What I think about Homeland Security and the New Supposed Threat

"I don't believe there is an Al Qaeda threat, more than likely the inside chicken hawks have another bombing planned for the US in the near future."

Chertoff has a "gut feeling" Al Qaeda will attack this summer

MSNBC just now reported that Homeland Security's Michael Chertoff announced today that he has a "gut feeling" that Al Qaeda will attack the U.S. this summer.

Can we please get an early release of Loose Change Final Cut?

It looks like the fascists are preparing us for another false flag attack, and we need people to be educated about this so they see through it!

Israel's Post-911 Economic Boom

Gaza in the hands of Hamas, with masked militants sitting in the president's chair; the West Bank on the edge; Israeli army camps hastily assembled in the Golan Heights; a spy satellite over Iran and Syria; war with Hizbullah a hair trigger away; a scandal-plagued political class facing a total loss of public faith. At a glance, things aren't going well for Israel. But here's a puzzle: why, in the midst of such chaos and carnage, is the Israeli economy booming like it's 1999, with a roaring stock market and growth rates nearing China's?

Police State Infrastructure Emerging

Localities Operate Intelligence Centers To Pool Terror Data

So-called "fusion centers" of intelligence gathering have arisen since 9/11, with the assistance of $380 million in federal funding. This WashPo article notes the quiet convergence of local policing and Homeland Security:

"But the emerging model of "intelligence-led policing" faces risks on all sides. The centers are popping up with little federal leadership and training, raising fears of overzealousness such as that associated with police "red squads" that spied on civil rights and peace activists decades ago. The centers also face practical obstacles that could limit their effectiveness, including a shortage of money, skilled analysts, and proven relationships with the FBI and Homeland Security.

Still, the centers are emerging as a key element in a sometimes chaotic new domestic intelligence infrastructure, which also includes homeland security units in local police forces and 103 FBI-led terrorism task forces, triple the number that existed before the Sept. 11 attacks."
