Yes the US government is paranoid, but they have to be. The United States is a large country and it is very hard to protect it. If you are not paranoid when trying to run the government then you are going to find the enemy has snuck up on you.
The U.S. government must take every necessary precaution in
order to ensure the safety of all of it’s citizens. Some would say that the members of the U.S.
government are paranoid. I believe that
the attacks of Pearl Harbor and 9/11 show that we can never get too
relaxed. Being paranoid is necessary to
prevent another attack.
