‘We are all outlaws in the eyes of America’

We are all outlaws in the eyes of America. — “We Can Be Together,” Jefferson Airplane

Think about this: they’re willing for anyone who opposed them to die. That’s America? Counterpunch:

New documents obtained from the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security by the Partnership for Civil Justice and released this past week show that the FBI and other intelligence and law enforcement agencies began a campaign of monitoring, spying and disrupting the Occupy Movement at least two months before the first occupation actions began in late September 2011.

As early as August, while acknowledging that the incipient Occupy Movement was “peaceful” in nature, federal, state and local officials from the FBI, the DHS and the many Fusion Centers and Joint Terrorism Task Force centers around the country were meeting with local financial institutions and their private security organizations to plot out a strategy for countering the Occupy Movement’s campaign.

Interestingly, one document obtained by PCJ from the Houston FBI office refers to what appears to have been a plan by some group, the name of which is blacked out in the released document, to determine who the leaders were of the Occupy Movement in Houston, and then to assassinate them with “suppressed” sniper rifles, meaning sniper rifles equipped with silencers.

The chilling document in question reads as follows:

“One identified BLANK as of October planned to engage in sniper attacks against protesters in Houston, Texas if deemed necessary. An identified BLANK had received intelligence that indicated the protesters in New York and Seattle planned similar protests in Houston, Dallas, San Antonio and Austin, Texas. BLANK planned to gather intelligence against the leaders of the protest group and obtain photographs, then formulate a plan to kill the leadership by suppressed sniper rifles.”

The wording does not sound like it’s some crank Tea Party faction they’re talking about — especially the words “deemed necessary” and the reference to “gathering intelligence against the leaders of the protest group.” Fortunately, in any case, no such assassination campaign materialized in Houston or anywhere else during the wave of Occupy actions across the country, but at the same time, there were never any arrests of whatever organization or individuals that the FBI clearly knew to be planning such a terrorist action against the Occupy activists.

  1. Perception and reality.
    David Crowley and his family were all found dead in their home. They all died of gunshot wounds.
    Had Mr. Crowley called his film “Gray State” a work of science fiction, what then?
    Are those in power all paranoid or are we?

  2. I think the phrase, “It’s not paranoia when they admit they’re trying to kill you” is appropriate. Makes you wonder about all those Occupy protesters severely injured during ‘isolated’ incidents of police ‘caught up in the moment.’ I wonder, can they go back to court when police admit they intended to assassinate them? Oh what was I thinking, hah! u-s-a, u-s-a!
