Again, we are obliged to CBS for furnishing the grist for our commentary.
Notice the US is presented as an impartial seeker of truth, righteousness and justice in this story. How’s that for a laugh.
Meanwhile, who is this vaunted CBS “National security analyst” Fran Townsend?
PSEUDO JOURNALIST TOWNSEND IS A BUSH2 LEFTOVER. Frances M. “Fran” Fragos Townsend (born December 28, 1961) is the former Homeland Security Advisor to United States President George W. Bush from 2004-2007, and is currently a political pundit on TV. She previously served as Deputy Assistant to the President and Deputy National Security Advisor for Combating Terrorism. In 2008, Townsend joined CNN as a contributor, but later switched over to CBS where she is now a national security analyst for them. Townsend is president of the Counter Extremism Project.

Townsend’s resume is a perfect illustration of the pollution of media with intel and police apparatchiks, a pollution eagerly facilitated by media owners and executives, all of whom are integral parts of the ruling imperial elites, and thereby fully complicit in its crimes.
