Michael Scheuer - Understanding Osama Bin Laden

(3:46) Former head of CIA bin-Laden unit Michael Scheuer talks about Osama bin Laden the man, and why Al-Qaeda was so successful under his leadership. Scheuer became a public figure after being outed as the anonymous author of the 2004 book Imperial Hubris, in which he criticised many US assumptions about Islamist insurgencies. He was Special Advisor to the Chief of the bin Laden unit from September 2001 to November 2004.

He was pushed out by the pro-Israeli lobby. Anyone who is courageous enough to admit that "the war in Iraq is the responsibility of the American fifth column that supports Israel" is going to have his card marked.
