This whole swine flu scenario is a little easier to understand than the flyover. At least you can see what they’re hoping to accomplish. If the media-created “epidemic” turns out to be a tempest in a teapot, they can say, “See? Our quick reaction averted this disaster. Government needs to have more power over health care.” If the swine flu really would turn into a problem, however, it can still be used, simply by saying, “If only we had national health care, we could have been on the job faster and this all could have been stopped.” So our government is just seeing an opportunity to further their agenda and jumping on it. Very understandable.
That photo-op that scared New Yorkers to death, however? Does anyone see the point in that? I don’t believe for a minute that it was a mistake. It’s been made public that the Pentagon knew that it might cause “public concern” and yet they insisted on secrecy. Why? Why not tell the media, let people take the kids out and see it, take pictures? Knowing that it would probably panic people and yet not giving a heads-up is nothing short of malicious. What was their intent? Any ideas?
