Overstating Our Fears


www.washingtonpost.com

Sen. John McCain has repeatedly characterized the threat of "radical Islamic extremism" as "the absolute gravest threat . . . that we're in against." Before we simply accept this, we need to examine the nature of the terrorist threat facing our country. If we do so, we will see how we have allowed the specter of that threat to distort our lives and take our treasure.

The "Global War on Terror" has conjured the image of terrorists behind every bush, the bushes themselves burning and an angry god inciting its faithful to religious war. We have been called to arms, built fences, and compromised our laws and the practices that define us as a nation. The administration has focused on pursuing terrorists and countering an imminent and terrifying threat. Thousands of Americans have died as a result, as have tens of thousands of foreigners.

This is a short article written by Glenn L Carle, a member of the CIA's Clandestine Service for 23 years and retired in March 2007 as deputy national intelligence officer for transnational threats.

It provides some good information regarding the over-stated threat of "terror". There is a good reason why Osama Bin Laden and Al-Queda has not be caught/beaten. They represent the "enemy" that is a constant nemesis for the American people to fear. This technique is chronicled very well in the SOP for creating a fascist society, also detailed in George Orwells "1984. The Ministry of Peace conducts Oceania's Perpetual War.
