The U.S. government has repeatedly claimed that it was launching aggressive programs solely at foreign enemies, and then launched them at American citizens. For example:
In 2002, the Pentagon announced that it was considering spreading false propaganda in the foreign press. However, the military has spread propaganda within the U.S. in an operation so aggressive that one participant, a military analyst, called it "psyops on steroids"
For many years, the government has claimed that it was only spying on foreigners. But it is now clear that the government is massively spying on American citizen's home and cellphone calls, email and internet usage, credit card and other financial transactions, and just about every other facet of our personal lives.
Can anyone see a pattern here?
Given the above, should we believe that the following programs will just be limited to foreigners?
The Pentagon is running an artificial intelligence program to see how people will react to propaganda and to government-inflicted terror. The program is called Sentient World Simulation:
And as former former Congressman Dan Hamburg and others have pointed out:
Beginning in 1999, the government has entered into a series of single-bid contracts with Halliburton subsidiary Kellogg, Brown and Root (KBR) to build detention camps at undisclosed locations within the United States. The government has also contracted with several companies to build thousands of railcars, some reportedly equipped with shackles, ostensibly to transport detainees."
But many people have pointed out that the laws governing the program are so vague that they could lead to the imprisonment of American citizens for simply speaking out against the government (see also this)
Actions which the government claims were launched against non-U.S. citizens have in the past been used against Americans within the United States. Why should we believe any differently about its new, even more tyrannical programs?

Well Dimentionaldetective, you sure do not hide your hate for the republicans. Your threads prove that. I was just wandering, as I try to figure out why all the polorizing discussions you start, would you feel the same if the Dems were in power and responsable for this?
If the Democrats get into the white house next term will you scrutinize their every action?
Will you call Obama/Hilary the childish and ignorant names you call the current administration?
By the way, I am not affiliated with any political party, since I like having the freedom to choose for myself. Just wanted to know where you came from since you post the same type of threads over and over.
