Mark Clayton on Homeland Security
For example, before 9-11, the military contractor, Dynacorp, was alleged to be involved in an international child sex and rape ring. Republicans like Graham and Alexander sit up on Capitol Hill playing a fake game of Republican versus Democrat when the real issue is that we have over-funded, unaccountable military contractors raking billions of dollars who have been behind child-rape scandals, the Abu Ghraib torture scandal, and wantonly gunned down civilian non-combatants. Rather than use their constitutional powers to restore order, senators like Graham and Alexander do nothing. And the more things that get blown up and the more people who get killed, the more money just a few contractors make. Meanwhile, American soldiers are on foodstamps.
A: I lobbied on Capitol Hill on anti-terrorism issues, several years before 9-11, and from 1994 have advocated that America either kill or capture Osama bin Ladin.
A: America cannot afford any more debt to the Communist Chinese, nor can we afford, morally or financially, to be a global empire. Furthermore, the "War on Terror" is just a fruitless excuse to take away our rights and cut at our Constitution.
