Former CIA Analyst Tells Truth About Libya Intervention On CNN, Hilarity Ensues

Tyler Durden's picture


Former CIA analyst Michael Scheuer appeared on CNN and told his lovely blonde and brunette anchors the truth about what is really happening. The hilarious Stepford Wives reaction and the unprecedented cognitive dissonance the ensues is worth the price of admission.

Not so.  What's to prevent CNN or its parent company from sending in a takedown notice for that?  I'd be surprised if that video is up tomorrow.

I think that people here should participate in the Streisand-effect now.  Or not, that's just an opinion.  Please don't sue me.

I don't think the "news-bimbos" as they're being called here are at all dumb.


They're looking for a paycheck, just like anyone else.


If they speak the truth themselves, they will not be getting that paycheck anymore.


They're doing what they were trained to do, probably after taking several years of over-priced college courses for which they have more than a dacade of student loans to pay off.

I wonder why Scheuer didn't ditch his CIA issued facial hair when he retired, and whether he was/is counted on the information or the disinformation side of their ledger. 

As much as I dislike Scheuer, I must admit that's about the clearest demonstration of superiority I have seen in a public setting in a long while.

To be as good as he makes himself out to be in that game, one must have a zen like detachment from politics, which he does not, to match the equally required zealous disdain for politicians, which he does.  In the absence of knowing him personally, I have to go with instinct.  But since he is in the business of information/misinformation it is entirely possible he is better than I think he is, and I would never know it. 

Mon, 04/04/2011 - 13:54 | 1133315 Encroaching Darkness

I'm not that familiar with Scheuer, and it's tough to judge character on one clip. Knowing, however, that politics must play a part in the CIA just like the "Department of Justice", it's tempting to say that he does see reality, and that his reports probably got "tempered" passing up through the chain of command, before being thoroughly watered down and inverted to support the pre-existing prejudices of those in power at the moment.
You've got to wonder: boots on the ground, involved people with brains see "X" occur, and report accurately on it. Up at regional, the regional chief gets the report, is close enough to see it's true, and knows it won't please HQ. What to do? "Temper" it a little, use weasel words to introduce uncertainty, and pass it up. Multiply by four more levels, and "X" has become "A". "theta" , "aleph" or possibly something Cyrillic my keyboard doesn't provide, if not Klingon.
I cannot believe EVERYONE in the CIA, NSA and various other alphabet-soup agencies are idiots; the good ones give us valid, useful intelligence, and the political hacks give us the Bay of Pigs, Iranian revolution, and so forth.
He's spot-on about the need that many of our politicians have to control other people's behavior; it's almost a requirement to run for office these days. Let us learn to recognize their personalities, so that we quit messing up the world so much by electing them into positions of power.

The Susan Roesgen Tea Party Report: What CNN Didn’t Show You   •  April 17, 2009



Remember this snotty, combative, openly hostile CNN “journalist” whose coverage of one of the tea parties yesterday was the high water mark for liberal scorn and derision aimed at the tea party movement?
Here’s what CNN didn’t show you.


Its little wonder CNN is hemorrhaging viewers.
Oh, and by the way, when CNN and Roesgen was covering an anti-Bush rally in 2006 she wasn’t nearly as concerned about the protesters comparing Bush to Hitler as she was about the tea party folks comparing Obama to Hitler.
Here’s a hint: Both are wrong.
Update: For the record, here’s how Roesgen covers a left-wing rally:

He didn't say anything we didn't know but it is nice, every so often, when someone comes on to confirm the reality. Pure evil and hubris has taken over our federal gov't. I'm sure some here will call for new leadership, especially Ron Paul. But Ron Paul serves a great purpose to those in power. It allows those Citizens who would otherwise recognize the farce that is our "democracy" to hope and believe that there will be change if Dr.Paul was elected president. I am a fan of Ron Paul as a person and a teller of truth. But he is also being used to make otherwise reasonable men into believing in statism. What is happening in our gov't was written in stone from the foundation of gov't. This is what happens to all govts. Ours is nort different. Ron Paul will never be elected. When it is apparent that he is not going to be elected then his followers will scramble around to vote for the next best option. And waiting for those followers will be Huckabee, Romney, Palin etc.
Govts start wars Gov't steal your hard earned labor. Gov't choose favorites. Gov't create central banks. Govts divide the populace. But govts offer you leftover scraps of what they've stolen from you. Fighting over those scraps (public union jobs, tax cuts, etc) truly misses the point.

Yes, Ron Paul is a lightning rod to capture all that energy and make it harmless.  Jon Stewart is another example--you watch his show and get all self-righteous and then laugh it off and nothing productive happens that would change anything.

