[/url]

Just to put current world events in perspective, here’s a transcript of a recent speech given by Daniel Ellsberg, former Defense Department analyst who released the Pentagon Papers to the press during the Vietnam War, about some troubling potential developments that would definitely impact our country for the worse in the not-so-distant future.

Quote:
If there’s another 9/11 under this regime ... it means that they switch on full extent all the apparatus of a police state that has been patiently constructed, largely secretly at first but eventually leaked out and known and accepted by the Democratic people in Congress, by the Republicans and so forth.

Will there be anything left for NSA to increase its surveillance of us? ... They may be to the limit of their technical capability now, or they may not. But if they’re not now they will be after another 9/11.

And I would say after the Iranian retaliation to an American attack on Iran, you will then see an increased attack on Iran - an escalation - which will be also accompanied by a total suppression of dissent in this country, including detention camps
.
