How the Doomsday Project Led to Warrantless Surveillance and Detention after 9/11 by Peter Dale Scott
Everyone knows that warrantless surveillance and detention arose in the wake of 9/11. But few know that the machinery that Dick Cheney and others used to pull it off was born in the Atomic Age. Peter Dale Scott exposes the maneuvers in this excerpt from his new book, “American Deep State.”

WHO

Who ignored over a thousand sex crime-related calls? According to a scathing report, New Orleans police “routinely ignored” rape and child abuse cases. It is hard to ignore new data showing police killings at a two-decade high despite the fact that the U.S. murder rate dropped to a 45-year low. Perhaps body cameras will close that troubling gap.

And who in America’s neighborhood has an even worse police brutality problem?

Who did BP lobby to preserve its partnership with the government after the Deepwater Horizon disaster?

Who ignored their own warnings about oil spills in Nigeria?

Who in the Democratic Party is banking everything on getting the Keystone XL pipeline built?

WHAT

What does the FBI’s newly-unredacted “Suicide Letter” to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. tell us about surveillance?

What is “The Son of Stuxnet” and how did Obama “endanger everyone” by unleashing Stuxnet on Iran?

What’s next for Ebola-stricken Liberia? Famine.

WHY

Why is a new U.S. runway an election issue in Okinawa?

Why does this western nation welcome jihadis?

Why did the CIA “win” the midterm election?

And … how much wealth does America’s top 0.1% control?
