When you combine all the information about Blackwater that Scahill is researching and putting together for US citizens, with the power the Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act of 2007 (HR 1955 and S. 1959) would give to our government to limit/eliminate political speech rights and permit government suppression of dissent, we end up with a recipe for disaster here in the US. Everything seems to be in place for our 230-year experiment in representative democracy to go "poof." Our fear of another terrorist attack on US soil is clouding our common sense, making us so afraid of one event that we're oblivious to the already-happening attacks on our constitutional rights. Brings to mind how livestock is distracted as they walk up the ramp to be kindly killed for mass consumption.
"Global stabilization professionals," indeed. These are government-sanctioned thugs employed by a powerful corporation whose ability to grow and to continue to be competitive relies on global and domestic instability.
Wake up, America! This is not security. This is terrorism on steroids!
