Official: Michael Scheuer (CIA Bin Laden Unit Chief) Endorses Ron Paul 1/3/12 [NEWS COVERAGE]

This NEEDS to get on EVERY news station in the country!

Michael Scheuer, the CIA’s former agent charged with tracking Osama bin Laden, endorsed Ron Paul in a Sunday column he published on his website.

In the piece, Scheuer said: “Electing anyone but Ron Paul will further increase the already strong chances of widespread Islamist-conducted violence inside the United States.”

“Michael Scheuer understands that only Dr. Paul will put our national security first and stop the foreign wars and nation building,” said Jesse Benton, national campaign chairman. “Our campaign is very proud to have his support.”

Scheuer spent 22 years as a CIA intelligence officer, and is now a blogger and political analyst who serves as an adjunct professor at Georgetown University’s Center for Peace and Security Studies.

He served as chief of the Osama bin Laden tracking unit at the Counterterrorist Center from 1996 to 1999. He also worked as a special adviser to the chief of the bin Laden unit from September 2001 to November 2004.

A little bit of Ron Paul style LOVE is due that young lady!!

Awesome! Can we PLEASE all

Awesome! Can we PLEASE all email Cavuto and Blitzer to get Scheuer on ASAP regarding this? How powerful would this be?

Can you provide email links?

A lot more people will respond quickly with links. Thanks.

As Powerful as It Can Be

It would be the most powerful argument that can be imagined...

When He Speaks With...

Drudge worthy...

And would be excellent to make sure this is used as a talking point by the campaign and sent to any upcoming interviews... (and to Iowa caucus goers since this is going to be a point that they will need to address).

Ron Paul is the BEST foreign policy choice for keeping America safe!

I saw a comment that something along the lines of "Putting America First." I like this as a slogan for the campaign... It is true, and embodies everything Ron Paul talks about... And it is a sound bite that the general masses can get behind.

Make the Title More Attractive

Title:

Chief of the "Osama bin Laden" CIA Unit Endorses Ron Paul

would attract more attention, and put it on the front page..

BUMP

!!!

Jesus is the saviour of the WHOLE WORLD, "As in Adam all die, so too in Christ ALL shall be made alive." (ICor.15:22) All means all. The pagan 'hell' of literal fire & eternal torment is a lie and is SPIRITUAL TERRORISM. http://www.hopebeyondhell.net

Ron Paul Facebook

At least Ron Paul should post it on his facebook...

If so...

Then the campaign is making a huge mistake in not citing this more often in recent interviews. Every time his foreign policy is brought into question, THIS above almost anything else needs to be mentioned.

I understand that "argument of authority" is generally a bad practice in debate and discussion, but politics isn't about debate, it is about perception and popularity.

Hmm, thanks. Guess I never

Hmm, thanks. Guess I never saw this for whatever reason. Today is the first actual NEWS coverage I've seen on the matter in the Des Moines Register. Why is this not catching any news at all?

To The Top

I regret that it did not come earlier, yesterday...

I thought the same thing, and

I thought the same thing, and that I wish he'd done it through an op ed in a major newspaper or something. WE NEED to get the word out on this. I just watched Ari Fleisher on CNN say Ron Paul's foreign policy is "dangerous" and that America would be "very vulnerable..." I'd like to hear him say that with Scheuer on camera!

It's imperative that we get this out ASAP, as in TODAY! It's the ONLY thing keeping Paul from going viral. People are MISGUIDED about what threatens their safety and freedom. An authority like Scheuer can set em straight or at least get em to examine things further!

send to Drudge

twice.
