It’s disturbing enough that the FBI and Department of Homeland Security determined to investigated Occupy Wall Street as a “domestic terrorist” group. But the reality is even more absurd than that.
Via Digital Journal:
The Federal Bureau of Investigation knew of a plot to assassinate members of the Occupy Wall Street at protests around the United States but did not inform the potential victims of the threats to their lives.The shocking revelation was buried deep within documents released to the Partnership for Civil Justice Fund (PCJF), a human and civil rights advocacy organization, after the group filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request.
Last week, Digital Journal reported that the documents obtained by PCJF detailed how the FBI cooperated with the Department of Homeland Security, US military and private corporations to monitor and investigate Occupy Wall Street protesters as “domestic terrorists” and “criminals.” The documents prove that federal agencies are “functioning as a de facto intelligence arm of Wall Street and corporate America,” PCJF said.
Seems like the FBI needs a reality check. Who are the domestic terrorists, the banks who blew up the American economy with their absurd shadow banking and derivatives bubbles, whose business models were so fragile and interconnected that they required multiple bailouts just to stay afloat, or the overwhelmingly peaceful protestors who are angry at those banks who through greed and incompetence blew up the economy?
Don’t be on the wrong side of history…
