This looks very interesting:
Why shouldn't it? We've allowed every Tom, Dick and Harry to come to our country, live here undocumented and we have the nerve to question the government when those "outsiders" get crossed up into some evil stuff. All the sudden all this technology used to track these everyday nice guys is not allowed since you might find out Im cheating on my taxes or my wife or Im into drugs And for me I could care less because I have nothing to hide. But its challenged by the ACLU and other special interest groups that are for the cause of freedom and keeping the government out. Yet at the same time our government is supposed to keep us safe? I find this whole thing a great big headache. We've become a great big whore for the rest of the world to use liberally and I'm one small voice yet my voice doesn't matter. If tomorrow things changed and the government was allowed to do as it felt over our borders how would it address this concern in a timely manner? How would it go after sleeper cells in our country fast and swiftly? How would our now messed up judicial system try these thugs in our land? I get the feeling more each day that this whole idea of Home Land Security is a frigging joke. Another check in the block and everything to do with the government have been restricted so much that even if a private security company came in to clean house they too would be halted over political issues that would prevent any good to come from the idea.
Off the Beltway there are 3 known sleeper cells yet they are allowed to live and move about freely with no regard to arrest or questioning? What is wrong with this picture?
I couldn't agree more. The program Kathianne referenced in her post made it clear that a lot of our zeroing in on terrorist activity in this country has come by sheer luck, not through our intelligence gathering efforts or sources. Here was an operation going on right in front of everyone's noses, and no suspicions were aroused--not when a bunch of Arabs were purchasing just under the limit where, by law, paperwork would have had to be originated, not when highway policemen stopped the trucks with Arab drivers carrying the contraband, not when they applied for and obtained a sizeable loan from the Small Business Administration. Nothing more helpful and hospitable than giving them American taxpayers' money to help them finance their activities. How naive is America? And the libs and MSM are doing all they can to dumb down Americans even more regarding this relentless and determined enemy--and they are succeeding.
