Syrian defector says government has lost control of 'human monsters' PS: I'm so sorry, here's the link. http://www.cnn.com/2012/01/05/world/meast/syria-defector/?hpt=hp_c1 Again, Mea Culpa. I got busy. Anyway, I found this chilling. History has born this out more than once. The "security" organization of the Executive Branch starts benign and grows ugly. I don't like it. There's too much potential for the DHS to run wild. They're already showing a penchant for targeting ordinary, harmless political activists. A political solution to the DHS must be found. A heavy price will be paid by all Americans if we allow the DHS to continue to exist.
