Secrecy permits abuse, and today, the massive secrecy in intel operations in the US, accelerated by Homeland Security/Fusion Centers, permits massive abuse on a massive scale, including COINTELPRO operations, slander and defamation operations, directed-energy weapons (DEWs) testing/training operations, community harassment and persecution operations–under covers such as Community Policing, Neighborhood Watch, and Crime Prevention, employment sabotage operations, and human subject experimentation operations, on activists and ethical, active community members, with the collusion of various branches of the Dept. of Defense and the unethical involvement of many, many Universities and medical research institutions, all under the cover and front of state secrets privileges, secrecy laws, and “national security”–this is how a domestic war is being waged on American activists, in communities all over the United States, by the Intel agencies working on behalf of the central bankers and corporations running the country–while Congress and State and local governments sit back and let it happen.
The tragedy is that everyday Americans are being roped into community harassment activities by Intel agencies setting up illegitimate “criminal” and “intelligence” investigations on non-violent activists and lying about the culpability of activists in any number of made-up “terrorism” and crime scenarios. The uninformed citizen is coerced into becoming a “citizen activist” or “intelligence partner” or “community activist”–permitting herself or himself to be used openly as a minion-spy for Intel; why do people fall for this? Because the FBI, the NSA, and Homeland Security convinces them they are acting in the interests of “national security,” and, as the Nazis and the KGB accomplished, they believe this is their lawful government they are serving, and that they have no choice. In this way, the mercenary Intel agency arms of the banking cartel strive for community legitimacy.
The articles below throw some light on what is going on. This site hopes to continue to list more articles and sites on these subjects, under Human Rights, in due time.
“The Homeland Security Industrial Complex operates differently than the traditional Military Industrial Complex. Instead of spending on ships, airplanes and other big weapons systems, much of the money goes to secretive intelligence contractors who perform secret counterterrorism work for the CIA, the FBI, the Pentagon and other agencies. Because it is all classified, there is no public debate about the massive amounts of money being poured into these contractors.”– James Risen, The Post-9/11 Homeland Security Industrial Complex Profiteers and Endless War, article today on Truthout.
“The National Intelligence Program received a total appropriation of $50.5 billion in fiscal year 2014, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence disclosed yesterday, as required by law. The Military Intelligence Program was funded at $17.4 billion in FY 2014, the Department of Defense said. Current and past intelligence budget disclosures can be found here.”–Steven Aftergood, 2014 Intelligence Budget Figures Released, article on Secrecy News.
