National Security: Orwellian Doublespeak for National Hazard.

Frank Church Open Senate Hearings on CIA and the secret poison gun, which can induce heart attacks, cancer, etc.. From the hearings, Congress created limits, in response to the widespread abuse on the monitoring of citizens, which FISA undid.



No Place to Hide (should be a must read/listen for everyone)


In 1968 a reporting apparatus that relied on nothing more than shoe leather and manila folders was created. Agents who normally did security checks, were in addition, given the task of monitoring dissent.  It covered millions of Americans conducting totally law abiding lives.

In 1975 Senator Frank Church headed a congressional commission to investigate widespread abuses by US intelligence and law enforcement agencies. Senator Church warned us about government’s power to turn surveillance technologies on its own citizens if it chose to.

"No American would have any privacy left, such is the capability to monitor everything - telephone conversations, telegrams, it doesn't matter. There would be no place to hide." -- Senator Frank Church in 1975
Well, I wonder what he would say about the power of information and surveillance technologies to watch and assess we, the people, in order to "protect" us.

Protect us?  Take a look at these declassified MK-Ultra project documents, and you will see the most Orwellian doublespeak definition of protection ever created.  We're still reeling from the heinous effects of  MK-Ultra and all of the other CIA operations or projects designed to "protect" us, that are most likely still going on today.
