Michael Scheuer, the man in charge of al Qaeda at the CIA prior to 9/11, specifically labels Commentary, National Review, and American Thinker as "Goebbels-wannabes" and "anti-American."
Nice to see the limits on civil discourse in his mind.Here's the context of his accusation:
"Too soon old and too late smart." That saying was one of my Dad's favorites, and one he used when one of us in the family re-made a past mistake, having not learned from the first error. I am guilty of that in regard to the current game being played by Commentary's Gabriel Schoenfeld and his Goebbels-wannabes at the National Review, the American Thinker, and other organs of the Israel-first media. Mr. Schoenfeld has accused me of leaking information to the media about an Islamist fighter/ideologue who was rendered to Egypt from Croatia in 1995. On the basis of this supposed action on my part, Mr. Schoenfeld compares me to Philip Agee and argues that the accused Israeli spy Larry Franklin did nothing worse than I did. Even for Commentary, the sweep of this "Big Lie" is impressive."
