US Government Target American Bloggers As Enemy Propagandists

I have kept this article as is because it's wording and structure speak volumes and it wouldn't do it any credit to change the text.

Government Targets American Bloggers As Enemy Propagandists Military, Homeland Security, Bush White House strategy sharpen knives against anyone critical of the "war on terror"

Recent scientific polls that show around 84% don't believe the
government's explanation behind 9/11 and others confirming the
fact that support for the war in Iraq is at an all time low
have led the Bush administration to sharpen their knives
against the new breed of perceived "enemy propagandists,"
bloggers, journalists and online activists who dissent against
the "war on terror."

As Raw Story reports, CENTCOM announced earlier this year
that a team of employees would be "[engaging] bloggers who
are posting inaccurate or untrue information, as well as
bloggers who are posting incomplete information."

So when you're wasting your time arguing the finer points
of the collapse of Building 7 or the quagmire in Iraq with
someone who seems unable to grasp basic principles, your foe
could well be sat behind a plush U.S. government desk in a

CENTCOM is infiltrating blogs and message boards to ensure
people, "have the opportunity to read positive stories,"presumably
about how Iraq is a wonderful liberated democracy and the war on
terror really is about protecting Americans.

The CENTCOM website features a useful section, "What Extremists
Are Saying," which provides a full catalogue and showcases the
diatribes of US government agents Abu Mus’ab al-Zarqawi,
Ayman al-Zawahiri and their sympathizers - rhetoric that CENTCOM
hopes surfers will seek out in order for them to grasp a true
understanding for the necessity of bombing the shit out of another
broken backed defenseless country in the name of "freedom."

The jaw-dropping hypocrisy of a regime and its military attack
arm that has engaged in the most gargantuan of deceit and
propaganda purges
against the American people then pointing
the finger at inquisitive bloggers for "aiding the enemy," is
alarming to behold.

President George W. Bush looks up as he signs the Military
Commissions Act
of 2006 in the East Room of the White House
in Washington. The bill effectively nullifies nine of the first
ten amendments to the U.S. constitution and ends the
"great experiment" known as The United States of America.


The White House has made it perfectly clear that it will target
American citizens for propagating information harmful to the
interests of the U.S. government and classify them as enemy
combatants. This is codified in sub-section 27 of section 950v.
of the Military Commissions Act of 2006.

Bush's own strategy document for "winning the war on terror"
identifies "conspiracy theorists," meaning anyone who exposes
government corruption and lies about major domestic and world
events, as "terrorists recruiters," and vows to eliminate their
influence in society.

In a speech given Monday, Homeland Security director Michael
identified the web as a "terror training camp," through
which "disaffected people living in the United States" are
developing "radical ideologies and potentially violent skills."

Chertoff has pledged to dispatch Homeland Security agents to
local police departments in order to aid in the apprehension
of domestic terrorists who use the Internet as a political tool.

How long before influential online writers, bloggers and
journalists like Greg Palast, who was charged with aiding
the terrorists when filming "critical U.S. infrastructure,"
are arbitrarily gunned down on the street like in Russia or
the newly "free" Iraq?

The Bush administration's media mouthpieces have also been
mobilized to stereotype any kind of critical thinking as "giving
aid and comfort to the enemy," a recent case in point being
Fox News' Bill O'Reilly calling for the FBI to investigate
the 9/11 Scholars organization for possible ties to terrorist

Will we witness a "night of the long knives" to silence any
and all dissent as the official dictatorship is announced or
does the chilling effect of simply threatening to treat bloggers
and journalists as terrorists go far enough to intimidate enough
people to keep their mouths shut?

A combination of this chilling effect and moves to license
websites, impose "hate speech" restrictions and kill off the
old internet in favor of a government regulated, China-style
"Internet 2"
are the tools in the arsenal of the neo-fascists
who wish to continue their domestic and imperial bloodletting
under the mandated consensus of total obedience.
