The Committee of Fear

Joe Lieberman and John Kyl

July 20, 2004

Tuesday 10:52 AM

We cannot overstate how dangerous this development is at this moment in the struggle for democracy in America. Joe Lieberman and John Kyl, the epitome of AIPAC and conservative Congressional power, have revived the Committee on the Present Danger. As the foreign threat flipside of McCarthy's House Un-American Activities Committee, the CPD kindled fear and preyed upon the ignorance of everyday Americans to push through aggressive defense spending programs.

Now they are at it again. Unlike last time, when America was in a struggle for survival, this time, America is the imperial power. Our security is determined by how we order the world, and right now our economic and military policies are impoverishing and oppressing billions of people. But if history is any guide, Lieberman and Kyl will argue that the threat comes from people who detest our freedoms. Poppycock.

The reality is, we are attacked and hated because of our unjust policies. This is the present danger. Our economic engine is addicted to oil, members of Congress are addicted to AIPAC and defense industry money, and right now that system is falling apart. If there is a danger, it is to the power base of these cynical elite...
