I just bumped into this very interesting information.
"Of the 13,288 people killed by terrorist attacks last year, seventeen were private U.S. citizens, or .1 percent."
"Of 978 terrorism-related kidnapping last year, only three hostages were private U.S. citizens, or .3 percent. A private citizen is defined as ‘any U.S. citizen not acting in an official capacity on behalf of the U.S. government.’"
And here's the bit that makes DHS and all the naked scannings seem so insane, "overall, a comparable number of Americans are crushed to death by their televisions or furniture each year."
One has to ask, is DHS really serious? And how dumb are we, to surrender all these Rights in the face of this clear fiasco. They aren't coming to invade America. They aren't hiding in our Walmart stores. They aren't your neighbors. The statistically minute number of freaks who are willing to attack in the name of Jihad are irrelivent and our reactions to the lies and misinformation put out by our government and the media has been wrong. We need to push back against these lies and demand redress by whatever means required that they surrender back to the people the very Rights they have stolen through these terrorist lies.
Amazingly, this information came from an article on the CFR website. Enjoy!
