Political Dissent is ‘Terrorism’ Now

Posted in America at 12:47 pm by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

William Blum

Summary: It becomes ever more apparent that what those in power really fear is not the public getting hurt but the public seizing power

BEFORE changing the headline, one of Britain’s worst papers, known as the Daily Mail, published an article [1] titled “CIA drone strikes ‘rely heavily on NSA’s data-mining program’” (relate this to the previous post and the one about CIA drone strikes). According to the British press [2], the CIA was “suspicious of Edward Snowden years ago” and William Blum, who had worked in London with an ex-CIA officer (now a famous author and historian), said “[t]here is a drone with Assange’s name on it.” This ought to remind people of who’s the real enemy in the minds of CIA or NSA agents. The population is a real threat to the ambitions of conquest.

Since some time in early 2012 we have covered by mention many article about the NDAA, which includes provisions and actual laws that permit detention without trial (or even corporal punishment, which imprisonment itself can be) of US citizens. Think of internment of Japanese-Americans for an analogy. According to some news [3], there is effective resistance to this [4] and after what seems like publicity stunts by truckers [5,6] and others we seem to be seeing politicians following suit [7-9].

In the age when Nazi helpers like IBM (IBM helped Hitler ‘barcode’ people for assassination) seek to take the CIA contract away from Amazon [10] we are reminded that not much has changed since Japanese-Americans got imprisoned (punished collectively based on race — not political orientation — in order to be imprisoned in bulk). Based on some other news [11], the CIA’s equivalent of prison and punishment camps (like the Nazis’ in early stages of the war, before turning to death camps) may soon face declassification and the European Parliament is finally fuming over the CIA’s camps in Europe [12] (which months ago, as we repeatedly showed, the CIA wanted to shut down along with evidence, in the same country where the Nazis had put most of their camps). Don’t forget where many of the CIA’s first officers came from.

Related/contextual items from the news:

  2. CIA ‘suspicious of Edward Snowden years ago’

    Edward Snowden, the man behind the NSA spying revelations, aroused the suspicions of the CIA four years ago while he was working for the spy agency – but they failed to pass on a warning to the rest of the US government.
