How U.S. Can Avoid ‘Looming Catastrophe’

Impeach Obama - the final solution to the White House criminals

Dr. Michael Scheuer headed the CIA’s Bin Laden unit during the 1990s, and has written bestselling books about his experiences. He believes al-Qaeda is a serious and still-growing threat to the United States. 
But according to Dr. Scheuer, the real Middle Eastern threat is not just al-Qaeda. Two Middle Eastern states - Israel and Saudi Arabia - have corrupted America’s political system and served as al-Qaeda’s allies.

In an exclusive interview with Truth Jihad Radio, Dr. Scheuer lambasted the American Zionists who have been harassing him since he began speaking out about America’s subservience to Israel, and the danger it poses:

“I don’t know if they’re unstable, or just frenetic. But they are extraordinarily vicious people, in terms of what they write to me, in terms of what they write to my employers, in terms of what they put in public print. But at the end of the day, they’re defending an indefensible position. They’re defending, in many respects, a position that’s absolutely treasonous to the United States, and incompatible with being an American citizen.”

Scheuer’s four books lay out the case that top US leaders have shown little interest in protecting Americans from the threat of catastrophic terrorism. This failure, he says, is largely due to the corruption of the American political process, as the Zionists and Saudis buy politicians and even gain control over the White House:

“When I worked for the CIA, if we were gathering information, or some kind of a collection effort that was benefiting the United States but really didn’t have any pertinence to another foreign country, if the Israelis found out about it, or if the Saudis found out about it, and you refused to share the information with them because it really had nothing to do with them or their national security, they were the two countries on earth who could call the White House, bypass the intelligence community, and get the White House to order the release of that information to them.” 

During his tenure as chief of the CIA’s Bin Laden unit from 1996 to 1999, Michael Scheuer says he had ten opportunities to capture or kill Bin Laden. Each time, he was ordered to desist. It was almost as if Bin Laden was being protected by higher-ups.

After 9/11, Bin Laden was supposedly the most wanted criminal on earth. Yet, he still seemed to be enjoying American protection! As I wrote in my book “Questioning the War on Terror:”

“If the Bush Administration really wanted to catch Bin Laden and his associates, why did it seemingly go out of its way to let them escape? After American forces and their Northern Alliance had surrounded Kabul in November 2001, a huge convoy of ‘at least 1,000 cars and trucks’ carrying top al-Qaeda leaders, presumably including Bin Laden, jammed the main road out of Kabul from eight a.m. until three a.m.; a local businessman said ‘it must have been easy for American planes to see the headlights.’ People in Kabul knew what was going on and were amazed that the Americans, who had Kabul under a microscope, didn’t bomb the convoy. ‘We don’t understand how they weren’t all killed’ said one local businessman.”

“From Kabul, al-Qaeda forces moved to Jalalabad, and U.S. intelligence agencies reported that Bin Laden was among them. A Knight-Ridder news report described how, once again, U.S. forces seemed to go out of their way to let Bin Laden escape: ‘American intelligence analysts concluded that Bin Laden and his retreating fighters were preparing to flee across the border. But the U.S. Central Command, which was running the war, made no move to block their escape.”

“On November 14th, the U.S.-directed Northern Alliance took Jalalabad. That night, once again, a huge al-Qaeda convoy of over 1,000 vehicles openly left town without any interference. As the massive convoy pulled out, U.S. planes bombed the Jalalabad Airport but allowed Bin Laden and his thousands of associates to escape by land.”

“From Jalalabad, Bin Laden and his followers reached Tora Bora. American planes bombed one of the two roads from Tora Bora to Pakistan, but left the other one alone. Naturally, Bin Laden and friends took the road that was free from interference. U.S. troops could have easily been assigned to blockade all escape routes. Instead, the U.S. military surrounded the al-Qaeda convoy on three sides only, leaving an open road to Pakistan. According to the London Telegraph, ‘the battle for Tora Bora looks more like a grand charade.’ Tora Bora locals and American whistleblowers say that mysterious black helicopters came and went unimpeded by U.S. forces, ferrying al-Qaeda and Taliban leaders to safety in Pakistan.”

“Not long after U.S. forces apparently went out of their way to let Bin Laden escape - and just six months after the destruction of the World Trade Center - Bush said of Bin Laden: ‘I truly am not that concerned about him.’ Gen. Richard Myers, the acting head of the Joint Chiefs of Staff on 9/11, seconded Bush’s remarks, saying, ‘The goal has never been to get Bin Laden.’ An anonymous U.S. official explained: ‘Casting our objectives too narrowly’ risked ‘a premature collapse of the international effort if by some lucky chance Mr. Bin Laden was captured.’ Not all U.S. officials agreed with the let-’em-go strategy.’” 
Michael Scheuer is among those outraged - and deeply worried about America’s future: “I’ve often thought that if America survived my generation (I was born in 1952) I would be very grateful.” Dr. Scheuer points out that the wildly counterproductive “War on Terror” has already destroyed the American economy, just as Bin Laden intended.

But the threat isn’t just economic. Scheuer argues that corruption, including the Israeli/Saudi influence, has helped make America “al-Qaeda’s one indispensable ally,” and he worries that a smuggled nuclear bomb is likely to decimate an American city in the foreseeable future. When I responded that if that happened, God forbid, it would probably be a false flag attack by the Israelis, Scheuer said that although he hated to think that badly of anyone, he did not find my suggestion implausible.

Scheuer said that such an act of catastrophic terrorism might destroy America indirectly - not so much through the human and economic loss, but rather by triggering the final destruction of the American republic and its constitutional form of governance.

What would it take to pre-empt this awful threat? Scheuer says Americans need to face the facts: It is the USA’s support for Israel and for oppressive Arab regimes that makes it a target. By terminating support for Israel, decoupling from the House of Saud, ending interventionism, and bringing its troops home, America would be acting in its own best interests... and very likely saving itself from catastrophe.

Will the politicians wean themselves from Israeli and Saudi bribes, and act to save the American republic?

Only if the American people heed warnings like those of Dr. Scheuer - and decide to finally start holding their leaders accountable.

The real truth on 9/11 slowly continues to bleed out

Technical experts are mounting major challenges to official U.S. government accounts of how three World Trade Center skyscrapers collapsed in near-freefall after the 9/11 attacks 15 years ago.

Many researchers are focusing especially on the little-known collapse of

We have already discussed in the first part of this analysis how the American geography dooms whoever controls the territory to being a global power, but there are a number of other outcomes that shape what that power will be like. The first and most critical is the impact of that geography on the American mindset.
