Making Americans Unsafe
By Paul Craig Roberts
-- - The Bush Regime's “terrorist” protection schemes have reached
the height of total incompetence and utter absurdity. According
American Civil Liberties Union, a private organization that defends the
US Constitution that inattentive Americans neglect, there are now one
million names on the “terrorist” watch list.
of them is that of former
Assistant US Attorney General Jim
Robinson, whose top security clearances are current. Every time
Mr. Robinson flies away on business, he is delayed by a totally
incompetent “terrorist” protection racket that cannot tell a person
named Jim Robinson, who served in the highest echelons of the US
government, from a Muslim terrorist.
confidence can we have
in a regime that is incapable of
differentiating an Assistant US Attorney General from a terrorist?
Mr. Robinson said: “If I were convinced
that America is a safer place
because I get hassled at the airport, I might put up with it, but I
doubt it. I expect my story is similar to hundreds of thousands of
people who are on this list and find themselves inconvenienced.”

business being on?
“Members of Congress,
nuns, war heroes and other ‘suspicious
characters,’ with names like Robert Johnson and Gary Smith, have
trapped in the Kafkaesque clutches of this list, with little hope of
escape,” said Caroline Fredrickson, director of the ACLU Washington
And this is America, not Nazi Germany?
How can Airport “Security” possibly

Do you really believe there are one
million terrorists and nothing has
blown up in the US since September 11, 2001 (assuming you believe the
government's account of that episode)?
How can there possibly be 1,000,000
terrorists and America still be in
one piece? If there were 1,000,000 terrorists, America would be in
ruins. According to the Bush Regime's line, it only took a handful of
terrorists to destroy America's tallest skyscrapers and a section of
the Pentagon and to send the President of the United States scurrying
to a hiding place.
One million terrorists could bring America
to its knees, and they
wouldn't need to fly on airplanes to accomplish this.
What we are witnessing with the one
million person “watch list” is
bureaucracy run amok. One
Million Terrorists makes the danger seem
overwhelming. Such overwhelming danger rationalizes the aggressive
behavior of the bullies and thugs attracted by the power of
confiscating your toothpaste and bottled water and riffling your
belongings in your luggage.

morons who comprise the
US government call the “watch list” one of
the government's “most effective tools in the fight against terrorism.”
M+G+R Foundation reminds
you that the author was an Assistant
Secretary of the Treasury in the Reagan Administration earning fame as the "Father of Reaganomics"]
What an effective tool it
is! It cannot tell the difference between Jim
Robinson and a Muslim terrorist.
The “watch list” has not apprehended a
single terrorist, but thousands
of American citizens have been inconvenienced and arrested.
The ACLU says that “putting a million
names on a watch list is a
guarantee that the list will do more harm than good by interfering with
the travel of innocent people and wasting huge amounts of our limited
security resources on bureaucratic wheel-spinning.”
It is worse than that. What
the “watch list” or “no-fly list” is doing
is training Americans to submit to warrantless searches, to abandon
their constitutional rights, and to submit to humiliation by thugs and
bullies. A Gestapo is being trained to have no qualms about
and intimidating fellow citizens, using any excuse to delay or arrest
them. Americans are being taught to use arbitrary power and to submit
to arbitrary power. In the false name of “safety from terrorists,”
Americans are being made the least safe people on earth.
