Finally, something made in America

You talked earlier about anti-American sentiment and a lot of that has been because the United States, while today the press secretary is saying how they’ve been talking about Egypt and then need for reform and bringing this up at every meeting, that’s not the way many Egyptians see it. Most Egyptians see the United States as having stood solidly by President Mubarak while the government here grew more and more corrupt. And they see the Americans as complicit in it. --Richard Engel
Has anyone noticed that we don’t make things in the United States any longer as we used to? Most of our industrial base has been moved off shore to places like China and India. Moves meant to impoverish Americans, break American unions and exploit poor people worldwide. So to discover that there are things still actually made in America is not only surprising but also interesting don’t you think?

What is also interesting is that the U.S. government has found a foreign buyer for our domestic production. By the way, what does this product have to do with the riots in Egypt? (see 1:02min video)

Today for example when we were out on the streets this is what a lot a people were showing us about American involvement. If you can see in my hands this is one of the tear gas canisters and very clearly written in English on it says made in the U.S.A. by Combined Tactical Systems from Jamestown Pennsylvania. And they say this is the kind of support that the United States have been giving to the Egyptian government and bear some responsibility although day it is trying to say that it never backed Mubarak so much as it has been calling for reforms for a long time.

Egyptians don’t see it that way.--Richard Engel

This is not exactly, the “good green jobs” that the Soetoro administration have promised. But tear gas will probably come in handy for the coming U.S. insurrections that the Soetoro Homeland Security administration has been predicting to happen in America since they’ve been in office.

WASHINGTON - Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano responded Wednesday to widespread criticism of a leaked domestic intelligence report warning local law-enforcement agencies to be on guard for right-wing extremist groups seeking new recruits amid the nation's economic troubles.

"Let me be very clear: We monitor the risks of violent extremism taking root here in the United States," Napolitano said in a written statement issued by her department. "We don't have the luxury of focusing our efforts on one group; we must protect the country from terrorism whether foreign or homegrown and regardless of the ideology that motivates its violence.” –Ed O’Keefe (source)

If Egyptian’s claims are true, that the Soetoro administration secretly supports the corrupt Mubarak administration, then the United States is in the manufacturing business once again. Only what we are making is not solar and wind technology. If Egyptian’s charges are true, then America is manufacturing is political uncertainly and corruption for worldwide consumption.

"We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we've set. We've got to have a civilian national security force that's just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded."—president Barry Hussein Soetoro

Finally, something made in America. instead of producing hope and freedom, under the Soetoro administration America is producing police state fascism for home and abroad.
