In my entire life I would follow the norm watch adapt and go along with what society does without question. Until one event that shocked my reason and beliefs about the world.September 11-2001 was an infamous day for most Americans but for me it changed my view and thoughts about the world. The media, the government told many explanations about the incident but pieces were misses or hidden. To explain my discovery I must explain the facts in our society and the environments around us. The NSA tracks every phone call, text, email around the globe , it violates our rights of privacy, but people aren 't aware of that so they scurry on unaware. Example Edward Snowden leaked classified Information from the NSA but the media is censored to feed …show more content…
People are too worried about their reality tv show to realize what happening in the world , to take notice of the decision made in our country, The Iraq War was a crime, Howell,Bush,Cheney,and Rumsfeld lied to the United Nations and the rest of the world. Saddam had no WMD’S and had nothing to do with al Qaeda. Bush Administration knew their partners, the Saudi’s financed the 9/11 attacks but because of their oil they took no actions against them. Instead Former President Bush sends our soldiers to die in countries that had nothing to do with domestic terror attacks. A question to think about why didn 't President Obama file charges against Bush government. Bush cost the taxpayers 100 of billions dollars and committed war crimes why is Obama not doing anything about that. The answer is because he is also paid from a member of the “club” or group of the elites. More migrants got deported under Obama than any other president. Why didn’t he close guantanamo bay were prisoners are tortured without proof,evidence or court case for over 10 years. “Obama also did not deter the detainee provisions in the National Defense Authorization Act which allows indefinite detention without a trial including Americans. There is a constitutional crisis in the United States. That act is a violation of international law and a spat to

The world has definitely changed since 2001, but as it’s changed many people are beginning to overlook what happened fourteen years ago, because it’s all in the “past”.

    It seems that the government labels the prisoners as detainees to circumvent laws set forth by the United Nations. These laws say prisoners cannot be kept after a conflict has ended. I was also surprised to learn only ten detainees are actually on trial; therefore, the prison seems to be a waste of American taxpayer’s money because it is simply holding people. I am confused why Congress would like the image the prison sends to the world if that image does not align with American values of justice. In her article, “Let Them Go” the author, Rosa Brooks, suggests the prisoners should be released because they can no longer provide intelligence after ten years of incarceration.…

    A question to ask is why does the Government lie to Americans when a Terrorist attack happens? Why not just tell the truth? One problem with the official 9/11/2001 report is how Saudi Arabians couldn’t leave the United States after the attack. The United States Government wouldn’t let them leave because they had absolutely no trust in Saudi Arabians. Another problem with the 9/11 official report could be the United States military was not informed right away, in fact they didn’t know about the attack till after it happened.…

    “Under observation, we act less free, which means we effectively are less free,” was a statement given by Edward Snowden, who is regarded as both a hero and a traitor. The government loathes Snowden for divulging top secret NSA documents, detailing the government 's surveillance activities, to the public. The government is covertly encroaching the lives of millions in society without their consent. When questioned about their unjustified actions, the only response given is to ensure security. Judging by its ignorant answers, the government does not seem to know what security is.…

    The Obama Administration defended the surveillance program saying “ it 's legal, limited and effective with preventing terrorist acts” (www.cfr.org). The surveillance program is effective with preventing terrorist attacks, but this violates the Fourth Amendment right because they are collecting data from everywhere and everyone around the country. According to the News Team staff of cfr.org people are starting to revolt against these outraeous and unlawful actions. Judge Richard J. Leon said “ surely such a program infringes that degree of privacy, that our founding fathers enshrined in the Fourth Amendment” (www.cfr.org). After, the exposure of the NSA in the mid-2013 American citizens have started to protest against these unlawful actions and development movements to protect their right of…

    The National Surveillance Agency was birthed as a result of alarmist politics. The terrorist attacks of 9/11 inspired a governmental overhaul of its security measures. With the entire world in shock, the United States federal government approached security threats with new governmental programs designed to protect the public. Although the public did not learn about this program until a few years after it was created, this program was the United States’ preemption against terrorists and enemies alike. Several years have gone by since the program was known to the public, and as a result, many individuals and courts have seen the detrimental harms that the NSA has done to the rights of people.…