TpTB will do whatever to keep him in the fold but they will also do whatever it takes to not allow him to have a position of real authority. This is a balancing act: to allow his followers to continue to believe in a rigged system based on the hope that Dr. Paul may one day be elected to a position of power. I would much rather Dr. Paul come out and just admit that there are no real answers to our problems within the confines of a rigged game. He has been in congress for more than 30 years. Very little has been accomplished during that time in terms of decreasing the size of gov't. If he was to state that this is a fruitless endeavor then he would be able to take his supporters with him. They would not be voting at all. A choice to not vote carries power in and of itself. It represents a person's disagreement with the current system. The beast needs to fed with votes. The beast can be starved. Don't vote.

The best thing about the interview is seeing Michael Scheuer shove the shit back into the bitches faces. 

When I watch a video of an interview of a knowledgable person, I don't expect to be confronted by the opinions of the interviewer. They are there to assist the subject in expressing his views as completly and as articulately as possible. that is their function and should be there job.  What the hell has happend in the few years since I quit watching television. When did the interviewers views become the issue. I have been irritated about this for some months now. Dumb moderators, and no name co-guests trying to discredit and invalidate well known and respected opinion makers has become to be the norm. I am glad to see others share the same outrage. I thought Joe Pyne died about 40 years ago, let his kind of journalism go to the grave with him.

I think it began with Fox, and in fact Chetry began on Fox.

I wish all the shit-for-brains airheads on tv (male and female) would explode. And good riddance.

But your comment about "well known and respected opinion makers opinion-makers" troubles me; news reporters should report news, not shape, express, or "make" opinions. Opinions are for the editorials and should not be confused with news. My cousin says opinions are like arseholes; everyone has one.

Indeed.  This is one of the more annoying things about NPR in particular -- hosts arguing with their guests, and asking leading questions with their opinions embedded in the language.  There's also the technique of having the reporter's speech interlaced with short tidbits of the subject's own speech, giving the impression that the subject is the source when in reality they have been heavily edited.

The "new" report about CIA being on the ground in Libya might make us forget the CIA has been on the ground in Libya for a long time. Most likely supplying weapons as well.

Some people still believe the government controls our military. Maybe the same people believe the government controls our banks too. Our military is the enforcement arm of the world's oligarchy and they act when it's in their best interests to do so. Cost? Give me a fucking break. Oil is the only currency that matters here.

I have seen Michael Scheuer on FAX as well - it is refreshing to say the least to hear at least one person who has the courage and morality to tell it like it is as opposed to the endless spin. I especially love it when he does it to a couple of bimbos who haven't a clue about what they are reporting on and only have the IQ to read and report what is on their telprompters.

Scheuer's most important point is that because the CIA are in there that US troops are definitely going to be going in soon?

I dont see this.

He said that Obama and his EU buddies didn't expect Kdaf to resist. It will take time for the men in black to ramp up the rebels into an effective fighting force.

By then, Kdaf might have them by the throat and the O team is painting themselves into the corner of admitting defeat and letting the rebels get crushed, or direct intervention.

Change you can believe in, unfortuantely the change is not good for us of the Dwindling Majority.

ATTACKING Libya, engaging in a WAR against a nation that did NOT attack us. Hey Obama it is nearly 4 WEEKS since the Japanese have been spreading radiation materials over the USA, how about DEMANDING that they entomb those reactors as was done in Chernobyl? TOO LATE, I realize that, a REAL president would have put the MUSCLE on the Japs on Saturday March 12th, but .gov doesn't give a damn about the dwindling Majority.

these blithering CNNT bimbos have their panties in a knot over the unexpectedly trenchant analysis provided by "former CIA analyst" Scheuer. in a scene reminiscent of the movie "Idiocracy" we are treated to a remarkable and cleverly successful misdirection supplied by Mr. Scheuer as well as a revealing glimpse into the increasingly ridiculous, transparent, and pretentious attempts at selling news via these gussied up robotic mannequins spewing their prerecorded doublespeak.

Unfortunately they are only emblems of the larger context of disinformation and propaganda to which Scheuer referred in his aspersions directed at the termagant Susan Rice to which they took notable exception. Rice, together with Samantha Powers and the odious lesbian Clinton form the feminist triumvirate much at the forefront of this latest US/NATO juggernaut now laying waste to the Levant. Kudos to the Hedge for this foray into our ongoing theater of the absurd.

