    In an indication of their growing estrangement with the Bush administration, neoconservatives are slamming the White House for failing to stop what they describe as an antisemitic campaign to marginalize them being conducted by the CIA and the State Department. This view was outlined in a memo circulating among neoconservative foreign policy analysts in Washington. Obtained by the Forward, the memo criticizes the White House for not refuting press reports on the FBI's investigation of Pentagon analyst Lawrence Franklin that suggest wrongdoing on the part of Jewish officials at the Defense Department. "If there is any truth to any of...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: So recently, ladies and gentlemen, we've been discussing on this program and people have been discussing elsewhere, how did the two terrorists in Boston get radicalized, where did it happen? Is it still jumping to conclusions to link Islam to this bombing? It is. Yes, my friends, and that would be wrong, according to the latest conventional wisdom and the latest consensus. Islam had nothing to do with this. In fact, it would be jumping to conclusions to link Islam to this bombing. And the reason is that Dzhokhar has told the authorities that he and his...
  • John Brennan and the Senate: Is anyone in Washington willing to defend America?

    Watching the members of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence (SSCI) question John Brennan — President Obama’s nominee for CIA director — drove home the utter unwillingness of so many elected and appointed senior federal officials to defend the United States. For the most part, each senator used his/her allotted time to pose irrelevant questions to man whose answers in many cases were deceptive and evasive, when they were not outright lies. One senator hit a bull’s eye when he called Brennan to task for publicly divulging a human operation that had penetrated Al-Qaeda-on-the-Arabian Peninsula but then did not follow...

    Business Insider ^ | Oct. 25, 2012, | Geoffrey Ingersoll
    Michael Scheuer was the razor sharp, burly Buffalo native who the Central Intelligence Agency chose toBusinessrun the bin Laden squad in 1995. According to a recently released book, "The Finish," written by "Black Hawk Down" author Mark Bowden, Scheuer oversaw what he believed to be the first ever inter-CIA unit completely dedicated to locating a single individual. The unit, called "ALEC Station" after Scheuer's son, employed 27 people, most of them women. I've personally heard of the unit called, "Scheuer's Harem," and in Bowden's book, some agents around Langley (home of the CIA) started calling it "The Manson Family," because...

    CIA Veteran Scheuer: Benghazi ‘Worse Than Watergate’By Kathleen Walter and Patrick Hobin Wednesday, 31 Oct 2012 04:08 PM The Obama administration’s reluctance to talk about what happened in Benghazi, Libya is worse than Watergate, counterterrorism expert Michael Scheuer told Newsmax TV, and Americans will not learn what happened because President Barack Obama wants to protect his chances at being re-elected. Scheuer, a 20-plus year CIA veteran who headed the Osama bin Laden tracking unit in the late 1990s and as special adviser to the unit’s chief from 2001 to 2004, said the handling of the Benghazi attack was not a...

    Michael Scheuer says rendition should be brought back as lack of intelligence has left UK and US unable to monitor militants.

The help we were getting from the Egyptian intelligence service, less so from the Tunisians but certainly from the Libyans and Lebanese, has dried up – either because of resentment at our governments stabbing their political leaders in the back, or because those who worked for the...

    Michael Scheuer, a former counter-terrorism analyst for the CIA, scolded CNN's Christine Romans Thursday for letting her support for the current President show. Toward the end of a lengthy interview on "American Morning" about the situation in Libya, Romans took issue with her guest saying America is "nearly bankrupt" leading Scheuer to respond, "You're just carrying the water for Mr. Obama" (video follows with transcript and commentary):

    Michael Scheuer says that Obama should have kept his “big mouth” shut on Egypt. Appearing on the Glenn Beck show on Wednesday, former CIA analyst and Osama bin Laden expert Michael Scheuer was part of a three-man panel to discuss how well the Obama Administration has handled the Egypt quagmire. Anyone who’s ever heard Scheuer’s comments on Obama with regards to foreign policy knows that Scheuer does not give the president anything close to high marks. So it was in keeping with that mindset that Scheuer blamed Obama for screwing things up with regards to both sides in Egypt: the...

    The configuration and physical impact of the bomb detonated last Saturday in Stockholm is best left for forensic specialists to evaluate. For the rest of us, the most important aspect of the event is that it constitutes yet another warning for the unctuously self-righteous, effeminate and oblivious West that Islamist attacks are based on what we do, not who we are and how we think. Taymour Abdul Wahab, the dead bomber, claimed his attack was motivated by Sweden’s contribution of five hundred troops to the U.S.-led Afghan war, the media’s printing of caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad and other Western...

    And then there is Iran. Media coverage clearly points to the increasing likelihood of a U.S.-Israel offensive war against Iran. Do Americans want war with Iran? Can their economy stand what will be another unending war? Do 300 million Americans want to take on 1.4 billion Muslims who will be at least temporarily united after Washington and Israel start a war on Iran? Do these same Americans really want the violence in their towns and cities that Iran will sponsor after it is attacked? Can Americans trust their generals to put U.S. interests first after seeing General Petraeus kiss the...

    Bill O'Reilly talks with Rep. Peter King and Michael Scheuer about the arrest of Faisal Shahzad. (Video)Rep. Peter King expressed concern over the level of information that the media had before the arrest of Shahzad, King said, "I've never seen a situation on such a high priority investigation where so much information, so much damaging information was leaked by the administration." King said that it was 'criminal negligence' to release so much information before they had detained Shahzad, he said he is going to ask the FBI to investigate who leaked the information, "Because you could have put lives at...

    A caller on a C-Span interview program Monday complained about "all these Jews" having "way too much power" in America and pushing the U.S. into wars with the Muslim world. He found his comments echoed and expanded upon by the studio guest. Michael Scheuer, the former director of a CIA unit assigned to track down Osama Bin-Laden, calmly expressed the view that American soldiers are now dying in Iraq for the sake of Israelis. (snip) The interviewer for C-Span's Washington Journal program did not react to the blatantly anti-Semitic exchange. Several other callers praised Scheuer for his position regarding Israel,...

    In this clip from the Glenn Beck Comedy Hour, former CIA agent (and complete wacko) Michael Scheuer says the only thing that can save America from illegal immigration is for “Osama bin Laden to deploy and detonate a major weapon in the United States.” Good grief. Beck, of course, nods and agrees with this warped analysis, and says, “Which is why I was thinking this weekend, if I were him that would be the last thing I would do right now.”

    In surprisingly good English, the captive quietly answers: 'Yes, all thanks to God, I do know when the mujaheddin will, with God's permission, detonate a nuclear weapon in the United States, and I also know how many and in which cities." Startled, the CIA interrogators quickly demand more detail. Smiling his trademark shy smile, the captive says nothing. Reporting the interrogation's results to the White House, the CIA director can only shrug when the president asks: "What can we do to make Osama bin Laden talk?"

    While ex-CIA analyst Michael Scheuer likened Osama bin Laden to figures such as Robin Hood and Saint Francis of Assisi in his 2004 book, Imperial Hubris, one would've assumed that with the publication of The Al Qaeda Reader in 2007, which presents a very different picture of bin Laden, based on his own words, that Scheuer, at the very least, would have stopped depicting the former as nothing more than a man with grievances fighting tyranny and oppression. Yet, according to this article, in his latest book, Scheuer is now presenting Osama's writings as being similar to Thomas Jefferson's! I...
