EVEN MORE COBURN One last nugget. From a speech given by then Rep. Tom Coburn on anti-terrorism legislation proposed in the wake of the Oklahoma City bombing:
"Terrorism obviously poses a serious threat to us as a free society. It generates fear. But there is a far greater fear that is present, and that is fear of our own government."
