This article from Paul Craig Roberts nails it.
....Think for a minute how easy terrorism would be in the US if there were any terrorists. Would an Al Qaeda terrorist from the organization that allegedly pulled off 9/11--the most humiliating defeat ever suffered by a Western power, much less “the world’s only superpower”--still in the face of all the screening be trying to hijack an airliner or to blow one up?
Oh, if only all Americans could sit down and read this article. One can only hope.

The latest Liberty Minute discusses the killing of Americans Anwar alAwlaki and Samir Khan without due process; the disregard of Constitutional protections of American citizens.
As always, comments and criticisms appreciated.
Powerful no holes barred Pronouncement by Minorities & Ron Paul on War, Discrimination, Drugs, War, Terror & You
My influential neocon Tea Party friend asked me this. In 2008, he voted for Ron Paul in the primaries, but has since been turned completely against him by the "leaders" of the controlled opposition over at Fox News. He favors Bachmann now and vehemently opposes Ron Paul.
I managed to get his attention by talking about the Project for a New American Century, which he had not heard about. I said that these powerful leaders had an agenda to attack all the countries we are attacking, back in the 1990's. After 9-11, they merely inserted the word "terrorism" in their manifestos.
BAGHDAD – An anti-American cleric is urging his followers to stop attacking U.S. troops in Iraq so that their withdrawal from the country isn't slowed down, a call meant to ramp up pressure on Baghdad's political leaders who are considering asking some American forces to stay.
In a statement posted on his website, Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr told his militias to halt attacks against U.S. forces till the withdrawal is finished at the end of the year as required under a security agreement between Washington and Baghdad.
NOT SINCE PEARL HARBOR, 60 years before, had we been as united as in that September after Islamic terrorists brought down the twin towers. The nation stood behind the president in his resolve to exact retribution on the men who had done this, and those who abetted the mass murder of 3,000 innocents. And George W. Bush rose to the occasion.
PRIMETIME TERROR: How TV Dramas Depict the War on Terror
What was the first finding?
Most terrorists are white, American citizens.
Six in ten Americans believe that that the United States weakened its economy by overspending in its responses to the 9/11 attacks. In particular, respondents felt this was especially true of the U.S. mission in Iraq. Two out of three Americans perceive that over the decade since 9/11, U.S. power and influence in the world has declined. This view is highly correlated with the belief that the United States overspent in its post-9/11 response efforts – the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
A new politically neutral peace group is forming. Join us:
Focus On Peace
Our purpose is to have a peace movement that welcomes people of all ideologies, creeds, and beliefs. One that makes everyone feel not only comfortable but a part of the movement. No one should feel that they are endorsing someone else's political agenda when standing up for peace. To this end we have only one focus: ending the wars abroad.
For Mother Jones, Trevor Aaronson writes: “The FBI has built a massive network of spies to prevent another domestic attack. But are they busting terrorist plots-or leading them?” Here is an excerpt from his article, “The Informants”:
