Scheuer had doubts if the rebels that we are arming would really be any better than the Gadaffi regime: "I'm not sure that that the opposition, if it takes power, is going to be much better than was Gadaffi." Moreover, Scheuer argues that the US involvement in Libya would serve as a recruitment tool for extremists. "In the muslim world, this is Americans killing Muslims again, and it looks like its for oil." Scheuer also suggested the rationale behind US involvement in yet another war "at a time when we're nearly bankrupt." to which the CNN host, Christine Romans, expressed disagreement suggesting that Libya and US economy are two distinct issues. Scheuer protested "they are not separate issues, ma'am, you're just carrying the water for Mr. Obama."

I don't know if it was always this way, but when I accessed the video the OP provided, it appears to end in mid-interview, before the guest ever utters the words.
He was making good points though.

It was as if this guy verbally punched these two women in their stomachs.
They were stumbling over the comments like a blind man in a marble factory. They basically got completely and utterly handled, and after the interview must have wondered what the hell just happened.
