Scheuer on Bin Laden VideoAfter reading a series of largely inane commentaries on Osama bin Laden's video statement of last week, it was refreshing to read former CIA chief Michael Scheuer's always blunt and knowledgeable take on the message. It should be required reading for all those who seek to make ideological hay from the video. It is possible to be both patriotic and realistic, and we need a lot more of the latter at this juncture in American history.
