Naomi Wolf's Latest -- A ‘Paper Coup’
This isn't directly 9/11/01 activism but it contains information that anyone working in our area should be aware of. Blackwater's role is becoming increasingly ominious and they are an integral part of any fascist efforts, as Wolf describes in her essays.
She states, "Increasingly, reputable figures are starting to talk about `a coup.’"
I personally don't think the martial law in Pakistan is without relevance to the near future in the US -- there is no catastrophe there except that the judicial branch won't go against the constitution and allow Musharraf to run as president again, and so he is having them taken out of their offices by police, held in house arrest, and replaced with installed justices (this sets a precedent and also echoes Bush's firings of federal prosecutors). These events are important to learn about, understand and thus predict when to act and how.
She also states, "Nothing at present prevents Blackwater agents from being deployed to help or replace the TSA domestically. Or from being deployed at the next New York City rally such as the one that is being featured on their website."
The dots are being connected. I find it unfortunate that she mainly falls back on the congress to take action, since we have just seen that only 2 senators can derail the entire rest of the Democratic congress and only in a matter of hours (Feinstein and Schumer just got Bush's torture Attorney General through), but what's important about the article is the information it presents.
