EDIT
America and Islam After Iraq with Michael Scheuer
AIRED:
Michael Scheuer argues that the Iraq War has been a huge setback to the United States' War on Terror, making the enemy stronger and altering the geopolitical landscape in ways that are profoundly harmful to US interests and security concerns.A twenty-two-year CIA counterterrorism officer, Michael Scheuer headed the agency's Osama bin Laden unit, managed its covert-action operations, and authored its rendition program.In 2004, frustrated with the shortcomings of the 9/11 commission, Scheuer left his position at the CIA so that he could warn the American people of the dangers we still face from terrorist attacks and how we can correct the mistakes of the past in order to protect ourselves in the future.In his new book, Marching Toward Hell: America and Islam After Iraq, Scheuer takes on the questions of "What went wrong?" and "How can we fix this?" and proposes a plan to salvage the damage that has already been done and get American strategy back on track - World Affairs Council of Northern Californiamoreless
