Michael Scheuer, the former head of the CIAâ€™s Bin Laden Unit, is asked his views on the release of secret information regarding the failed attempts to rescue James Foley and the possible rationale behind it.
He said itâ€™s a silly attempt but canâ€™t figure out an attempt to do what, listing several reasons why it is ill advised to do what the Obama regime has done.
He says â€œYou donâ€™t want to advertise a defeat, I think, and clearly we were defeated in our attempt to get them.â€ Scheuer says you also donâ€™t want to put them on the alert, telling them that we know where theyâ€™re holding their prisoners or at least that we think we know.
Scheuer also point out that by making the announcementÂ and giving the impression that we are still looking, we may have accelerated the timetable. The ISIS terrorists may move up the murders of the other two captive Americans.
Scheuer characterized the disclosure as â€œa juvenile thing to do.â€
In response to Obamaâ€™s portrayal in a statement that ISIS is a cancer, Scheuer says that Obama is where he has been since he became â€œpresident,â€ that â€œhe is absolutely clueless as to what this enemy is up to and what itâ€™s about.â€
He says itâ€™s not a cancer, itâ€™s a worldwide insurgency that we have encouraged consistently by refusing to kill them and through Obama’s “Arab Spring.”
Scheuer says the most important thing we can do right now is to close our borders, particularly the southern border but parts of the Canadian border as well.
Mr. Scheuer points out that right now, we are exposed not only internationally but within the continental United States as well. Our enemy, he says, â€œwonâ€™t be marching in in combat order.â€ They will be an insurgency that will infiltrate.
Scheuer says itâ€™s a simple conclusion of logic; close the border, protect America. But we donâ€™t have politicians who give a darn about protecting America. Theyâ€™re more concerned with not being called anti-Hispanic or anti-human rights. He says Americans will die as a result.
