I want the truth to come out, period.
I especially like the latest RUSH LIMBAUGH YouTube post.
unless the movie airs UNEDITED, I don't see your point.
the debate over this film, will be over by the middle of next week.
Declassify the documents and testimony of the men and women who risked their lives to collect the intelligence that Clinton and his lieutenants failed to act on. Present this information to the American people
I just visited abc.com
The promo for The Path to 9/11 is still running. The program is still included in the Sunday and Monday schedules.
