Under-appreciated reason for 9/11 and the wars

Take a look at the technology and everything else discussed in the pbs/frontline documentary "Are We Safer?" You can watch the whole thing here...

Washington Post's Dana Priest reports on the sprawling post-9/11 terrorism-industrial complex — and its growing reach into the lives of ordinary Americans.

and here's a clip from it

It's a pbs interpretation of the crazy technological police state we're heading into, and it's all framed around "well because of/since 9-11..." and "they got to test this stuff out in war zones..."
Another constant throughout is how there's no way it can be stopped.

It's like a preview of the end of everyone's idea of america. It won't take too awful long for everyone who still "remembers the good old days" or "how things are supposed to be" to die off or whatever... and the people with all the money and technology/weaponry are going to have free reign to push this stuff as far as they'd like. And we still have a pretty good idea of how that ends up.

"Terrorists and Criminals"

Look at what the department of homeland security is rolling out now, following the media-billboard-messages in thousands of wal-marts... Detailed dramatic production pieces instructing us how to spot "criminals and terrorists." They use tense music and make it seem like a bomb is about to explode at any minute... unless we report someone, which just means call the cops

Why such a huge push for people to start making more police reports? Police tactics are getting tougher, rougher, and more invasive, so why do we want to interact with them more?

Seriously, look how much editing/production/drama went into making these...

How is this not considered terrorism?

I only watched the one for retail employees in full and parts of others, and this all seems like common sense and awareness training to me. People being aware of their surroundings and suspicious behavior and activities have saved many lives and prevented many tragedies. It's not as if they're asking employees or civilians to approach or detain anyone...just to report it to the proper authorities to be checked out. Like they said, better safe than sorry. I don't see anything nefarious or alarming here.
