This will be a good piece to listen to before (or after) I write part 3 of War is the Health of the State.

Dr. Michael Scheuer was the head of the CIA’s Bin Laden unit for 14 years. He has authored several books on US foreign policy, imperialism, and terrorism. While I disagree with Scheuer on his solutions, and even find some of his CIA-brand commentary shocking (yet interesting,) his analysis of the problem is spot-on.

This is also a great introduction to the Scott Horton interviews. His irreverent style, great quips and a tendency to go on rants are well represented in this bit. I don’t miss a single one: Scott Horton interviews Michael Scheuer – May 19, 2007
