    It's very deliberate. Those spin-doctored State-of-The-Union justifications for what they are doing are quite obviously created for the dumb masses by people who know better.

    They know very well that terrorism has never been a serious threat to American life- compared to, say, lightning strikes and bee stings- and they knew the foreign policy they have pursued would be guaranteed to encourage, not discourage terrorism.

    So I will not give them the benefit of the doubt by saying that what they are doing is misguided, an overreaction, a mistake, a blunder; certainly not "unwitting."

    The fear of "enemies" was created because of the need for war and the desire for totalitarian powers, not the other way around.
    The tail is wagging the dog.
