Ex-CIA agent mocks U.S. foreign policy

WMNF Drive-Time News Tuesday | Listen to this entire show:

Former CIA agent Michael Scheuer isn’t a happy fellow. The man who was responsible for getting Osama bin Ladin in the late 1990s says that under John McCain, Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton, bin Laden and his allies will be huge winners.

Schuer’s explosive new book criticizes Democrats and Republicans who are all part of a foreign policy he says is not serious about going after America’s foes.

Scheuer says the next president is doomed to continue the failed policies put in place by both parties since the presidency of George H.W. Bush.

At the conclusion of the first part of our interview last night, Scheuer blasted the U.S. relationship with Israel. Scheuer says it makes America less safe, not more.

In the second part of our interview with the author of Marching Toward Hell, WMNF asked if he feels the same way about the Bush administration’s cozy relationship with the Saudi Arabian government.
