I thought he was joking
When I came in to work tonight, a co-worker showed me this. It was before midnight and still technically April Fools Day. I laughed. He wasn't joking. The article is actually a couple weks old, but somehow I missed it. I feel much better knowing that the former head of the KGB (the secret police of the former Soviet Union), General Yevgeni Primakov, has been hired as a consultant by the US Department of Homeland Security.
Don't you? We will be controlled by the experts of social control. Primakov even finds it funny.
When the NICA (National Identity Card Act) gets passed, the Posse Comitatus Act gets overturned, a few other pieces of legislation yet to be proffered get passed, the White House will have more control over the American people than the Kremlin had over the Russian people when Stalin was alive. He said that and then he laughed.

What Primakov finds funny are what he calls these "right wing flag wavers" that were so anti-communist and now they're supporting a state policy of internal passports.
The irony is deafening.
Old right wing farts -- turn up your hearing aids for the irony is deafening.
Primakov continued by saying that he had been hired as a consultant and he was consulting on other "security" matters, an ongoing policy in various agencies of government (some of these offices haven't even been created yet) 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.'" more
