    The point is that he and every other person to occupy the White House understood that the public perception must be managed and massaged.

    The point is that he hired Edward Bernays into the government for the SOLE purpose of managing "public relations", what we call today PR or spin.

    The point is the government officials have a vested interest in managing the public perception and act to achieve that.

    If you deny that simple and obvious point, you are being disingenuous.

    In a much more refined manner, the government today practices just what Wilson did. It's human nature.
    None of that changes the fact that the threat is real.

    WASHINGTON (CBSDC/AP) — The chairman of the House Intelligence Committee warns that America is dealing with “the highest threat level we have ever faced in this country.” Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., told CBS’ “Face the Nation” on Sunday that the threat is coming from the radicalization of young people and foreign fighters heading to Iraq and Syria to join terror groups.

    “They’re very good at communicating through separate avenues where it’s very difficult to track,” Nunes said. “That’s why when you get a young person who is willing to get into these chat rooms, go on the Internet and get radicalized, it’s something we are not only unprepared [for], we are also not used to it in this country.”

    You are incorrect, we are at an elevated threat with the very group Obama allowed to come into existence, and then dismissed as the "jv" team. And they are growing the entire time.

    And the threats continue...

    US Conservative/OP, please report to the DC Naval Yard and discuss this thread topic

    I was at work, but heard it was a false alarm. Probably just DC democrats firing in the air.

    No, I embrace the doctrine of doing what we can to stop what we can, when we can. There is an awful lot of **** we can't do anything about-this isn't one of those things. We aren't talking about tornado's here-this is a threat we can address. If it does not suit your politics, you can pound sand.

    This is the most specific info I have seen on what the threat is-cops, military, public officials all of whom are likely to be in public for the 4th of july weekend. All from the group that Obama said wasn't a threat.

    No, it does not. Facts, are stubborn things.

    Because admitting a threat exists means you are afraid-lefty ridicule with the underlying implication that it should be ignored.

    Im not worried for myself, Im worried for the innocent people who will be needlessly killed.

    They were trying to nationalize their oil while under a leader that was sympathetic to the USSR. That is why they were overthrown.

    It is convenient that he brings this up shortly after the change to NSA spying rules... and specifically calls out activity of individuals getting into "chat rooms" and getting recruited.

    Its a scare tactic to revive the support for their unlawful snooping.. "in the name of safety!!!"

    Actually, the govt revealed that the patriot act did not capture anyone or prevent any attacks.

    Therefore its ineffective and has rightfully sunset-ted (though some certainly remains).

    Obama actually ran against it, then renewed and expanded it.
