The most amazing thing is she got an interview. If you notice, the NorthCom statement is a lie of omission.
Interview – Naomi Wolf – Give Me Liberty
Interview with Naomi Wolf author of “Give Me Liberty: A Handbook for American Revolutionaries” given October 4, 2008 on Mind Over Matters, KEXP 90.3 FM Seattle.
Dear Conservatives, Will You Help Save the Republic from Military Takeover?
I hope to persuade you of the profound moral repugnance a true conservative should feel for the plans that are afoot in this nation.”

What this means is that U.S. citizens can now be “controlled” by the military on our streets through technologies — such as Tasers and rubber bullets — that terrify and torment and stun but do not usually kill citizens the way that citizens in Iraq are terrified, tormented and stunned by U.S. military forces.
