Scheuer is being used to spread propaganda

Scheuer is focused on Islamic terrorists, and what he said is true. However, Holder and the rest of the government is focused on ALL OF US. The government is looking for any excuse to raise the threat of "homegrown terrorists", but what they are focused on is anyone who has anything bad to say about the government.

Only Recently?

This segment fails to mention that Americans have had terrorist earlier then what is presented. They don't mention "The Weather Underground" and their terrorist attacks against the Pentagon and other places here in the U.S.. http://terrorism.about.com/od/groupsleader1/p/Weathermen.htm But then again, those are Obama's buddies, and even Fox News here, is protecting Bill Ayers and the Weather Underground. Shameful Propaganda.

Do you hear Ron Paul??

Doesn't the CIA guy sound like Ron Paul when he talks about being attacked not for our freedoms, but because of our foriegn policy?

Are you kidding me?

What the heck is going on with Michael Shuerer? I thought he was on our side! He talks as if he doesn't have a clue about what happened to Bin Laden, let alone 9/11. He was all too willing to be agreeable to the interviewer all the way through this ridiculous interview.

Yes, yes, yes, I know he mentioned that "they" are not killing us because they are jealous, but did you hear him say we have homeland terrorists? I mean, that's all we need. Brother!

Sounds like they....

Are trying to bring the contrived "war on terror" to America now. Americans beware, it looks like the number one killers of women and children are putting their sights on the people here....oh, I mean "terrorists".

Makes you wonder who the real terrorists are. Who does the most bombings? Who has killed thousands of times more civilians with bombs than any other organization in the last decades?

I guess if you can infiltrate a nation's government and gain control of the "news" networks and various forms of media, you can get away with anything.

Oh it's a mess....

This guy was supposed to find Osama Bin Laden

and now he is talking about this... makes my hair stand straight up

A true flower can not blossom without sunlight and a true man can not live without love.

If you haven't read

Scheuer's book, Osama Bin Laden, grab a copy. The best way to fight an enemy is to know that enemy.

Oh i completly agree Mr

Oh i completly agree Mr Scheur, but our governments wont let us prosecute them....if only we had some sort of rights and a binding contract to back those rights up, oh god, whyyyyyyy did our fourfathers not have such forsight

...so now they can justify

...so now they can justify drone strikes on Amerians on U.S soil because terrorism is becoming "homegrown" (not to mention, federally subsidized)...while they continue to act out in ways that continuously perpetuates the problem...great.

I still say he is not a

I still say he is not a friend..is everyone afraid of homegrown terrorism now??? then he did his job

What I like about Michael

What I like about Michael Scheuer is that he supports Ron Paul on non interventionism. What I don't like is that he plays along with the propaganda to get the message out.

What propaganda is that? I

What propaganda is that?

I think Scheuer is spot on and Ron Paul a little naïve when it comes to the threat of Islamic terrorism.


spot on

Here comes yet more surveillance and intrusion for Americans.

Thanks Michael.

how much blood and treasure....

....have we "invested", and yet have netted "170" arrests????

And how many of the 170

were duped setup patsies?

Yeah, I think Shuer could

Yeah, I think Shuer could have expanded on that a bit. I'm sure he is knowledgeable enough to distinguish the patsies from networks that are truly connected.
