Lieberman: America in even more danger now that Osama is dead


Now that Osama is dead we can repeal the Patriot Act, dismantle the Department of Homeland Security, and cease TSA groping right? WRONG! Joe Lieberman made it quite clear that police state measures will continue. Even claiming that Americans are in even more danger now that Osama is dead.

Americans should be on the alert for possible lone-wolf action to avenge Osama bin Laden’s death, Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.) said on Monday.

The Department of Homeland Security has not increased the threat level, but Lieberman told reporters he believed the agency is operating under an “unofficial high alert” following the Sunday killing of the al Qaeda leader. Department of Homeland Security head Janet Napolitano said in a Monday statement that DHS would not raise the National Terror Advisory System threat level unless there was a “specific and credible” threat of violence.

But Lieberman said at a press conference that he fears a lone actor, perhaps a home-grown terrorist “who has become radicalized,” will attempt an attack within the United States in the coming days or weeks.

“These are the most difficult cases to see and stop,” Lieberman said. “My appeal to the American people is please, be alert. This is a classic ‘If you see something, say something’ moment.”
