The capture of Taliban's #2 could be more than just great intelligence work
Pakistan on Wednesday confirmed for the first time that it has the Afghan Taliban's No. 2 leader in custody, and officials said he was providing useful intelligence that was being shared with the United States. In this week's edition of The Hunt with Federal News Radio National Security Correspondent JJ Green, former CIA Senior Field Commander Gary Berntsen explains just how important Baradar's arrest was.
The US is not waiting for the spring thaw to take the fight to the Taliban. In this week's edition of The Hunt, Federal News Radio National Security Correspondent JJ Green continues his conversation with Mike Scheuer, a former Senior Officer at the CIA. Scheuer says winning the war is going to be hard, not because of the Taliban, but because of some Afghans.
Chilling words from CIA director Leon Panetta: He told Congress Tuesday that an attempted attack on the US by al-Qaida is likely in three to six months. Panetta says the terror group is deploying operatives within American borders. So what drives terrorists? Federal News Radio National Security Correspondent JJ Green spoke with intelligence expert Mike Scheuer about a radical American cleric suspected to have ties to al-Qaida, Anwar al-Awlaki. Scheuer once led the CIA's Osama bin Laden unit. And he says the answer lies in religious training.
The intelligence community is buzzing over news that CIA Director Leon Panetta threatened to quit during a shouting match recently at the White House over the news that Attorney General Eric Holder might pursue cases against CIA personnel involved in interrogation. It's no secret that there has been tension in the intelligence community, but this is the first crack in the armor, if true. WTOP has not confirmed that the shouting match took place, but Panetta's letter to employees at the CIA made clear that he was supporting them regardless of what happens.
Prosecutors say a former top CIA official soon to be sentenced on corruption charges had a history of misconduct stretching over two decades.
