Michael Scheuer Born 1952[1] Buffalo, New York, U.S.[1] Residence Virginia[2] Nationality American[1] Almamater Canisius College, MA, Niagara University, MA, Carleton University, PhD, University of Manitoba[1] Occupation former CIA intelligence officer, blogger, author, historian, professor foreign policy critic, political analyst, adjunct professor[1]

Political party

Michael F. Scheuer (born 1952)[1] is a former CIA intelligence officer, American blogger, author, historian, foreign policy critic, and political analyst. He is currently an adjunct professor at Georgetown University’s Center for Peace and Security Studies. In his 22-year career, he served as the Chief of the Bin Laden Issue Station (aka “Alec Station”), from 1996 to 1999, the Osama bin Laden tracking unit at the Counterterrorist Center. He then worked again as Special Advisor to the Chief of the bin Laden unit from September 2001 to November 2004.

Scheuer became a public figure after being outed as the anonymous author of the 2004 book Imperial Hubris, in which he criticized many of the United States’ assumptions about Islamist insurgencies and particularly Osama bin Laden. Later in 2004, shortly after the ‘outing’ of Scheuer’s harsh criticism of America’s close alliance with Israel, Scheuer resigned from his position at the CIA. In his book Scheuer depicted bin Laden as a rational actor who was fighting to weaken the United States by weakening its economy, rather than merely combating and killing Americans.

Scheuer challenges the common assumption that terrorism is the threat that the United States is facing in the modern era, arguing rather that Islamist insurgency (and not “terrorism”)[3] is the core of the conflict between the U.S. and Islamist forces, who in places such as Kashmir, Xinjiang, and Chechnya are “struggling not just for independence but against institutionalized barbarism.”[3][4] Osama bin Laden acknowledged the book in a 2007 statement, suggesting that it revealed “the reasons for your losing the war against us”.[5][6]

In February 2009, shortly after his pronouncement that America’s relationship with Israel was a total foreign policy liability to the United States, Scheuer was terminated from his position as a senior fellow of The Jamestown Foundation.[citation needed]

Scheuer was born in Buffalo and graduated from Canisius College in 1974, and went on to earn an M.A. from Niagara University in 1976 and another M.A. from Carleton University in 1982.[7][8] He also received a Ph.D. in British Empire-U.S.-Canada-U.K. relations from the University of Manitoba in 1986.[9][10]

Scheuer served in the CIA for 22 years before resigning in 2004.[citation needed] He was chief of the Osama bin Laden unit at the Counterterrorist Center from 1996 to 1999.[dead link] He worked as Special Adviser to the Chief of the bin Laden Unit from September 2001 to November 2004.[11] He is now known to have been the anonymous author of both the 2004 book Imperial Hubris: Why the West is Losing the War on Terror and the earlier anonymous work, Through Our Enemies’ Eyes: Osama bin Laden, Radical Islam, and the Future of America.[12] After his anonymously-published books had been publicly associated with his name, he was mentioned in an Osama bin Laden statement of September 7, 2007. According to bin Laden, “If you want to understand what’s going on and if you would like to get to know some of the reasons for your losing the war against us, then read the book of Michael Scheuer in this regard.”[5]

After leaving the CIA in 2004, Scheuer worked as a news analyst for CBS News and a terrorism analyst for The Jamestown Foundation’s online publication Global Terrorism Analysis.[13] He also makes radio and television appearances and teaches a graduate-level course on Al-Qaeda at Georgetown University. He also participates in conferences on terrorism and national security issues, such as the New America Foundation’s December 2004 conference, “Al Qaeda 2.0: Transnational Terrorism After 9/11.”[14]

In 2009, Scheuer reported that he had lost his position as a Senior Fellow with the Jamestown Foundation, after “several major financial donors to Jamestown threatened to withdraw funding” if he continued in that role.[15] The funding threats were pursuant to his criticism of Barack Obama’s “dancing the Tel Aviv two-step” in allegedly kowtowing to the Israeli lobby, as well as Scheuer’s disdaining of Obama’s selection as Chief of Staff of Rahm Emanuel, “a U.S. citizen who during the 1991 Gulf War left America to serve in Israel’s military.”[15]

Michael Scheuer: Obama Is "Arrogant And Racist" | Crooks …

This exchange is odious. I thought Glenn Beck was bad — bad enough that he may be in danger of getting booted from Fox News — but in 40 seconds or so, hater-spook Michael Scheuer just laid down some of the most disgusting commentary I’ve ever heard. (Scheuer, in case you’ve forgotten, wished for another terrorist attack on the USA so we’d “learn”)

Let’s start with reality, then I’ll give you the transcript. Reality in Libya is that entire cities are being wiped off the map as Moammar Gadhafi cracks down on freedom fighters. Reality in Libya is that Gadhafi is a dictator in decline but he has no regard for his people and has no problem killing those who seek his exile and/or death. Reality in Libya is that Gadhafi is brutal, insane, and responsible for more acts of terrorism in the past three weeks than any other country in the last 30 years. This is before we get to the question of the Lockerbie crash and Gadhafi’s hand in that.

This is who the man is. And the US response to his mayhem has been remarkably measured. Via The Hill:

Obama, in remarks with visiting Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard, said he wanted to send a very clear message to those around Moammar Gadhafi.

It is their choice to make how they operate moving forward, and they will be held accountable for whatever violence continues to take place there, Obama said.

The presidents tough words come as Obama and his administration cautiously weigh further steps, including military action, in the country.

Obama on Monday greenlighted an additional $15 million in emergency funds for humanitarian assistance, and the North Atlantic Council of NATO meeting daily this week is still considering other military options. Obama has made it clear he will not pursue military intervention unilaterally.

We’ve sent humanitarian aid. We’re a member of NATO. Libya’s unrest threatens the UK and other key allies. And Gadhafi is indulging his thirst for genocide.

Now this is what CIA counterterrorism expert and professional hater Scheurer says is the motive for ‘considering military options’:

NAPOLITANO: How much of a threat is Moammar Gadhafi to the United States of America at the present time?
