"The administration has not only the right, but the duty, in my opinion, to pursue Fifth Column movements," Graham, R-S.C., told Gonzales during Senate Judiciary Committee hearings on Feb. 6.Can someone please define a "Fifth Column Movement" to me? Quickly? Me thinks I may belong, at least according to many conservatives.
"I stand by this president's ability, inherent to being commander in chief, to find out about Fifth Column movements, and I don't think you need a warrant to do that," Graham added, volunteering to work with the administration to draft guidelines for how best to neutralize this alleged threat.
"Senator," a smiling Gonzales responded, "the president already said we'd be happy to listen to your ideas."
Plus, there was that curious development in January when the Army Corps of Engineers awarded Halliburton subsidiary Kellogg Brown & Root a $385 million contract to construct detention centers somewhere in the United States, to deal with "an emergency influx of immigrants into the U.S., or to support the rapid development of new programs," KBR said.Ok. So here's the scenario. There's another very large terrorist attack a la 911. The government swings into action, rounding up "everyone" they consider a threat to the national security, including those who have vocally opposed the administration, and anyone who has voiced sympathy for those on the other end of U.S. abuses.
Later, the New York Times reported that "KBR would build the centers for the Homeland Security Department for an unexpected influx of immigrants, to house people in the event of a natural disaster or for new programs that require additional detention space."
I'm a very lucky person with every allergy known to man but still happy to be enjoying a wonderful life living in the best place in the world!
