Former CIA Head Of Bin Laden Unit: Iowans Should Vote Paul For Safer America

Former CIA Head Of Bin Laden Unit: Iowans Should Vote Paul For Safer America

The former CIA member who was, until his resignation in 2004, in charge of the unit that tracked Osama bin Laden said recently on his website that Ron Paul was Iowans’ only choice.

Michael Scheuer, a renowned foreign policy expert who spent decades working to make the United States safer from Islamic terrorists, wrote in a post that a vote for any candidate but Paul is a vote for American bankruptcy, U.S. efforts to destabilize more nations, billions of foreign aid spending in countries involved in Arab Spring revolts, widespread Islamic terror attacks on the United States, war with Iran and a continued and growing reliance on Mideast oil.

An excerpt from Scheuer’s endorsement reads:

Notwithstanding the damnable lies about Dr. Paul’s foreign policy constantly proclaimed by his fellow Republican candidates, leading pro-Israel/pro-intervention U.S.-citizens and their journalist friends, and most of the media, only the gentleman from Texas speaks for the Founder’s non-interventionist vision of America’s role in world affairs and for plain common sense. In the Founders’ non-interventionist design for U.S. foreign policy that is championed by Dr. Paul, Iowans will find a proven road to the maintenance of America’s sovereignty, independence, peace, and prosperity. In the realm of common sense, Dr. Paul beats his fellow candidates, the Obamaites, and the media hands down. Dr. Paul challenges the interventionists in both parties on their plans for spreading secular democracy — and causing wars thereby — on historical grounds that are irrefutable because they are just good commonsense. We, the British, the Australians, and the Canadians have been building our republics/democracies since Magna Charta in 1215 — that is for nearly 800 years — and we are not yet quite perfect. If Iowans and all Americans truly think about what Dr. Paul is saying — and not what the interventionists say he is saying — they would respond favorably to the Texan’s logical conclusion that what we have not fully accomplished in eight centuries cannot possibly be attained in Egypt, Afghanistan, or elsewhere in the Muslim world in 6 weeks, 6 months, or six years, not least because none of those places separate church from state.

The Paul campaign said that the endorsement from a former CIA official who has witnessed firsthand the effects of U.S. military adventurism in the Mideast should reshape discussion about Paul’s foreign policy beliefs.

    I always thought Ron Paul’s foreign policy was the most sanest of all the other candidates.Non intervention and minding our own business is not only sound advice but also a neccessity when our country is on the verge of bankruptcy.

    People, if you’re not an ‘insider,’ you always are at a disadvantage. That is, information can be worth its weight in gold, while an opinion that isn’t grounded in quality information is worth perhaps an ounce or two of warm spit.
    Washington insiders tend to move in their own circles, and that usually doesn’t include us “mortals” (American voters). Basically, I think Michael Scheuer’s comments are right on target.
    The old “isolationist” argument is taken straight out of a pc playbook, and is brandished like a weapon in the direction of anyone who dares to contradict America’s ‘intervention at all costs’ charlatans.
    Screw democracy. This is a republic. Wiser and cooler heads determined long ago that staying out of other nation’s concerns will America a better country AND keep us safe. Those who are in love with the idea of perpetual wars via foreign intervention have sold their arses and have no use for freedom or sanity.
    Look it up, America. Ever since our “leaders” decided that we need to keep our noses in the affairs of other countries have saddled us with unnecessary wars, drained our wealth, given us generations of incompetent, whored-out non-leaders and made America the world’s “cop” FOR NOTHING.

    How could anyone vote for Ron Paul when he’s been endorsed by George Soros? Do some research on the subject and see how much they’re in bed together. A vote for Ron Paul is a vote for Obama as Soros stirs the pot.

    • s c

      T, how and why would someone like Soros endorse a candidate who has no use for people like Soros? It makes about as much sense as Putin endorsing Obummer.
      IF you are serious (and not a utopian shill) check your source(s), and get back to us with it. I’ll believe it when I can document it. Until then, you’re not doing yourself any favors by spreading such an asinine idea.

        WHERE IS THE PROOF? SHOW ME THE EVIDENCE, that Ron Paul has anything to do with globalist George Soros. Just as I suspected – there is NONE. Hey, go troll some other website.

    • s c

      T, the jury is still out concerning whether or not you’re a utopian shill. What you SAID was that Soros has endorsed Paul. That is an attempt to get ‘Democrats’ to register as ‘Republicans’ in primaries, and ‘go through the motions’ of voting for Paul.
      That would make a case for the idea that Soros thinks Obummer can beat Paul with no trouble (as long as the deck is stacked).
      This is exactly WHY you need to get your facts straight, t. You need to remember that Soros is in bed with Obummer. There’s no way that all 3 can be in the same bed “together.” As I said, bring your proof.
      To do otherwise makes you look like a utopian shill. We already have way too many of those useless airheads on this website.

    My understanding is the Soros family was persecuted by the Nazi’s in WWII and if you Googled Karl Otto Koch, you would know what the Koch family history was for this era.Karl Otto Koch was the Kommandant at the Buchenwald concentration camp and his wife was known for her fondness of lamp shades made of human skin.Also known as “The Bitch of Buchenwald”.The Soros family seems to be from a much nicer background than the Koch brothers of the Teaparty fame.
