Perhaps it’s a form of Stockholm Syndrome.
The same person who spent nearly a decade fruitlessly leading the CIA unit charged with finding Osama bin Laden now seems to be rooting for him.
Former CIA analyst Michael Scheuer told Fox News’ Glenn Beck Tuesday night, “The only chance we have as a country right now is for Osama bin Laden to deploy and detonate a major weapon in the United States.”
According to his bio, “From 1996 to 1999, [Scheuer] served as the Chief of the bin Laden unit (aka Alec Station), the Osama bin Laden tracking unit at the Counterterrorism Center. He then worked as Special Adviser to the Chief of the bin Laden unit from September 2001 to November 2004.”
On Wednesday’s Daily Show, Jon Stewart found himself outraged at Beck’s guest. “What the f*ck is that? And by the way, here’s the fascinating thing about our culture. My guess is that you didn’t hear me say ‘f*ck.’ Because the Federal government is protecting you and your children’s ears from that type of profanity.”
