Tired of being left in the dark

September 25, 2013 

Now we see the President Obama-supported news media (ABC, CBS, NBC and CNN) trying desperately once again to manipulate the American people about Syria.

This brings to mind a statement by U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein, who recently said in public that we, the people, did not know what she knew about U.S. intelligence.

The only thing that I agree with Feinstein on is that yes, there is a lot that the American people don't know. We, the people, are kept in the dark about a lot of things that our U.S. government does in secrecy, all in the name of national security. Yeah, right.
