Michael Scheuer: ‘Just Another Sting’ to Benefit Israel

Former head of the CIA’s bin Laden Unit, Michael Scheuer, says the the “Iran terror plot” is just another FBI sting, and talks about the real beneficiaries. He appeared on last night’s Freedom Watch with Judge Andrew Napolitano.

    So, likewise, a passionate attachment of one nation for another produces a variety of evils. Sympathy for the favorite nation, facilitating the illusion of an imaginary common interest in cases where no real common interest exists, and infusing into one the enmities of the other, betrays the former into a participation in the quarrels and wars of the latter without adequate inducement or justification. It leads also to concessions to the favorite nation of privileges denied to others, which is apt doubly to injure the nation making the concessions by unnecessarily parting with what ought to have been retained, and by exciting jealousy, ill will, and a disposition to retaliate in the parties from whom equal privileges are withheld; and it gives to ambitious, corrupted, or deluded citizens (who devote themselves to the favorite nation) facility to betray or sacrifice the interests of their own country without odium, sometimes even with popularity, gilding with the appearances of a virtuous sense of obligation, a commendable deference for public opinion, or a laudable zeal for public good the base or foolish compliances of ambition, corruption, or infatuation….

    Against the insidious wiles of foreign influence (I conjure you to believe me, fellow-citizens) the jealousy of a free people ought to be constantly awake, since history and experience prove that foreign influence is one of the most baneful foes of republican government. But that jealousy, to be useful, must be impartial, else it becomes the instrument of the very influence to be avoided, instead of a defense against it. Excessive partiality for one foreign nation and excessive dislike of another cause those whom they actuate to see danger only on one side, and serve to veil and even second the arts of influence on the other. Real patriots who may resist the intrigues of the favorite are liable to become suspected and odious, while its tools and dupes usurp the applause and confidence of the people to surrender their interests.

        Errr…Most of what he posted was straight from the mouth of George Washington, and you accuse him of not supporting our country? Please go to hell you traitor.

    ~02:10 "…because in the long run, Judge, Israel and Saudi Arabia are much more dangerous enemies to the United States than the Iranians are. The Iranians are a third rate military power that we could handle very easily. …" hmmm… so he's talking as if Iran were a military concern, which it isn't; and I doubt the US military, overall, sees her as anything but a potential 'meat-grinder.' 'third rate,' 'handle…easily' my @$$. He's right otherwise, though, an enemy of the US would love to see the US strike her.

      Point taken but I suppose Iran could also be a threat if their neighboring countries decide to ally with each other. They are all part of the Middle East, you know.

    Michael Scheuer's right. This Iranian "plot" is just bunch of warmongering bullshit directed at Iran.

    The U.S. Government lies about anything and everything. You'd be well advised to discount this latest fairy tale.

    I'm just really amazed a show and commentary such as this, would appear on FOX News Network or any other Murdoch (Zionist supported and screened) news outlet. I'm sure someone is going to catch hell for this. I support their bravery in speaking the truth.

      There's been enough backlash towards FOX, some of it probably internal, that they had to make some kind of change. But, the more things change, the more they stay the same: I noticed they were playing video of what I presume is the Iranian military. Someone there picked out 'goose stepping' sequences to play as Sheuer spoke. So some of their overt rheteric had to tone down, but there's much there that hasn't.

    Balls.

    You can tell who's looking out for people and you can tell by him calling people out that he's doing his best to help avert yet another senseless, criminal war.

    More power to him.

    Mr Scheuer will be out of a job soon for not being a Israel firster. Thank you Sir for putting the US ahead of everyone else for once!
