Fake Terror Alert Extended
Wednesday, August 7, 2013
Announced embassy and consulate closures continue all week. Perhaps longer if ordered. Doing so facilitates deception.
It reflects duplicitous fearmongering. It’s to fool people. It serves America’s hidden agenda. It targets dissent. It subverts civil liberties.
It’s to silence lawless NSA spying critics. On Sunday TV talk shows, Republicans and Democrats agreed. Terror threats justify NSA surveillance, they claim.
According to Senator Saxby Chambliss (R. GA), there’s “an awful lot of chatter out there.” NSA monitors it electronically. “If we didn’t have these programs then we simply wouldn’t be able to listen in on the bad guys.”
Senator Lindsey Graham (R. SC) said, “The NSA program is proving its worth yet again.”
Rep. Dutch Ruppersberger (D. MD) added:
The good news is that we picked up the intelligence. And that’s what we do. That’s what NSA does.
Other congressional members made similar comments. They lack credibility. They facilitate lawless NSA spying. They aid and abet wrongdoing. They enlist public support for what demands condemnation.
