Yesterday, September 21, 2006, President Bush sent to Congress an executive declaration entitled “Continuation of the National Emergency With Respect to Persons Who Commit, Threaten To Commit, or Support Terrorism,” which extends for one year the state of national emergency originally declared on September 23, 2001. The President’s declaration states that the reasoning behind the continuation is that “the actions of these persons who commit, threaten to commit, or support terrorism continue to pose an unusual and extraordinary threat to the United States.”
We have been in a state of emergency?!?! For that long?!?! Damn, no one told me!
I thought we were in a state of FEAR under the of Politics of Terror? Hmpf, fancy that.
