On Issues of Domestic Terrorism and Cyber Security we have seen a rash of blatant over the top Pentagon fed news pieces and headlines into the main stream media with in this last week.

For example on Monday Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Janet Napolitano said that  “She is afraid of Americans” announcing that Domestic Terrorism is the Homelands Chief threat to the security of the United States.

Every major news outlet and the local networks in the nation ran unthinkingly with the Headline:

Homeland Chief: Domestic extremism is top concern

See headline search results:

“The government is just starting to confront this reality and does not have a good handle on how to prevent someone from becoming a violent extremist, she said.

In the last year, Napolitano said, she’s witnessed a movement from international extremism to domestic extremism – cases in which Americans radicalized and decided to plot attacks against the country.

“What really is it that draws a young person being raised in the United States to want to go and be at a camp in Yemen and then come back to the United States with the idea of committing harm within the United States?” Napolitano asked without citing specific cases. “Where in that person’s formulation is there an opportunity to break that cycle?”

The DHS head embarrassingly cites the accused “underwear bomber” Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, who according to witnesses was lead onto the plan by a sharply dressed accomplice who turned out to be an intelligence operative part of a larger operation according to a Detroit Newspaper.

“Patrick F. Kennedy, an undersecretary for management at the State Department, said Abdulmutallab’s visa wasn’t taken away because intelligence officials asked his agency not to deny a visa to the suspected terrorist over concerns that a denial would’ve foiled a larger investigation into Al-Qaeda threats against the United States.

“Revocation action would’ve disclosed what they were doing,” Kennedy said in testimony before the House Committee on Homeland Security. Allowing Adbulmutallab to keep the visa increased chances federal investigators would be able to get closer to apprehending the terror network he is accused of working with, “rather than simply knocking out one solider in that effort.”


It shows that DHS is intent on demonizing Americans in a fear campaign rather than a fact campaign, and the headlines reflect it. Most Americans are to busy working 2-3 jobs and have their hands around the remote control of their T.V. rather than a finger on an AR-15 or a detonator.
The obvious incident to cite would be the airplane Joe Stack piloted  into the IRS building in Austin, Texas this last week. This is strangely absent from Napolitano’s list of examples during this meeting even after Mr. Stack’s own daughter called him a Hero, for this desperate act that  caused his death and one other.
Maybe they foresee Joe 6-pack angrily getting off the couch due to economic fall out in the near future is the real cause for DHS alarm.
CNN Fakes Media Cyber-War
Another example of the Pentagon take over of the media, would be the fake cyber-terror broadcast done by CNN recently in which they acted out the scenario of hackers taking down the entire electrical grid of the nation on live television.

It has been reported that bloggers and media pieces have been purchased by the U.S. government to help shape our perspectives in regards to domestic terrorism. This time taking it one step further they simply bought out an entire network news broadcast from CNN to fear-monger the Nation with.

Amusingly enough it turns out it is ‘fear and hype’ that even the Pope seemingly has had a hard time buying into by criticizing the use of body scanners recently.
