In an interview with the Washington Post, Senator Lindsey Graham held up the Boston bombings as an example of “…why the homeland is the battlefield.” He further stated, “It sure would be nice to have a drone up there [to track the suspect.]”
In 2011, Lindsey Graham, commenting on the National Defense Authorization Act – now signed into law by President Obama – threatened American citizens who would “help Al Qaeda” with death, detention and prosecution. If suspects ask for a lawyer, Graham says they should “shut up.”
The massive demonstration of martial law in Boston has shown the country just how militarized our society has become in the aftermath of 9/11. The scene that unfolded is eerily reminiscent of the 1998 movie The Siegein which martial law is declared in New York after a terrorist attack. At the time of its release, the film’s scenario seemed unbelievable and disturbing. How far will we slide down the slope into total tyranny?
