How many Americans have "suspected ties to terrorist groups" to be "eavesdropping" as deemed appropriate by Bush’s admin? May be we first need to define the term "terrorist group".
The U.S. President George W. Bush maintains that the "insider threats" originate from the American populace, not those Americans who oppose Iraq and challenged his justification for launching this illegal war.
Bush and those Machiavellians in the White House have offered up a "proposal" to "transform CIFA from an office that coordinates Pentagon security efforts—including protecting military facilities from attack—to one that also has authority to investigate crimes within the United States such as treason, foreign or terrorist sabotage or even economic espionage." And as expected, Bush’s definition of "treason" and "sabotage" is simply opposing Iraq war and the neocon master plan to invade Syria and Iran.
The Pentagon is in the business of collating "raw, unverified information picked up by the military services on suspicious activities that could involve terrorist threats," called "Talon reports," according to Walter Pincus of the Washington Post.
"The Pentagon acknowledged last week that the Talon database contained reports on peaceful civilian protests and demonstrations that should have been purged long ago under Defense Department regulations." In short, to protest against the "war" is to engage in terrorism.
Numerous Bush’s critics have tackled the fact that throughout the U.S. history a group of Jewish intellectuals had always been in control of the American government.
Looking at the past few years for instance, it was the Neocons who pushed the government to launch a trillion dollar war that has indeed harmed both the U.S. military and economy as well as devastated a sovereign country; Iraq.
Even after most of Bush’s lies in the run up to Iraq war were revealed in all their awful detail, the Neocons seem carrying on with their agenda which includes, as mentioned in many news reports, launching another trillion dollar war against Syria, following the same rules adopted in Iraq war; lying.
The Jewish lobby pushed Bush’s admin for a trillion dollar war in a series of trillion dollar wars, all of which would only benefit Israel, but which Israel could never hope to pay for.
A lot of Jewish people are still obsessed by the Holocaust myth and the specter of the return of violent anti-Semitism. In the U.S., Scooter Libby and Judith Miller seem to have this joint fantasy that they were holed up in a barn in the equivalent of 1942 Nazi Germany, and that the fate of the Jewish people rested entirely on their ability to lie and trick their way to start a war to destroy Saddam Hussein, whom they see as the new Hitler.
But the fact that Saddam turned out to have posed no threat either to the U.S. or Israel is not serving the interests of Israel; which is now trying everything possible to build a Greater Israel. Israel needs to have a new Holocaust story to carry on with its agenda, so there are no moral restrictions on what they can do, including initiating offensives against non-threatening sovereign nations, killing 100,000 or so civilians, and bombing countries’ infrastructures.
And now they want to move ahead with similar plans across the Middle East Syria, Iran, Egypt.
What is astonishing is how Israel was rarely mentioned in regard to the American plans to attack Iraq – except in the very few occasions where Sharon’s government expressed support to those plans. A proper assessment of Israel’s involvement in this war depends mainly on an understanding of the Jewish state’s position in the United States' overall policy for the Middle East, and how that policy is being implemented, whether in Iraq, Syria or Iran, according to an article on Counterpunch.com.
Following the Second World War, the U.S. emerged as the world's only undamaged major country and started to set plans that allow it become in full control of Middle East energy resources, not just access them.
After it launched 1967war, Israel's job in America's "overall framework of order" was to guarantee that leaders of Arab states that are rich with oil resources are protected from their most dangerous enemy -- their own populations, and thus prevent anything that poses a threat to the U.S. control of those countries’ oil wealth, if opposition parties came to power in one of the oil-producing states -- as happened in Iran in 1979.
And that’s why, the U.S. is willing to provide Israel with vastly more money and support than it gives to any other country in the world, helping it become the third strongest military in the world, with hundreds of advanced nuclear weapons, missiles and submarines with which to deliver them, and an air force of U.S.-supplied F-16s and attack helicopters.
