Homeland has it all

So, the "Key Judgments" of the public domain version of the recent National Intelligence Estimate on terrorist threats to the US, which takes up all of two pages, uses the word "Homeland" 11 times--4 times in the first 3 sentences--capitalized. Is it just me, or is this not just fucking creepy?

(Via some Wired link I'm too lazy to look up again right now.)

One and all for the Vaterland! I mean, Hausland.

You see, everything sounds fascist when you say it in stentorian tones in German.

I think it sounds creepy even in an American accent. Hell, even in one of them Fargo accents.
