Sears Tower and the fake war on terror. From where I am, I can see the Sears Tower at the same time I am hearing and seeing reports of the so-called
Sears Tower terror plot. And I don't believe a word of it.

sears Five years after 9/11 is too late for counterfeit displays of concern. In the years immediately following the destruction of New York's World Trade Center, Chicago's Mayor Daley repeatedly requested that the Federal Aviation Administration impose a no-fly zone in downtown Chicago, now abruptly the home of the United States' tallest building, but this simple and logical (and cost-free) protection was denied. Instead, obscene amounts of money were spent protecting Mount Rushmore. Three million people live here. No million people live at Mount Rushmore. As I said back then, in George W Bush's America, human beings are expendable. Presidential images are not.

The dubious Sears Tower plot was supposedly foiled by a secret program of financial transaction tracking (WSJ) — emphasis on the word "secret." In other words, the whole story was planted in the media as a head fake to make American citizens welcome more intrusion into their privacy and to forget the secret NSA intelligence surveillance of their phone records in collusion with telecom companies like AT&T.

Obviously, your banking and other financial records are next up for scrutiny.
