Governments have a history of creating problems and then claiming to be our saviors by solving those problems. Look no further than Hitler’s burning of the Reichstag and the Nazi use of this fire to justify suspending civil liberties in Germany. The atrocities from there are well known.
Now, we can thank the CIA for admitting that they have created terrorism. And we all know how our last couple of Presidents and their Congresses have used this terrorism to justify all kinds of atrocities, including killing American citizens without trial, and suspending our civil liberties (see The Patriot Act and, now, the The Freedom Act).
Unfortunately, the CIA’s actions are not speculation but are documented. For example, the CIA influenced the development of the Afghan mujahideen which became Al-Qaeda. In fact, TeaParty.org writes:
“Al-Qaeda and other terror groups, including ISIS, are documented CIA assets. The director of the National Security Agency under Ronald Reagan, General William Odom, admitted as much when he said ‘by any measure the U.S. has long used terrorism’ to realize foreign policy goals.”
Think that the Federal government is not going to continue creating terrorism and using this to justify controlling us? You had better check your understanding of human nature.
Historical precedent indicates that the situation will only get worse, whether we move towards martial law and then collapse, or if the collapse happens before martial law. Either way, you had better be prepared.
