Michael Scheuer, the former head of the CIA’s “Bin Laden Unit”, defends Ron Paul’s foreign policy positions that our overseas military empire does the US more harm than good. This is in stark contrast to Monday’s CNN “Tea Party Express” Republican primary presidential debate, where following an attack by neocon former senator Rick Santorum, Tea-o-con members of the studio audience ignorantly boo’ed Ron Paul for explaining the real reasons of Middle-eastern hatred toward the United States.
Boo’ing Ron Paul’s truthful explanation shows the so-called “Tea Party” mainstreamers have a long way to go in differentiating domestic big government from big government abroad, and that unless we face the motivations of our enemies, our overseas militaristic interventionism will continue to make the US a growing target of terrorism. The CIA itself even admits this, calling it “blowback”. Yet neocon talking heads like Santorum continue to mindlessly froth that bombing everything in the Middle East, aside from Israel, will make us safer.
