"Bin Laden was captured long ago, Reagan's death was hushed up and the coming election has been fixed. Jonathan Raban on how the White House's obsession with secrecy has turned America into a nation of conspiracy theorists."
"Ashcroft, it turned out, knew no more than the rest of us. Like us, he or his flunkies passed their time surfing the net. When he told us that evidence for his grim warning had been "corroborated on a variety of levels", did he mean anything more than that it could be found on more than one website?"
"Just as the administration now moves in Cheney's arena of shadows, so masses of ordinary Americans are seeing themselves as self-appointed master-spies, keeping watch on their government in the same covert way that the government supposedly keeps watch on al-Qaida."
"This is an extraordinary moment in American history. Half the country - including all the people I know best - believes it is trembling on the very lip of outright tyranny, while the other half believes that only the Bush administration stands between it and national collapse into atheism, socialism, black helicopters, and gay marriage."
"... we caught a rare glimpse of government Wizard-of-Ozzery at work."
Taking into consideration this article combined with talk recently of ATS being monitored and other suchlike, I really wonder where some of the hits this site recieves may be coming from. Perhaps even to escalate that a quote from an ATS member may be given as evidence by security services for justification of invasion?

THis is not surprising at all. I have seeen things in the paper/tv/radio 1- 5 days after seeing it here. The difference is you get the whole story here and there is no spin on the facts-just data allowing us to make up our own minds about the subjects, insted of being told what and how to feel about it-network news.
