CIA operatives may have infiltrated OWS protests
December 27, 2011
We have all witnessed the massive police crackdown on the Occupy Wall Street Movement whether it be in Oakland, San Fransisco, or New York City.
Many have wondered who was behind these seemingly coordinated, militarized police crackdowns and what motive they would have in stifling the free speech of American citizens.
While was the more obvious culprit,(and still is) it seems that the CIA may have played a larger part than previously known.
The CIA’s connection to the NYPD has already been heavily documented which adds even more credence to the possibility that they illegally infiltrated a domestic political movement.
The Partnership for Civil Justice recently filed multiple Freedom of Information requests after seeing the massive style crackdown on the protests.
The answer they received from the Central Intelligence Agency made their position startling clear:
“They wrote back saying that they would refuse to process the request basically on the grounds that if the CIA had any involvement it would have been illegal for it to have involvement and therefore their record system is not constructed in a way that they could possibly search for their involvement,” said Mara Verheyden-Hilliard, executive director of PFCJ.
Mara went on to note that they could have easily written back a different request, even one that stated that they did not have any records yet they chose to essentially say that they cannot tell the public if there are records because if there were they would be illegal.
The idea that Federal agencies were NOT involved in the clearly coordinated attack on OWS is absurd and the people of America must support legal action against any government agency refusing to turn over their records on the brutal crackdown of a largely peaceful protest movement.
