Michael Scheuer: The Paris Killings Are Blowback


Micheal Scheuer, whose twenty-plus years working at the Central Intelligence Agency included several years in charge of the CIA’s Osama bin Laden unit, describes the killings at the Charlie Hebdo office in Paris this week as blowback. Scheuer, a Ron Paul Institute Academic Board member, states this judgment among his extensive, insightful comments related to the killings in a Telegraph article published on Thursday.

Referring to current and former chiefs of state in France, Great Britain, and the United States, Scheuer states:
Hollande, like Cameron, like Obama, like Bush, wants to keep a lid on the fact that we're at war with these people and they're responding to what we do and not who we are.

RPI Chairman and Founder Ron Paul presented his reasons for coming to the same conclusion in an interview Wednesday with Steve Malzberg on NewsMax TV. Watch here Paul’s complete interview.
