Now that the Cold War is becoming a memory, America's foreign policy establishment has
begun searching for new enemies. . . . Topping the list of potential new global
bogeymen, however, are the Yellow Peril, the alleged threat to American economic
security emanating from East Asia, and the so-called Green Peril (green is the color of
Islam).--Leon T. Hadar, "The
'Green Peril': Creating the Islamic Fundamentalist Threat," cato.org, August 27, 1992

[ . . . in the immediate aftermath of 9/11 the US government undertook the
"preventative detention" of about 5,000 men on the basis of their birthplace
and later sought a further 19,000 "voluntary interviews". Over the next
year, more than 170,000 men from 24 predominantly Muslim countries and North
Korea were fingerprinted and interviewed in a programme of "special
registration". None of these produced a single terrorism conviction.--Gary
