AND THAT'S MY TAKE" (CIA Given Green Light To Commit Crimes)
2010 by Curtis Sagmeister. All Rights Reserved.
U.S. District Judge Alvin Hellerstein has given the green light to the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) to commit crimes with impunity as he handed down his ruling against an American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) motion to have the spook agency disclose illegal activity against detainees.
In its campaign of scare-orrism, the US government, through its various overt and covert channels, have detained citizens and foreigners in clandestine gulags without granting access to legal counsel, human rights organizations, or family. During these incarcerations, fully permitted under the far sweeping passages of the Patriot Acts, anyone and that means YOU in case you were blissfully unaware can be arrested, detained, and now legally, tortured, dehumanized or executed by firing squad. Yes, executed. It is written right into the Patriot Acts.
If you have not read the ironically titled Patriot Acts (both of them, and believe it when it is said that there is nothing patriotic about these acts), you would be shocked by the swath and depth these laws have against your personal rights and freedoms. And they apply to you, even if you are not an American, which is why it is vital that you understand the implementation, interpretation, and instigation of the tyranny contained in its passages.
Hellerstein stated that he was unwilling to "second guess the CIA Director regarding the appropriateness of any particular intelligence source or method", removing the only remaining vestige against the total annihilation of rights and freedoms in America. His ruling essentially says that once the spooks have you in their care and control, they are under no obligation to disclose anything to anybody about what they are or are not doing, legal or otherwise. And there is nothing you, or anyone else for that matter, can do about it.
Danger. Are your Spidey senses tingling yet?
The bold dismantling of personal rights and freedoms are occurring right under our noses. So smug are the puppet masters and puppets that they do not even attempt to hide their diabolical schemes. They know you of all people are unwilling to confront them. Similar plots are unraveling in every country and on each of the continents. Tyranny is being beta tested in Canada and Mexico, in Europe and South America, in Australia and all over Africa, with Asia serving as a model to lock horns with at some point in the future.
In disbelief? Review for yourself the last several laws enacted, in public or in secret, by your home country.
Perhaps the only refuge from tyranny remaining is on the continent of Antarctica, and one has every reason to believe we are incapable of evolving in such a restrictive environment. Sadly, unless we are prepared to confront and remove the oppressive powers, we deserve nothing more than to regress to medieval monarchy subjected to the whims of the gleeful few.
And that's my take.
