Michael Scheuer has repeatedly spoken out against the war on Iraq. Not because he has morals, but because he thought it was a waste and distraction from America's "true" enemies. Scheuer has publicly stated that he has no problem with Americans doing torture, because he thinks it will somehow "protect" Americans. I guess that holds true when it is Americans torturing other Americans too.
But he really showed his true colors when he came out with this statement:
Scheuer proposes that the US needs to "protect" us by using violence. I guess that holds true for him even if it is violence by Americans on Americans.
Scheuer is a former CIA analyst.
Years ago, Bill Moyer said (roughly) - if they will brag about taking down foreign leaders, what would they do that they will NOT brag about? He was talking about the CIA.
