Ludicrous Diversion

A documentary focussing on the 7/7 bombings in London and the British Big Brother state.

The commenters over at Hot Air
don't like this film, assigning a plausible agenda to its creators.

However, this is what struck me:

"We are constantly told that the terrorists, especially the CIA created Islamic group alQuaida, are attacking our way of life and our freedom.
But these transparently absurd claims are made only by our government, never by the terrorists themselves who consistently cite very different and very specific grievances.
And ironically it is not the terrorists attacking our way of life, but our own government. Through the expansion of police powers and stringent anti-terrorist measures being imposed upon Britain they are using our fear for our safety to restrict our liberty. And they are using their false promises of security to erode our privacy

"The terrorists cannot take away our freedom or change our way of life, only our elected leaders can do that.

And they are."

[emphasis added] (from end of part 1, beginning of part 2)

Somehow nursing mothers, blue haired grannies, Congressional Medal of Honor winners and Ann Coulter are a threat to our National Security requiring further investigation, but young Moslem males cannot be questioned.

...and don't get me started on the "war on drugs"
