When Good Becomes Evil and Evil Becomes Good: A Review of See Something, Say Nothing, by Philip Haney
How long would a people be content to suffer outrageous violations by their rulers before they do something about it? And if they are so moved to take action, what would they do? Thomas Jefferson pursued that line of reasoning 240 years ago when, in the summer of 1776, he penned these words:
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.
The student of American history will recognize this as part of Jefferson’s reasoning in the Declaration of Independence. That was 240 years ago. What application, if any, does it have to Americans in the 21st century? Such a consideration requires some thought as to how the people should respond to a government that appears no longer to be acting in their best interests.
How do we know the United States Government is not acting in the best interests of the people? That is the testimony of Philip Haney, a recently retired Federal law enforcement officer of Customs and Border Protection (CBP), a division of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). Haney’s memoir, See Something, Say Nothing: A Homeland Security Officer Exposes the Government’s Submission to Jihad, charts the tumultuous ordeal he endured for simply doing his job.
It is always good to see friends do well. I and many others have been waiting for a long time to see our friend Philip Haney publish his story. Phil recently retired from the Department of Homeland Security. His last years in service were anything but rewarding; although a gifted and experienced intelligence analyst, he was prevented from doing his job of protecting America from terrorist threats. His book, See Something, Say Nothing: A Homeland Security Officer Exposes the Government’s Submission to Jihad, explains the official pressure he endured in trying to expose the Islamist influence at all levels of government. The book will be released on May 24, 2016. It is available for preorder on Amazon.com at this link:
