“When a population becomes distracted by trivia, when cultural life is redefined as a perpetual round of entertainments, when serious public conversation becomes a form of baby-talk, when, in short, a people become an audience and their public business a vaudeville act, then a nation finds itself at risk; a culture-death is a clear possibility.” — Professor Neil Postman, Amusing Ourselves to Death: Discourse in the Age of Show BusinessRead more . . .
Defenders of the recently passed National Defense Authorization Act, which declares the entire world to be a “battlefield” against terrorism and authorizes the U.S. military to detain indefinitely anyone suspected of being a terrorism supporter, have claimed that the White House will only use its new power carefully and with due process. Opponents note that the White House has never hesitated to use any new authority, no matter how outrageous, and that the trend of law enforcement and security agencies is to expand on powers granted, not to rein them in or limit them.Read more . . .

In the report below, HRW states:
"Haste, incompetence and prejudice played a role in these detentions," said Anjana Malhotra, the report’s author and Aryeh Neier fellow at Human Rights Watch and the American Civil Liberties Union.
HRW’s above conclusion is highly subjective and attempts to deflect the real reason for these detentions which, according to the Webmaster, had nothing to do with haste, incompetence and prejudice. Their detentions appear to be part of a deliberate policy by the US authorities to maintain the myth that the security of Americans is threatened by Muslim terrorism. It suffices to note the lack of any evidence to support these detentions, the refusal to let the defendants and the press see the evidence, the failure of the US authorities to convict any of these people of terrorist acts or complicity, the silence surrounding the release of these people and the absence of victims of Muslim terrorism in the U.S. to question HRW’s conclusions.
