I'd like to hear your opinions about these articles Northeast Intelligence Network DHS & TSA: Making a list, checking it twice Both articles talk about how the TSA body-scanners have little to do with national security and more to do with control; it also talks about how these devices are being used to deliberately elicit social unrest, and with those opposing them being labeled as potential domestic terrorists. The government is taking down every bit of data on people who protest the enhanced security procedures. In the first article, it talks about the process by which those in power have for decades have been working behind the scenes to erode our The Constitution, as well as our National Sovereignty, to further their objectives into the creation of a Global Government (Which a rational person of average intelligence could easily infer, would likely be unaccountable to the public will). It also touches upon the fact that the individuals in question are not accidentally mishandling the current airport security issue, but are doing this deliberately as a form of organized chaos with the deliberate purpose of manufacturing societal unrest. In the second article, it goes into additional detail in regards as to how people who work for the TSA at screening points are being instructed to obtain the identities of people who criticize or protest the enhanced security measures at the airport, and to report them to the Homeland Environment Threat Analysis Division, which is part of the Office of Intelligence & Analysis (IA) division's Extremism and Radicalization branch, which is part of DHS. As quoted in the second article: To make it worse, Obama is pursuing the idea of indefinite detention again (he had pursued the idea of indefinite, preventive detention, earlier in 2009, which at the time faced resistance, and was dropped), and is now working on codifying this into law Obama Administration Weighs Indefinite Detention : NPR He effectively wants to hold people without trial, which is against what the values this country stands for. To make it worse, innocent people who could get swept up in this would be unable to get a fair trial to clear their name. If this detention includes the ability to hold a person incommunicado (Obama has been asserting the right to deny people at Bagram the right to challenge their detention). How would an innocent person victimized by this be able to challenge whether this law is Constitutional? Since the laws of war already allow a Government to hold a person until the end of hostilities, it makes me wonder who exactly he plans to hold indefinitely. Will it just be terrorists? Or will it be innocent people who are outspoken about the government's activities? Could it include people people who protest these enhanced screenings at airports?
