Call me a tin hatter, but if Senator Leahy is worried about it, then so am I. Truthout.org has picked up an article from The Progressive, and it's very troubling. Our military has taken on a new sphere of action.
Go, read it, and tell me you're not worried.
Not worried yet? Let me briefly review what I see.
Like for example:
We've known for some time that the US military has been working on sophisticated "non-lethal" crowd control technology.
We remember that contracts were given out after 9-11 for building certain civilian containment camps in safe, secure red states.
And as the article reminds us, GWB quietly gave himself the authority to declare an emergency in which he can become the government.
And now there's a dedicated North American force in our military, one which was used to subdue Baghdad.
Every time I think my head can't spin around any faster, every time I think that I recognize the universe I'm in, something like this happens.
I've read "Shock Doctrine". I'm a student of history. There are no coincidences.
