Secondly, addition, what books were checked out from

Secondly, there was a bigger surveillance as the US
intelligence state rise in the wake of 9/11. The growth resulted in an increase
in government oversights. This was done through phone and web surveillance. The
department of homeland security started 2 weeks before the 9/11 attack took
place and the act was signed and made as an official on November 25, 2002. More
and more surveillance was put into place and harsher surveillance. Camera were
put up on street corners and government buildings. There was an observation of
everything e.g. phone calls, texts, emails or internet browsing history. In
addition, what books were checked out from the library, which became the
standard way of the government to keep an eye on the public in the “war of
terror”. Anyone who spoke up or disagree with the surveillance by state, they
would be accused of being with the terrorists or would be blamed for not understanding
the risk of terrorism.

Thirdly, the President Bush called for a war on
terror after 9/11. Bush launched a war in Afghanistan to bring justice
associating with Osama bin laden. He was the head of the al-Qaida group that
lead to the 9/11 attacks. For the war, approximately $23.9 billion was the
budget that was given for the war funding to get all the equipment’s and other
essentials that could be used in the war. The president bush sent troops to
Iraq where they found weapons of mass destruction and according to Bush, the
president of Iraq, saddam Hussein, was providing aids and assistance to the
group of al Qaida. Legislature appropriated $36.7 billion for the war on Iraq
in the first year. By the end, the war on terror on both countries added up to
$1.164 due to the increase spending for the defence department and homeland
security. President Obama gave $807 billion and president trump budgeted $156
billion, which in total added up to $2.126 trillion, which was the cost of the
“war on terror”.  Furthermore, in 24 hour
news media and the exaggerating news channel, 
the government became addicted to exaggerating the story of ‘war on
terror’ the same way that it did with the NHS reform, education reform etc.(Rawnsley,
2001; oborne,2006).