If you ever needed proof that the mainstream stations are coaching their anchors on what messages are acceptable, even for open debate, this clip proves it beyond a reasonable doubt.  I know there is a lot of healthy debate on this site around where the economy is going, but I think we can all agree that the government is treating the people like children trying to control the messages they can or cannot hear. This is both entertaining and terrifying. How much longer before even this forum needs to be pushed underground in a secret society?

Al Qaeda: Pawns of CIA Insurrection from Libya to Yemen

After two weeks of imperialist attack, Libya is being mangled by al Qaeda terrorists, civil war, NATO air raids, cruise missiles, Predator drones, and C-130 gunships – all made possible by the CIA-backed al Qaeda rebels of Cyrenaica. US, British, French, and Dutch commandos have taken leadership of the rebel forces, and are arming them with modern weapons in flagrant violation of the arms embargo specified in UN Security Council resolution 1973. Al Qaeda is also stealing heavy weapons on its own, as the president of Chad has reported. The singing tomorrows of the fatuous US-UK color revolution rhetoric have dissolved, exposing the hideous reality of a brutal, cynical, imperialist drive to destroy the modern nation-state itself.

Tyler - another brilliant expo.

"American citizens have news explained by dum broads and can't make any sense of it"

Glad Mike mentioned the Mujhadeen - lets hope arming these rebels works out better than that did (or did the US not know that's where Bin Laden got his training - well to find out they need 'investigative reporters'....uh oh dumb broads back again)


To  be fair (on one of mike's comments) - although there was a trade embargo - it wasn't allowed very long to 'work'. Gaddaffi cannot produce his own arms, he has to rely on the west. All the rebels needed to do is consolidate Benghazi and hold out until Gaddaffi ran out of ammo.

There are a lot of 'whacky' people making 'whacky' claims about terrorism and such, which only serves as a great tool to lump ALL who QUESTION the official verson of reality as moonbats.

A proper discourse on the whole topic of what's real and what may not be requires a differentiation of the claims made and a look at the supporting evidence -

Is Al Qaeda Fake?

Is Al Qaeda Just a Bush Boogeyman?

Is it conceivable that Al Qaeda, as defined by President Bush as the center of a vast and well-organized international terrorist conspiracy, does not exist?

To even raise the question amid all the officially inspired hysteria is heretical, especially in the context of the U.S. media's supine acceptance of administration claims relating to national security. Yet a brilliant new BBC film produced by one of Britain's leading documentary filmmakers systematically challenges this and many other accepted articles of faith in the so-called war on terror.

"The Power of Nightmares: The Rise of the Politics of Fear," a three-hour historical film by Adam Curtis recently aired by the British Broadcasting Corp., argues coherently that much of what we have been told about the threat of international terrorism "is a fantasy that has been exaggerated and distorted by politicians. It is a dark illusion that has spread unquestioned through governments around the world, the security services and the international media."


Terrorism is deeply threatening, but it appears to be a much more fragmented and complex phenomenon than the octopus-network image of Al Qaeda, with Bin Laden as its head, would suggest.

While the BBC documentary acknowledges that the threat of terrorism is both real and growing, it disagrees that the threat is centralized:


"There are dangerous and fanatical individuals and groups around the world who have been inspired by extreme Islamist ideas and who will use the techniques of mass terror ? the attacks on America and Madrid make this only too clear. But the nightmare vision of a uniquely powerful hidden organization waiting to strike our societies is an illusion. Wherever one looks for this Al Qaeda organization, from the mountains of Afghanistan to the 'sleeper cells' in America, the British and Americans are chasing a phantom enemy."

The fact is, despite the efforts of several government commissions and a vast army of investigators, we still do not have a credible narrative of a "war on terror" that is being fought in the shadows.

Consider, for example, that neither the 9-11 commission nor any court of law has been able to directly take evidence from the key post-9-11 terror detainees held by the United States. Everything we know comes from two sides that both have a great stake in exaggerating the threat posed by Al Qaeda: the terrorists themselves and the military and intelligence agencies that have a vested interest in maintaining the facade of an overwhelmingly dangerous enemy.

Such a state of national ignorance about an endless war is, as "The Power of Nightmares" makes clear, simply unacceptable in a functioning democracy.

(I long ago surmised that behind many of the inane comments made here are testosterone-driven adolescent males not yet possessing fully-developed brains.) There is nothing any more stupid, vapid or uninformed about these CNN anchors' questions to the interviewee than what I have seen from male anchors on MSM. While I agree they were carrying the MSM tag line, their questions were actually more thoughtful than some of the crap I have seen come from the mouth of anchors with penises. The comments here that attack this piece not on substance, but on the fact that it was two pretty women (albeit one in a ridiculous yellow shirt) posing the questions, are more superficial than the questions these women asked.
