The People's Cube


We've already covered how prosecuters can fake evidence and frame you in a court of "law" if you're a convenient scapegoat and how those same prosecuters want to be immune from lawsuits if they get caught.

Now the Feds, in the form of our "intelligence" agencies have decided to take it up a notch. Now, apparently, if those intelligence agencies suspect an American citizen of being a terrorist who might harm the United States (by which they mean the Federal government) they can just go ahead and blow you away! No fuss, no muss! To hell with costly and time-consuming evidence tampering and show trials! With the new Ronco-brand Justice Department and NIA rules of engagement, you can just fire away and not worry about those pesky legal or Constitutional restrictions!

Don't believe crazy ol' tinfoil hat Bob? How about ABC news? "LICENSE TO KILL? INTELLIGENCE CHIEF SAYS U.S. CAN TAKE OUT AMERICAN TERRORISTS."

"The director of national intelligence affirmed rather bluntly today that the U.S. intelligence community has authority to target American citizens for assassination if they present a direct terrorist threat to the United States."

Not to worry, boys and girls. They have to get permission.

"We take direct actions against terrorists in the intelligence community; if … we think that direct action will involve killing an American, we get specific permission to do that," Director of National Intelligence Dennis Blair told the House Intelligence Committee.
Permission? From whom? Certainly not from that pesky ol' United States Constitution they all swore and oath to protect and defend? Who decides whom is a terrorist and a threat to the state?

Will it be Joe Stalin's dangerous "anti-revolutionaries" and "enemies of the people" and kulaks? Mao had his own "enemies of the state", many of them similiar to Uncle Joe's: land owners, the wealthy, intellectuals, scientists, writers, and, the most hienous of all, "possible threats to political power". How about Pol Pot's 2.5 million "New People" and "Depositees"? Or should we keep it simple like Adolph and just blame Jews.

I'm exaggerating for effect, of course. It won't be millions of kulaks. It will only be a couple of hundred of the "terrorists" as seen at the top of the post, defined by the likes of Janet "Reno" Napolitano or Rahm Emmanuel. Make an example of some, and the rest will fall in line. After all, it's for our own good.

Oh, one last thing. To all the RINO's who supported the "Patriot" Act...see, I told you so it was a slippery slope.

I think this is probably intended more for the Jose Padilla, Nidal Hasan, John Walker Lindh types than for Ben and Bawb types. I'm not sure how much confidence I have in our intelligence services to accurately target these folks. It seems to me that a frightening number of plots (like the underwear bomber or Nidal Hasan) get past the spooks, and it's left to airline passengers or an MP who happens to be standing by to stop them.

I mean, really, if they did not bother to investigate someone turned in by his father, who are they going to catch??

Bloggers will be the first ones shot.

This is probably not one of those cases where we can just say, "Relax, the government knows best what's good for us." Probably one of the reasons why the underwear bomber or Nidal Hasan get past the spooks in the first place is that the spooks are too interested in Ben and Bawb.
