Fear and Ignorance in the Washington Post

In The Washington Post, Eugene Robinson writes:
Once upon a time we had a great wartime president who told Americans they had nothing to fear but fear itself. Now we have George W. Bush, who uses fear as a tool of executive power and as a political weapon against his opponents.
Over at Observant Observations, I explain the astounding ignorance of this statement and highlight some of FDR's wartime policies of fear, starting with internment.
