Executive Emergency Measures.
"ON THE MINDS OF THE PEOPLE"
At What Cost?
Today, the U. S. A.'s "National Counter-Terrorism Center", diligently directed by Admiral Scott Redd, has a single, all-source database of 325,000 names of persons worldwide, who have known or suspected links to terrorism.
With U.S. Intelligence on the mend since 911, working to make the terrorist identity databases compatible for the Agencies, in December of 2005, the news of a generally-kept-quiet program was leaked to the public, of electronic spying at home and abroad by the "National Security Agency", authorized by the president with approved legal counsel for the "war on terrorism", and with briefings to members of Congress; which since, has brought on a lot of media attention, partisan wrangling, and public speculation.
America has a history of earlier emergency executive or legislative examples that were implemented:
When the French threatened U.S. naval sovereignty, John Adams supported the "Alien and Seditions Act" which punished anti-government speech as traitorous.
Abraham Lincoln during the "Civil War", suspended the "writ of habeas corpus", which had given citizens held in custody the right to challenge their detention; Americans were subject to martial law.
Woodrow Wilson allowed the prosecution of persons who criticized the war effort.
During World War II, Franklin D. Roosevelt responded to war-hysteria and ordered the internment of Japanese Americans.
Lyndon Johnson ordered the FBI to perform domestic surveillance and wiretapping, even members of Congress, during the Vietnam War.
During the Vietnam War, Richard Nixon expanded the bugging and wiretapping of domestic subversives; and resigned after the "Watergate" break-in scandal.
"ON THE MINDS OF THE PEOPLE"
These measures seem to fly-in-the-face of what the American people presently expect of their government in their rights as citizens; yet we can all appreciate the necessity for our constantly threatened homeland security, to track suspected terrorists and their associates.
There's a lot of hullabaloo about the NSA wiretap program; but we've yet to hear enough about the important underlying issue that is on the questioning minds of many Americans. Are any who have the opportunity in the U.S. government, listening in and in surveillance of any besides suspected anti-American terrorist affiliates?
Through all of the speculation, many Americans are wondering just how limited or how invasive this wiretap-monitoring program really is; and if their "rights to privacy" are being violated.
When the wiretapping issue was "leaked", it naturally raised that speculation among the citizenry, and has become a lingering cause of uneasiness that reflects in all the polls, which are indicating how all governmental branches on both sides of the aisle are increasingly losing basic approval and trust in government to protect their individual rights, and to uphold the laws on their behalf.
Interestingly and troubling, there's been some who witness to the possibility, even the probability that this abuse of power is being perpetrated, unknowingly on some Americans; stalked, with their rights violated and their privacy invaded for someone's agenda, prying that may not even be related to a suspected anti-American matter; and if that is the case, then there is the breaking of law and a very destructive and disappointing travesty in abuse of power that violates the nation's highly valuable, proclaimed, personal rights and freedoms of its citizens.
If the monitoring could be proven to be corrupt, what should be the result? What restitution should be made for the violation of an innocent individual's rights to privacy?
What would be lost; and what cost to an individual, and to a nation that prides itself on protected and lawful privacy, liberty and personal freedom for its citizens?
These ponderings and suspicions are on the minds of many, in an unhealthy scenario that now exposed, won't just go away on its own. A thorough investigation made public into airing the matter, for bringing to light the truth so that the public, hopefully can rest assured that there is a protective process really going on, on their behalf, would thereby greatly help to restore the American people's sorely needed confidence and trust in their elected officials.
