I keep getting bombarded with emails from many of the leftist sites I subcribe to..truthout.org, raw story and others. They ALL have stories about which branch of our government is spying on who. Seems every branch as a "secret spy" office..the Army, the FBI, CIA, NSA, the Pentagon..god the list is endless.
This mornings emails have the following stories:
Talon, a supersecret bunch of whackjobs out of the Defense Department is targeting what they consider to be subversive groups like the Truth Project. I quote from the Truthout article here:
"Richard Hersh, of Boca Raton, Fla., director of Truth Project Inc. of Palm Beach County, told an ad hoc panel of House Democrats that his group and others in South Florida have been infiltrated and spied upon despite having no connections to terrorists.
"Agents rummaged through the trash, snooped into e-mails, packed Web sites and listened in on phone conversations," Hersh charged. "We know that address books and activist meeting lists have disappeared."
The Truth Project gained national attention when NBC News reported last month that it was described as a "credible threat" in a database of suspicious activity compiled by the Pentagon's Talon program. The listing cited the group's gathering a year ago at a Quaker meeting house in Lake Worth, Fla., to talk about ways to counter military recruitment at high schools." ---THESE FOLKS ARE NOT TERRORISTS. THEIR ONLY CRIME IS DISAGREEING WITH THE BUSH REGIME. Last time I checked it is NOT illegal to disagree or dissent. Has that changed? Why is OUR government spending OUR tax dollars spying on US simply because we disagree with their mostly illegal and immoral tactics and policies?
The next one that gave me an Excedrin Headache was the one from, again Truthout.org regarding the Pentagons little bunch of fucktards. They got their panties in a wad over 10..count em 10 protesters that showed up at Halliburton with signs and ......I love this part..peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for the workers leaving the office at quitting time. Their point was that Halliburton is making a shit-load of money off the war and yet offering sub-par equipment and goods. According the the protest organizer Scott Parker, its was "street theater". The Pentagon didnt see it this way..a quote from the article: "To U.S. Army analysts at the top-secret Counterintelligence Field Activity (CIFA), the peanut-butter protest was regarded as a potential threat to national security. Created three years ago by the Defense Department, CIFA's role is "force protection" - tracking threats and terrorist plots against military installations and personnel inside the United States. In May 2003, Paul Wolfowitz, then deputy Defense secretary, authorized a fact-gathering operation code-named TALON - short for Threat and Local Observation Notice - that would collect "raw information" about "suspicious incidents." The data would be fed to CIFA to help the Pentagon's "terrorism threat warning process," according to an internal Pentagon memo." How nice..Talon and CIFA work together.
Let me get this straight..the "peanut butter protest" held at Halliburton, a privately owned company was seen as a threat to National Security.ARE THEY NUCKING FUTS? Are they THAT paranoid?
The answer to both questions is an unequivocal YES..sad but true sportsfans. This makes Richard Milhouse Nixon look tame by comparison. The only people I can think of that are MORE paranoid than our Federal Government...crackheads and cocaine addicts. What a nice comparison dont you think?
