Be afraid folks - be very afraid

Newsweek has a story in their February 13 edition that carries the headline "Can the President Order a Killing on U.S. Soil?"

...a Justice Department official suggested that in certain circumstances, the president might have the power to order the killing of terrorist suspects inside the United States.

Which wouldn't be as frightening if this administration had shown even a rudimentary understanding of the words "terrorism," "terrorist," or "terror." They have not.

They like to keep telling us "We're at war." And yet when our troops are out on a mission, and the Iraqis fight back, the Iraqis are immediately and automatically referred to as "terrorists." They are not. They are simply fighting back against an invasion and occupation by a foreign country. And before you cite the equally insidious "foreign terrorist" lie - check here and here.

Terrorist, terrorism and terror have become nothing more than verbal bullets in the Bush administration's fear mongering gun.

So read between the lines, folks. Anyone who opposes the Bush administration and/or their misguided, criminal polices automatically becomes a "terrorist suspect" - whether they be an Iraqi in Iraq - or an American in America.

Again, be afraid - be very afraid.
