The author provides an excellent perspective on the latest invasive security measures for airline travelers in the US under the cover of the "war on terror". His analysis suggests that the "war on terror" and its associated security measures are a fraud. So then, what might be the real reasons for the elaborate and growing security apparatus in the US, a country that increasingly is taking on the appearance of a police state?
With such expensive counter-terrorism activities, both in terms of the hard-pressed taxpayers’ money and civil liberties, one would think that bombs were going off all over America. But, of course, they aren’t. There has not been a successful terrorist act since 9/11, and thousands of independent experts doubt the government’s explanation of that event.
Subsequent domestic terrorist events have turned out to be FBI sting operations in which FBI agents organize not-so-bright disaffected members of society and lead them into displaying interest in participating in a terrorist act. Once the FBI agent, pretending to be a terrorist, succeeds in prompting all the right words to be said and captured on his hidden recorder, the “terrorists” are arrested and the “plot” exposed.
