Mainstream BBC, more like leftstream BBC, and why is it so scary to criticize the United States... people do it everyday and there are no secret prisons they are dragged off too. Talk about hyping the fear, your whole post is about hype.. Why does the world drink so much kool'aid. I will go out on a limb and make a prediction. In a years time everyone, Mexico, Britian, France, Spain will be sucking back up to the big ole bad USA, because we will be the only ones that will be able to get a grip on this depression and be able to extend aid. BTW The mi5 agent you are referring too, was so disgusted that she left, it was more like she was showed the door, and it was Clintons Administration she has problems with.
That won't happen. It's not as if she's blown big holes in the 40 minutes WMD argument or even offered personal services to Dick Cheney.

The article makes the excellent point that FEAR is being used to erode civil liberties - I have been saying for some time that a fearfull populace is an easily controlled populace, and I believe that it has been a concerted attempt by this government.
Fear of "terror" attacks, leading to loss of civil liberties.
Fear of AGW/Climate Change, leading to more taxation.
Fear of crime, leading to new laws, greater police powers and less freedoms.
fear of credit crunch, leading to people doing whatever the government says they should.
