Stephan Salisbury, author of Mohamed’s Ghosts: An American Story of Love and Fear in the Homeland, discusses his article “Weaponizing the Body Politic;” how the War on Drugs served as dress rehearsal for the current homeland security police state; the tanks and APCs providing “security” for the Republican National Convention in Tampa; how the freedoms of speech and assembly have become quaint notions from a bygone era; a cost-benefit analysis for the War on Terror (around 1 billion spent per terrorist); and the quick learners in government who realized “terrorism” is a magic word that, repeated often enough, makes them powerful and unaccountable.
