Homeland Security - A Change Agent for Inconvenient Liberties

With the Chertoff confirmation hearing coming up this week, DHS is going to be receiving a lot of exposure. As Allan Duncan explains in his latest article, Serious Questions for Michael Chertoff, possible connections between Chertoff and terrorist financing networks have never been adequately addressed. And as if that's not enough, along comes Tom Englehart at TomDispatch to analyze an even more concerning series of articles about the mission and means of the department itself. Englehart introduces a two part posting from Nick Turse, titled The Emergence of the Homeland Security State.

Just keep telling yourself, "9/11 changed everything". The kleptocracy thanks you.
