Former Chief Bin Laden Hunter Speaks Out

Posted by: Hammer / 8:04 AM

Michael Scheuer, the former CIA official who was charged with building the agency's knowledge about bin Laden and his lieutenants, is strongly criticizing the CIA's decision to disband the unit committed to tracking bin Laden:

Shutting down the Bin Laden unit squandered 10 years of expertise in the war on terror, said Michael Scheuer, who founded the unit in 1995 and arguably knows more about Bin Laden than any other western intelligence official. He believes the unit was dismantled because of bureaucratic jealousies within the CIA, and that the closure delivers a further setback to a pursuit that has been squeezed for resources for the past two years.

Maybe if we put off the Paris Hilton tax cut, we can afford to have operatives combating the insurgency in Iraq AND have operatives hunting the man most responsible for the September 11 attacks.
