A lot of people, Democrats and Republicans alike, want to pull out of Iraq and leave the terrorists in full control of the country. With billions of dollars in oil money to finance their activities, they would constitute a real threat to the United States and the rest of the world.

I am wondering if our government officials think that with that threat hanging over the people, they can create a bureaucracy in the name of “homeland security” that would completely control the people of this country.

That may sound radical, but why else would government officials want to pull out of Iraq in defeat?
