Our liberties are incongruent with the war on terror, an incovnenience to those in power. Many of us have long suspected it, and we can not thank CIA Director Michael Hayden for revealing the truth:
Why should our laws make it more difficult to target al Qaeda communications that are most important to us — those entering or leaving this country?”
Dictionary.com gives one definition of faith as “Belief that does not rest on logical proof or material evidence.” I can think of no better way to define the circular reasoning given in support of the NSA and its ilk. We are currently presented with no logical proof, and denied access to any evidence that might substantiate (or disavow) the claims being made by Hayden, and the advocates of further war powers. Those in charge have effectively eliminated any semblance of accountability. “[T]he president refused to give the Justice Department’s Office of Professional Responsibility access to the classified program.” Under the shroud of NSA secrecy, everything is done for our protection, and nothing is to be questioned. We don’t need to know what’s best for us – our government will tell us that.
Soldiers – our friends, family, co-workers – are dying daily, ostensibly to protect our “way of life,” that the current administration is hell-bent on destroying. Make no mistake, the “war on terror” is being fought on our soil, and we’re losing.
