let me ask you........You think this guy is credible?

This is not rhetorical…..i want you honest opinion. Then we can talk about the pipeline.

Pepe Escobar (born 1954) is a Brazilian investigative journalist.
He initially became famous in Brazil during the 80s, writing cultural criticism for the Folha de São Paulo newspaper. His distinctive style proved to be popular and he is still an influence among many Brazilian journalists[1]. His employment in the newspaper ended when André Singer, then a journalist in this newspaper and a Beatles fan, noted that Pepe had lifted entire paragraphs from articles in the European media[2]. Singer pointed out the plagiarism in the newspaper and other instances of plagiarism were discovered - like a review of a David Bowie album that was lifted from a Rolling Stone book. [3] Pepe replied that the articles were like mirrors, a homage to the Rolling Stone Book, and that it was also a homage to David Bowie, the so-called "Chameleon". Soon after, he was be accused of lifting an interview with Bryan Ferry for a Brazilian rock magazine.[4]
He has worked as a foreign correspondent since 1985, living in Los Angeles, Paris, Milan, Singapore, Bangkok, and Hong Kong. He has focused on Central Asia and the Middle East since the late 1990s. He writes a column- The Roving Eye- for Asia Times Online, as well as regular pieces for Al Jazeera, and Tom Engelhardt's TomDispatch.com. His columns have been mirrored at Michael Moore.com, The Nation, and The Huffington Post.
On television, Escobar has provided political analysis for Russia's RT network, Iran's PressTV, Al Jazeera's The Stream, and The Real News Network. On radio, he has been a guest on Sibel Edmonds' Boiling Frogs Show, The Peter B. Collins Show, Anti War Radio with Scott Horton, What Really Happened Show, Corbett Report, The Voice of Russia's Burning Point, Ernest Hancock's FreedomPhoenix.com and The Alex Jones Show.
His article, 'Get Osama! Now! Or else...', was published by Asia Times Online two weeks before the terrorist attacks of 11 September 2001.
An excerpted paragraph from his column of August 30th, 2001: "Osama bin Laden - also the No 1 target of the CIA's counter-terrorism center - is now a superstar playing the bad guy in some sort of planetary Hollywood fiction. Yet inside Afghanistan today, where the Saudi Arabian lives in exile, Osama is a minor character. He is ill and always in hiding - usually "somewhere near Kabul". Once in a while he travels incognito to Peshawar. His organization, the Al Qa'Ida, is split, and in tatters. The Taliban owe him a lot for his past deeds towards the movement and in putting them in power in Afghanistan - contributing with a stack of his own personal fortune of millions of dollars. But no longer an asset, he has become a liability."[5]
