Trying to make himself useful. Father Land Homeland Security Sec. Chertoff (Dual-Citizen) is trying to scare more blue hairs, War Porn lovers, and Republicans (not Conservatives) into believing that “European Terrorists” are trying to enter the US.
WASHINGTON (AP) – European terrorists are trying to enter the United States with European Union passports, and there is no guarantee officials will catch them every time, Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff said Thursday.
“The terrorists are deliberately focusing on people who have legitimate Western European passports, who don’t appear to have records as terrorists,” Chertoff told lawmakers. “I have a good degree of confidence we can catch people coming in. But I have to tell you … there’s no guarantee. And they are working very hard to slip by us.”
Is there a terrorist threat at all? I don’t know. I believed it after 9/11. But I also see that these “experts” and people like Chertoff need to hang on to there jobs. So they tend to cook up some “evidence” and paint it as some kind of huge event is going to happen at any second. And of course, I tend to NOT believe about 90% of what comes out of a Goverment Bureaucrat’s mouth.
Here’s the best part of this article.
Chertoff and other intelligence officials have delivered similar warnings before, and he offered no new information about specific threats or an imminent attack.
You have to go down into the article a little bit to read that part. So you see, what I’m talking about. They need to feel “useful” and to make sure they still have their jobs. Making threats like this only helps them. Not us. And remember, Chertoff is the man who is pushing for the National ID. I will be dammed if I am going to have one of thoughts.
Then towards the end, there’s this little tid bit. Responding to a question from Rep. Al Green, D-Texas, Chertoff dismissed any rumor that he is on a list of potential running mates for Sen. John McCain, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee. Chertoff quipped that the only list he has for next year is a list of vacations.
That right there, scares the crap out of me. Two Authoritarin people running the White House, AGAIN, is not what we need.
