- "I believe we are entering a period this summer of increased risk," Chertoff told the Chicago Tribune's editorial board in an unusually blunt and frank assessment of America's terror threat level. New York, July 11: A small al-Qaeda cell is either on its way to the United States or may already be in the country to commit terrorist acts, senior American intelligence officials have said.

- Paul Craig Roberts, former Assistant Secretary of the Treasury: "Whether authentic or orchestrated, an attack will activate Bush's new executive orders [NSPD-51], which create a dictatorial police state in event of national emergency.": 9/11 Truthers Ignore Tragedy of First Responders (CanadaFreePress.com); VDare.com; OpedNews - What More can we each to to stop fascim?; it's interesting that we found ne news link on this at the BBC.co.uk, but guess what? We were astonished to see them defending their position on reporting the fall of the 9/11 WTC3 building which came down hours after it was reported to have fallen already by BBC - noted evidence that they had inside knowledge of its imminent destruction - and it seems the majority of the British public don't buy it at all. We were fascinated with the disgust that British citizens showed towards BBC; read here.
The fear apparently assumes that 2 out of 3 Americans believe that the Bush government were responsible for the 9/11 tragedy and that another like tragedy is the instrument to put inot place the NSPD-51 - "NSPD-51, the presidential order, announced in May, by which Bush can declare himself dictator in the event of a natural catastrophe like Katrina -- or a terror attack like 9/11-2B."
Wait a minute? Why is it called NSPD-51; what is it that Americans have with the number '51'? Area 51, ... 51st State (of the US), didn't Bush beat Kerry 51% majority? Formula 51.
There are Americans out there who insist that the US already has 51 states - the 51st being Hawaii; the US has recognised 51 Major Trading Areas (MTAs) with the M51 state being American Samoa. See the MTA map here.
An internet search brought up a text which mentioned Hawaii as being the 49th state and therefore already taken into account - the text was part of a PDF for the play, the 51st (dream) state written by Sekou Sundiata.
