L’excellent Greg Palast déballe une série d’incohérences en ce qui a trait à la folie sécuritaire états-unienne dans ce très bon texte:
« According to the press office from the Department of Homeland Security, lowered-threat Yellow means that there were no special inspections of passengers or cargo. Isnâ€™t it nice of Mr. Bush to alert Osama when half our security forces are given the day off? Hmm. I asked an Israeli security expert why his nation doesnâ€™t use these pretty color codes.
He asked me if, when I woke up, I checked the dayâ€™s terror color.
â€œI canâ€™t say I ever have. I mean, who would?â€?
He smiled. â€œThe terrorists.â€?
America is the only nation on the planet that kindly informs bombers, hijackers and berserkers the days on which they wonâ€™t be monitored. Youâ€™ve got to get up pretty early in the morning to get a jump on George Bushâ€™s team. »
