"Here's how terrorism really works: Slaughter people on national TV,
and watch a nation that prides itself on freedom as it shackles itself.
The feds at airports start patting
privates and taking pictures with cameras that can see through clothes.
Security cameras go up everywhere. The spooks in Washington set up
massive Internet surveillance operations and obtain secret court orders
to obtain everyone's phone records. Once it starts, it can't be stopped.
In 2007, candidate Barack Obama
railed against the 'false choice between the liberties we cherish and
the security we provide. I will provide our intelligence and
law-enforcement agencies with the tools they need to track and take out
the terrorists without undermining the Constitution and our freedom.'
Last week, the Guardian newspaper
reported that the National Security Agency collected phone records on
millions of Verizon customers, and the Obama administration defended the
move. The Guardian and Washington Post also reported that the NSA has a
top-secret operation, dubbed Prism, which taps directly into the
servers of nine leading Internet companies. Does President Obama know
something that Senator Obama did not? Or did the corrosion of our civil
liberties take on a life of its own, independent of any elected leader?
It's as if a terrorist set off a dirty bomb that is slowly spreading tyranny instead of radiation."
