Federal law enforcement officials say the suspected Fort Hood, Texas, shooter had come to their attention at least six months ago because of Internet postings that discussed suicide bombings and other threats.
So, what today's shooting demonstrates is that all the constant surveillance of our mails and internet postings is totally useless.
I mean, isn't the justification for the destruction of the Bill of Rights, the spying, the reading of our emails and net posts, the eavesdropping of our phone calls, based on the premise that we will be safe from acts of terror?
And doesn't today's shooting prove that none of it works?
Restore the Bill of Rights!
