The Bush administration often talks about the so called international war on terror when they legitimize spying on American citizens or torturing detainees, who don’t even have the right to legal council. They speak about “homeland security” and safeguards to protect Americans. Somehow we are suppose to feel more secure now with the TSA restrictions limiting us to only 3oz bottles of liquids in our airplane carry-on luggage. And of course, we hear how they rationalize stricter immigration policies that would include building a wall on the Mexican border, making it harder to penetrate the US. So I have to wonder what the rationale is when the administration gave a $300 million contract to a 22 year old with a criminal record to supply weapons in the Middle East.
