More of the same fear mongering. If you knew anything about Federal law enforcement in the United States you wouldn't be getting your panties in a wad.
On a side note, you wouldnt happen to be Tom Clancy would you? That little piece of fiction was a real page turner....er, I mean mouse scroller...

Some might find my beliefs to be a bit " out there," but I honestly think that a market was seen for military fiction (lot's of armchair generals and misguided wannabes out there) and he exploited that at the same time as buttressing the propaganda machine. Just read any of his books. You will never see any faltering of American ideologues of protecting freedom and "liberating the oppressed" (motto of the Special Forces "De Oppresso Liber") in any of them. It's always brave, heroic Americans and Brits against the evil Russians, and as of late, the evil terrorists. He, in effect, is killing two birds with one stone. He was intelligent enough to modify his writing to suit the agenda of the ruling class, and also carving a niche for himself in military fiction. But in this case, he is not nearly as benign as he would seem to be. He is just as dangerous as the Generals at the Pentagon with "bullets in their eyes," as he buttresses public backing of military endeavours through his books. Alot of wannabes that I've talked to take Tom Clancy's books as the word of God, and the funny thing is, like I said, the man never served It just boggles the mind.
