In 2007 a fuss was raised in the Seattle area about two males, "Middle Eastern-looking," taking photos of the car deck of a Washington ferry. A picture of the two was taken by a ferry employee and turned over to the FBI. The FBI launched a "manhunt." The photo was published in the area newspapers. There never was a "crime."
It turns out these men were from a Euro state and were in Seattle for a computer conference.
"Where these gentlemen live, they don't have vehicle ferries. They were fascinated that a ferry could hold that many cars and wanted to show folks back home," FBI Special Agent Robbie Burroughs stated.
For someone who rides the ferries regularly, photographing the car deck is not the thing, but when it is the one time you will see it, it is normal.
The point of this letter is that terrorists no longer need to attack the U.S. We are destroying ourselves better than they ever could hope to. We are destroying our creditability with the rest of the world.
Trade and the value and use of the dollar in the world are heading down. Homeland Security is doing a great job of destroying freedom at home. The U.S. has turned into a paranoid state.
The "terrorists" gave a shove on 9/11 and from that time on we have been destroying ourselves. After 9/11 there have been no major "terrorists" attacks. Why should there be? Fear is a powerful weapon, and we are using it to destroy ourselves. We are doing a great job -- just look around.
