1.  “Model Plane Enthusiast Netted in Manufactured ‘Terror’ Plot

A few hand-waving exercises and model airplane becomes “drone” and selling some cell phones to undercover FBI agents becomes “selling electric switches for improvised explosive devices intended to kill US soldiers.”

A model airplane and “no information to indicate he was connected to a foreign terrorist organization” might not be much, but it translates into officials being positive that he was going to launch drone attacks against the Pentagon and the Capitol building.”

2.  “CIA Documents: US Drastically Overestimated Soviet Capabilities

Politicians hyped an inflated threat from the Soviets, just as they do with today’s enemies”

3.  “The Illusion of the American Dream

“It’s called the American Dream because you have to be asleep to believe it.” George Carlin
