Chertoff Says US Needs More Totalitarian System

Publication time: 15 August 2006, 11:35

The US\'s chief of homeland security said late Sunday that the US should consider reviewing its laws to allow for more electronic surveillance and detention of what he alleged possible terror suspects.

 

Michael Chertoff, secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, stopped short of calling for immediate changes, but it was clear he was calling for a totalitarian system to cut out whatever little freedom that exists in the supposedly democratic United States of America.

 

The Bush regime has pushed for greater executive authority in its senseless war on what it calls terror, leading it to create a warrantless eavesdropping program, hold suspects for long periods and establish a military tribunal system for detainees that affords defendants fewer rights than traditional courts-martial.

 

Congress is now reviewing some of the programs after lawmakers questioned the legality of the eavesdropping program and the Supreme Court ruled in June that the tribunals defied international law and had not been authorized by Congress.
