Can we remember perhaps JFK's most dire warning left to us today, the living, fifty years later, in the midst of the Surveillance State of America?

"....Even today, there is little value in insuring the survival of our nation if our traditions do not survive with it. And there is very grave danger that an announced need for increased security will be seized upon by those anxious to expand its meaning to the very limits of official censorship and concealment…"
{again, emphasizing the last phrase, carefully, because it contains so much relevance even for us, today, if not more so then when he first spoke them}

"And that a very grave danger that an announced need for increased security will be seized those anxious to expand its meaning..."

the Jews Who Knew....

{Israel, our strong ally, elaborate internal U.S. spy network...against....the U.S. }

"Israeli spying against the U.S. is of course hotly denied by both governments. In 2002, responding to my own questions about the "art students", Israeli embassy spokesman Mark Regev issued a blanket denial. "Israel does not spy on the United States", Regev told me. The pronouncements from officialdom are strictly pro forma, as it is no secret that spying by Israel on the United States has been wide-ranging and unabashed. A 1996 General Accounting Office report, for example, found that Israel "conducts the most aggressive espionage operation against the United States of any U.S. ally". More recently, a former intelligence official told the Los Angeles Times in 2004 that "[t]here is a huge, aggressive, ongoing set of Israeli activities directed against the United States". It is also routine that Israeli spying is ignored or downplayed by the U.S. government (the case of convicted spy Jonathan Pollard, sentenced to life in prison in 1986, is a dramatic exception). According to the American Prospect, over the last 20 years at least six sealed indictments have been issued against individuals allegedly spying "on Israel's behalf", but the cases were resolved "through diplomatic and intelligence channels" rather than a public airing in the courts. Career Justice Department and intelligence officials who track Israeli espionage told the Prospect of "long-standing frustration among investigators and prosecutors who feel that cases that could have been made successfully against Israeli spies were never brought to trial, or that the investigations were shut down prematurely".

Medea Benjamin: Pushing Obama's Arc Toward Peace

its time for a true anti war come back to the forefront of this nation

and its not about active war but a sense of stop the militarizing of our nation constantly
with its obsession with over sea adventurism and major defense industry contractors
sucking the billions out of the economic pie....

and then pushing the propaganda machine into every nook and cranny of america
as if war is a our purpose for existing
