So, apparently, the Dept of Defense has created a new office, who may or may not intentionally give foreign journalists false information in the name of eradicating evil from the planet, or whatever holy crusade this whole terrorism thing has turned into. here's the link
Although I tried to ignore the hysterics (or so i thought) who were warning about the possibility that certain segments of our goverment may attemp to co-op our liberties under the guise of protecting us from the bad guys, there may be a kernel of truth (or more) in their concerns.
It would be really interesting to see a list of legislative action that has occured in recent months, that was passed as an alleged action to stop terrorism. And god only knows how much other crap is going on that we don't even know about. I'm sure a lot of it is good and useful. But to me, wrapping oneself in the flag in an effort to promote one's own political agenda or the political agenda of one's cronies is pretty evil in and of itself.
Then again, at least I live in a place where (as far as I know), it's still ok to be questioning of your goverment and not worry about getting picked up by the secret police.
