Fighting Terrorism with Social Control
When I posted a link
to the article
about Primakov (former KGB) being hired as a consultant to Homeland Security, I thought at first it was an April Fool's joke. It was difficult to find anything to substantiate the article, but I was reasonably sure after searching, that there was validity. Tony at abuddhas memes
found more evidence that this was no joke here: Homeland Security Projects at CSIS
http://www.csis.org/hs/ under the special project: International Council on Terrorism.
If you recall, Primakov said, "that he had been hired as a consultant and he was consulting on other "security" matters, an ongoing policy in various agencies of government to consistently narrow the rights of the American people and to expand the power of government. He professed not to know why, the reason for all this was, other than he admitted that "it doesn't have much to do with 'fighting terrorism.'"
Could it possibly have something to do with this? Republicans Want Terror Law Made Permanent
