CIA 1, CNN 0: Two newsettes suffer smackdown at hands of former CIA agent

by editor on April 8, 2011

What the only thing better than watching a former CIA agent smackdown two CNN newsettes? Hearing him say that they’re just carrying water for the Obama administration, that’s what.

Former CIA Counter-terrorism analyst Michael Scheuer is vehemently opposed to the Obama’s administration’s Libyan policy. That, of course, proves that Scheuer is smarter than we are because he’s apparently figured out what that policy is.

Liberty Underground has the smackdown specifics:

Scheuer believes that there isn’t a strong case for America’s intervention especially at a time when the country hasn’t even recovered from the recession. Also, Scheuer had doubts if the rebels that we are arming would really be any better than the Gadaffi regime: “I’m not sure that that the opposition, if it takes power, is going to be much better than was Gadaffi.” Moreover, Scheuer argues that the US involvement in Libya would serve as a recruitment tool for extremists. “In the muslim world, this is Americans killing Muslims again, and it looks like its for oil.”

Scheuer also suggested the rationale behind US involvement in yet another war “at a time when we’re nearly bankrupt.” to which the CNN host, Christine Romans, expressed disagreement suggesting that Libya and US economy are two distinct issues. Scheuer protested “they are not separate issues, ma’am, you’re just carrying the water for Mr. Obama.”

C’mon, Michael, that’s unfair. Give credit where credit is due. They’re also carrying ice cubes and little lemon slices.

Two dimwitted advocates for obama trying to sound worldly and wise, now thats funny. Michael Scheuer was obviously frustrated by having to stay civil with those two idiots.

Obama had to start the war in order to find out who was in it. Sounds strangely familiar….

CNN needs to know they have a former CIA operative working in their midst…Anderson Cooper!

CNN is like the proverbial tree falling in the forest. If no one around, does that tree make a sound? If no one watches CNN, is it reporting news?

Hey, just as an aside, am I the only one experiencing a slow down when moving in or out of this domain and between articles in this domain? I don’t seem to have this problem with other sites, but I’m having thim with this one! I wonder if the ‘men in black’ have been waging germ warfare on IHTM and infected us with undefinable viruses?! It might just be me.

I’ve been having some problems, too. But my connection is so crappy, I always just chalk it up to that. But then if I go elsewhere, no problem. Still works better than Yahoo, though. And the people here are a lot smarter.

Everything is connected. They wouldn’t have separated the issues if this was Bush. That much is clear.

Well, it was kinda like shootin’ fish in a barrel for Scheuer. It isn’t hard to show up these dumbasses on CNN or MSNBC.

I saw this and realized that these two were clueless drumbsticks for the MSM. I would have preferred watching the inside of my eyelids and I wasn’t all that impressed with Scheuer’s smackdown, I would have liked to see him rip their heads off and shit down their throats! But then again, that’s just me.

“Libya and US economy are two distinct issues” They deserved the slap down for that statement alone. How many times before Obama went into Libya have we heard the Bush and two unfunded wars argument brought up when talking about the bad economy? Now we’re in 3 wars and they still take up for Obama. Unbelievable!

Call me violent, but I would much rather watch him deliver a true smackdown to the lamestream media. Open handed, right across the cheek.
