DHS is currently tracking and discriminating against thousands of activists. Foreign companies have actually been hired to spy on Americans throughout Pennsylvania. Janet Napolitano is attempting to push a hundred different nations into a non binding agreement to install body scanners in their airports. As more and more of our civil liberties are tramped upon, what is left of our nation will become a total police state.
It is only going to get worse. Starting November 1st, new rules will be put in place by TSA under operation “Secure Flight.”
The plan will essentially cross check 100% of passengers against terror watchlists. On first glance, a new program to check all passengers for ties to terrorism might seem like a good thing. The problem is, real terrorists have consistently gotten past these checkpoints and some have even been let through by intelligence agents.
On the other hand, activists throughout the United States have been detained and interrogated by thug TSA agents. Terrorists such as the Christmas Day Bomber have made it past security while 6 year old girls have been detained as terrorists.
Recently the San Fransisco Chronicle reported on one of these illegal detentions. This time it was two anti war activists whose names happened to be on the no fly list. Their detainment/harassment eventually caused them to miss their plane.The San Fransisco Chronicle –No-fly blacklist snares political activistsA federal “No Fly” list, intended to keep terrorists from boarding planes, is snaring peace activists at San Francisco International and other U. S. airports, triggering complaints that civil liberties are being trampled.And while several federal agencies acknowledge that they contribute names to the congressionally mandated list, none of them, when contacted by The Chronicle, could or would say which agency is responsible for managing the list.One detainment forced a group of 20 Wisconsin anti-war activists to miss their flight, delaying their trip to meet with congressional representatives by a day. That case and others are raising questions about the criteria federal authorities use to place people on the list — and whether people who exercise their constitutional right to dissent are being lumped together with terrorists.This attack on the Constitution doesn’t stop at your local airport. As Paul Joseph Watson documented in his article, “Feds Radiating Americans At Internal Checkpoints.” authorities in the Atlanta area are using full body mobile scanners in a move that is sure to radiate the public.In late August, Forbes reported on these mobile cancer machines:American Science & Engineering, a company based in Billerica, Massachusetts, has sold U.S. and foreign government agencies more than 500 backscatter x-ray scanners mounted in vans that can be driven past neighboring vehicles to see their contents, Joe Reiss, a vice president of marketing at the company told me in an interview. While the biggest buyer of AS&E’s machines over the last seven years has been the Department of Defense operations in Afghanistan and Iraq, Reiss says law enforcement agencies have also deployed the vans to search for vehicle-based bombs in the U.S. Forbes
