We’ve been told that 9/11 changed everything.
Is it true?
Let’s look at the facts:
After 9/11 the government drew up the Patriot Act within 20 days and it was passed.
The Patriot Act is huge and I remember someone asking a Justice Department official how did they write such a large statute so quickly, and of course the answer was that it has been sitting in the drawers of the Justice Department for the last 20 years waiting for the event where they would pull it out.
(4:30 into this video).
9/11 didn’t change anything. It was simply an excuse to implement existing plans.
