Former CIA bin Laden unit chief Michael Scheuer writes, “Today, Americans can look back over a 20-year trail of smoldering wreckage formed by wasted trillions of taxpayer dollars, tens of thousands of dead, wounded, and maimed U.S military personnel, and a national government so enslaved to the same interventionist and minimalist war making policies that have brought repeated defeat to the United States.”
Looking at media coverage, by example FOX, Mike tells readers, The sole soldierly source of sanity and commonsense is supplied by Colonel Ralph Peters, a man who speaks bluntly, honestly, and incisively when he states that Americans are fooling themselves if they believe the Obama administration’s deceitful assertions that its policies toward IS are leading to the group’s defeat and the United States to victory.
Scheuer tells readers, “If Americans dismiss the clear lies of politicians and generals and are ready to decide what kind of commonsense foreign policy best defends the United States, the decision they need to make is certainly obvious and easy. It is also squarely in the America First tradition of the republic’s Founders.”
In conclusion Mike suggests that Americans “elect no one president in 2016 who has been connected to the foreign policy catastrophe America has endured since 1996, meaning only Mr. Trump, Ms. Fiorina, Dr. Carson, and Senator Paul ought to be viewed as acceptable candidates.”
