Boo! Bush’s “Fear Factor” goes local

Attytood
Excerpt:

Instilling a sense of fear in the American people isn’t just for Donald Rumsfeld and George W. Bush anymore. The government’s 2006 “fear itself” campaign is now coming to a local newspaper or TV newscast for you, courtesy of the supposed apolitical “pros” of the FBI.

Yesterday, there was an unusual terrorism-related event right here in Philadelphia. That unusual event was a federal agency — the FBI, which usually is about as transparent as a moonless night — voluntarily giving out information to the local media. In fact, they actually invited anyone with a camera or notebook to drop by.

Their message: The big 9/11 anniversary is coming. And don’t ever forget to be afraid, not for one moment:

[J.P.] Weis [the special agent in charge of the Philadelphia division] said he knows of no credible terrorist threat in the Philadelphia area. However, he said, the fifth anniversary of the Sept. 11 terror attacks provides an opportunity for the government and media to remind people about the danger terrorists pose.

“The greatest danger to America today is complacency,” Weis said. “This is a call to arms for every concerned citizen.”

The word “complacency” was the Tell, the sign that the Philly news conference was not an isolated event, but part of a coordinated Bush-driven PR campaign.

H.L.s Take
On September 11, I am going to duck tape up my sliding glass window that leads out to the balcony, and my front door, put on my Hazmat suit, and spend the day hiding under my bed with a shotgun.

    HL who are you trying to kid??? A scatter gun, a pacifist like you wouldn’t know which way to aim it.

    I will put up my american flag and remember how terrible I felt when I saw it on the news. I would hope that it will never happen again. All the experts and think tank folks say it is a matter of when not if. Lets all hope they are wrong.
