American Samizdat

Monday, January 22, 2007. *
According to a summary released by the U.S. Army Space and Missile Defense Command, the HAA can watch over a circle of countryside 600 miles in diameter. That’s everything between Toledo and New York City. And they want to build 11. With high-res cameras, that could mean constant surveillance of every square inch of American soil.

How paranoid is too paranoid? I've hit it. This Lockheed-Martin project was uncovered after an accidental fire in an Akron, OH warehouse and all I can think is that there was no "accident" involved.

I said once in a 2005 rant that Abu Ghraib, Gitmo, et al were open secrets which were calculated to keep the amygdalae of voters (some of whom might otherwise be tempted to become dissenters... and Kissinger made clear his opinion about those folks!) on overdrive since no reasonable case can be made that torture produces actionable intelligence. It ain't about the "terrorists"... people suffer or are surveilled to keep folk like me and you in line.

Stories like the above may or may not be accurate, but there was nothing "accidental" about them being revealed.

Full stop.
