The High Price of Security Theater The $4 trillion war on terror: Where did the money go?

 People in the US have been 100 times more likely to be shot by police than killed by Muslim terrorists since 2002. Four trillion dollars in spending has spawned endless boondoggles, entrapment schemes, bizarre levels of surveillance, and pointless wars that left vast numbers of Americans & foreigners dead. There is no evidence that the vast increase in political power and bureaucratic intrusions made us safer.
