Michael Scheuer, former CIA bin Laden unit chief explains to readers that the U.S. national government needs to make the furtherance of America’s interests its first an absolute priority. If not, citizens have the responsibility to “destroy it and replace it with one that can be relied on to act only on their behalf and in their” interests, writes Scheuer, paraphrasing Thomas Jefferson.
Dr. Scheuer continues:
Trump has now said to the American people what no one, save Pat Buchanan and Ron Paul, has been willing to say since 1945. That is, the U.S. government exists for only two reasons: (a) to pursue and defend the republic’s genuine national security interests and to wage war only as a last resort, and then slay without mercy those who dared attack them, and (b) to protect and advance the well-being, jobs, liberties, unity, and prosperity of American citizens.
God bless you, Mr. Buchanan and Dr. Paul, for making sure Mr. Trump had this opportunity, and God rest you, Colonel Lindbergh, for manfully opposing, at devastating personal cost, the same kinds of blackguard interventionists who are now attacking Mr. Trump’s foreign-policy stance.
