In a new AP/Ipsos poll, 48 percent of Americans now support Bush's illegal wiretapping and surveillance, up from forty two percent last month. This is due in part to a propaganda campaign played throughout the corporate media preying on people's ignorance of the law and their fears of a terrorist attack. What wasn't divulged was that Bush was spying on antiwar protestors and religious groups such as the Quakers.
Seizing the momentum, Bush used a speech today to tout the stop of a terrorist attack in 2002 that would have operatives fly airplanes in to the US Bank Tower in Los Angeles. The plot was stopped when an alQaeda operative was arrested by a Southeast Asian nation. How any of this actually ties in to the illegal campaign to spy on Americans was not made clear, but Bush invoked September 11 and Osama Bin Laden enough times to create the fear necessary to cloud the judgement of brainwashed Americans across the country.
The Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa of Los Angeles complained that this was the first time he learned of this watching Bush's remarks on TV, but Press Secretary said the White House notified American officials before going public with this story, who were grateful to use the opportunity to exploit this matter for political gain.
