Records obtained from the immigration courts under the Freedom of Information Act show that only 0.0015 percent of the total number of cases filed by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security were terrorism related, despite the fact that the Bush administration has repeatedly asserted that it is the primary focus of the DHS.
A report issued Sunday by independent research group The Transactional Records Action Clearinghouse (TRAC) found that in the last three years there have only been 12 charges of terrorism out of 814,073 cases.
This once again highlights that the terrorist threat to America is vastly over hyped and is being used by a criminally controlled government as an excuse to police the world and foment a domestic police state to crush any dissent amongst the American people.
"The DHS claims it is focused on terrorism. Well that's just not true," David Burnham, a TRAC spokesman told CNN. "Either there's no terrorism, or they're terrible at catching them. Either way it's bad for all of us."
DHS spokesman Russ Knocke called the TRAC report "ill-conceived" and said the group "lacked a grasp of the DHS mission."
Knocke said that, by clamping down on all forms of immigration, DHS has made it difficult for terrorists to come to the United States.
Knocke's comments are clearly absurd as there are still millions of illegal immigrants pouring into the country every year and the borders remain wide open, the very reason why there is currently a heated debate over total immigration reform.
Even more revealing was the fact that the TRAC analysis also found that out of those 800,000 or so individuals charged only 114, or 0.014 percent of the total were charged with national security violations.
This re-emphasizes the fact that the Department of Homeland Security is nothing more than a bloated bureaucratic federal Octopus protruding its lawless tentacles into local government and policing. It has nothing to do with protecting America and everything to do with scaring it into total subjugation.
Earlier this month President Bush signed legislation which declares that in the event of a "catastrophic event", the President can take total control over the government and the country, bypassing all other levels of government, including Congress, and thus ensuring total unprecedented dictatorial power. A key part of this legislation places the Secretary of Homeland Security in charge of domestic "security".
When he announced the creation of a new Department of Homeland Security in 2002, President Bush invoked the fight against "terror" or "terrorists" 19 times in a single speech. Thus the word was used seven more times in one speech than there have been actual terrorism charges brought by the department in the last three years.
Should we be surprised that the DHS has nothing to do with terrorism? Quite frankly no, as we have tirelessly exposed the DHS track record of purely targeting innocent US citizens.
Since 9/11 the PATRIOT Act has been used in numerous cases involving American citizens, including strip club owners, toy store proprietors, the homeless, owners of websites, writers, internet users, artists, journalists and photographers.
Maybe in order to find more terrorists the DHS should investigate itself. In 2004 the DHS employed former East German Stasi head, the 'Silver Fox' Markus Wolfe who had previously been denied entry to the US as he was considered a terrorist. In addition, the DHS also hired Ex-head of the Soviet KGB, General Yevgeni Primakov.
What was it about their CVs that attracted the DHS?
Welcome to the new America.
