W Bush Adm. put in place infrastructure of current suspicion

There exists an explosive hot-button issue that U.S. government officials don’t want revealed to the American public; namely, that internment camps have been established—and are at the ready to detain citizens if mass insurrections occur. Under FEMA’s National Level Exercise 2009 (NLE 09), potential trigger events could be economic collapse, widespread bank closures, massive social unrest (possibly due to proof that Barack Obama is not natural-born), or a flu pandemic.
This final item led Rep. Paul Broun (R-Ga.) to declare on August 11 that the government “might use a pandemic disease or national disaster as an excuse to declare martial law.”
Renowned researcher Michel Chossudovsky addressed the mechanics of this subject in a March 19 article entitled,Preparing for Civil Unrest in America: Legislation to Establish Internment Camps on U.S. Military Bases:
“How will the U.S. government face an impending social catastrophe? The chosen avenue, inherited from the outgoing Bush administration, is the reinforcement of the Homeland Security apparatus and the militarization of civilian state institutions.”
Are Army bases actually being converted into detainment camps? In his September 2008 newsletter, Rep. Ron Paul (R-Tex.) pulled no punches. “Even though we know that detention facilities are already in place, [the government] now wants to legalize the construction of FEMA camps on military installations using the ever-popular excuse that the facilities are for the purposes of a national emergency.. . similar to the policies of George W. Bush, Obama vowed to “reshape the standards that apply to our rule of law” (i.e., prolonged military detention and the denial of habeas corpus).
And the alarm is being sounded on those who might be considered dissedents :
. . . to argue that their sole focus is simply on illegal immigrants doesn’t hold water because the U.S. has had an open-border policy for at least three decades. On the other hand, more likely targets for detainment would be anti-New World Order proponents, Second Amendment advocates, dissidents, people who refuse to participate in forced inoculation programs, Christians, tax protesters and those deemed “extremists” and “enemies of the state” under a recent Department of Homeland Security report on “homegrown right-wing terrorists.”
To show their seriousness in pushing this agenda, Bob Unruh revealed a disturbing development on August 7 for World Net Daily: “An ad campaign featured on a U.S. Army website seeking those who would be interested in being an ‘internment/resettlement’ specialist is raising alarms across the country.”
What specifically would this position entail? The description is clear: “Internment/Resettlement (I/R) specialists in the Army are primarily responsible for day-to-day operations in a military confinement/correctional facility or detention/internment facility.”
How similar in tone, sensibilities, is all of this to talk from the left a few years ago! Througout 2003, on through the election of '04, and up until the primaries of '08, these same suspicions and fears were being voiced from liberal quarters about the W Bush Administration. None of them materialized, and it is ironic now that all has been set up to make the new dissenters fear Obama. Can there be truth in any of these sinister suspicions? Have we reached a juncture in which one side will truly overtake the other? Or have we achieved a new equilibrium of paranoia on both sides? Even in the aftermath of 9/11, no advantage was taken of the side outside of power. Surely this is ungrounded suspicion. . .
