In Orwell's "fictional" masterpiece of 1984 he describes how the operation of the totalitarian State is based upon the interactive dialectic of Big Brother and Emanuel Goldstein. Since "9/11" this general model has been transposed upon the social structure of the western world--no more so than in the USA. In the book, Big Brother, Goldstein and his underground terrorist network are fabrications of the ruling class--the former an icon of "security" and "comfort", and the latter ones of hate and subversion for the slave population. As if to mock the masses and reveal the Orwellian organization of American society our current actor playing the role of Big Brutha is named "Obama", while the Goldstein character is performed by "Osama", thus exposing their interrelated identity and function.
Three suspects arrested in U.S. terrorism probe
Denver (Reuters)--A Colorado man, his father and an accused accomplice in New York were arrested Saturday and charged with lying to federal agents about a plot to blow up unspecified targets in the United States, the U.S. Department of Justice said.
Najibullah Zazi, 24, a native of Afghanistan who works as an airport shuttle bus driver, [at least its nice to know a native of Afghanistan had a job during this recession] was questioned by the FBI for three days, and his father, Mohammed Wali Zazi, 53, were taken into custody at an apartment in the Denver suburb of Aurora.
Also arrested was Ahmad Wais Afzali, 37, a native of Afghanistan who was living in the Queens borough of New York City.
FBI agents who searched Zazi's rented car on September 11 found a laptop computer containing instructions on weapons and explosives at an al Qaeda training facility in Pakistan. In a telephone interview with the Denver Post newspaper on Saturday morning, Zazi said that contrary to media reports he had not admitted any link to al Qaeda or participating in training with the group in Pakistan. "It's not true," Zazi told the newspaper. "I have nothing to hide. It's all media publications reporting whatever they want. They have been reporting all this nonsense."
The questioning of Zazi came days after he traveled to New York City. Early on Monday, a joint anti-terrorism task force carried out a series of raids in an area of the Queens borough...where he had visited over the weekend. The raids rattled some residents as they came days after the anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks.
"The heretic, the enemy of society, will always be there, so that he can be defeated and humiliated over again. The espionage, the betrayals, the arrests, the tortures, the executions, the disappearances will never cease. It will be a world of terror...The more the Party is powerful, the less it will be tolerant; the weaker the opposition the tighter the despotism. Goldstein and his heresies will live forever. Everyday, at every moment, they will be defeated, discredited, ridiculed, spat upon--and yet they will always survive." --1984
