My Reaction to Chernoff's "Gut feeling"

Secretary Chernoff’s comment last week that he had a "gut feeling" that the United States faced a heightened risk of attack this summer made the alarm bells go off in my head. There can only be three reasons for making this comment:

1. A desperate attempt to remind (frighten) the American people of their need to surrender their freedoms for the greater good, (Protecting the Homeland).

2. A lame attempt to somehow indirectly rationalize the occupation (war) in Iraq.

3. A propaganda prelude to either a real terrorist attack or a Dick Cheney manufactured terrorist attack.

What really scares me is that when I first heard the Secretary's “gut feeling” comment, my first reaction was “My god, they are to going covertly launch an attack on the United States and blame it on Al Queda!” Perhaps I am just paranoid, but maybe I'm not?

The war in Iraq is over - If you want it! Call your representatives, your newspapers, your radio stations, your television stations-Talk to your friends, your neighbors, and your coworkers. The power to end this war, the power to stop the killing, the power to bring our sons and daughters home is in your hands. Do something today, tomorrow and the next day to stop the madness. The war in Iraq will be over - If you want it to be!

Hostage Nation: Set us Free from Bush and Cheney

It is obvious that it is time for the people of the United States to speak, not through representatives or leaders, but with their own voices. I propose that, “A million voices of the American people” march on the White House to demand the resignation of George Bush and Dick Cheney. People of the United States, organize now! End this reign of criminals and restore our Democracy!

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.
