We all know the Obama administration’s rank hypocrisy when it comes to promiscuously snooping on journalists and other American citizens. Why are they casting so wide a net? Here’s a quick theory: Because they are unable ideologically (or emotionally) to focus on militant Islam as a special risk, they are obligated to treat everyone the same, which means they have to spy on all of us.
This makes understandable Janet Napolitano’s comment, ““We want to move away from the politics of fear toward a policy of being prepared for all risks that can occur.” It’s why little old ladies and babies get strip-searched at airports and young men from the Middle East go free. Political correctness has always been a pain. Now it is a huge driver in the loss of our privacy.
We’re all suspects now.
