The FBI is adding more agents, greatly widening its powers, and cozying up with the CIA, under the guise of 're-structuring to fight terrorism' and thus re-introducing the era of Cointelpro. |
Cointelpro was officially curtailed by Congress in the 70's, though many activists and organizations have first hand experience that such practices carried on 'in secret'. Now Cointelpro is officially back and Congress still appears too cowed to ask serious questions regarding potential U.S. Intelligence and the illegitimate Bush administration involvement in the 911 attacks.
Chief Mueller is using the admitted 'intelligence failure' surrounding 911 attacks as the excuse to transform the FBI into a secret police/gestapo which has no restriction on who it can investigate (except of course for the Bin ladins). Any individual or organization can now be investigated and infiltrated without any evidence of criminal activity.
The ACLU has criticized the new FBI powers: "These new guidelines say to the American people that you no longer have to be doing something wrong in order to get that F.B.I. knock at your door," Laura W. Murphy, director of the national office of the A.C.L.U., said. "The government is rewarding failure. It seems when the F.B.I. fails, the response by the (illegitimate and illegal) Bush administration is to give the bureau new powers, as opposed to seriously look at why the intelligence and law enforcement failures occurred."
However it can also be seen as rewarding success. The success of another move towards a militarized police state.
Corporate Globalization and Governmental Police/State Power are two facets of an emerging global fascist state. Bush and his gang have moved very quickly to grab enormous power. The Pentagon has had huge increases in its budget, even though it has 'misplaced' $2.3 Trillion! and which they just happened to announce on Sept 10th. Good thing the attacks happened right then to distract from this amazing announcement. What about civil rights? The amount of legislation potentially stripping people of their rights is overwhelming and hard just to keep track of. For example, the Emergency Health Powers Act which gives sweeping powers to government in case of a medical emergency like a biological attack.

The U.S. public is being manipulated, through fear, into giving up its rights. (Same with Europe) Though the FBI has not come up with a single hard piece of evidence linking its alleged suspects to the planning of the 911 attacks, it continues to issue ominous warnings of further impending attacks. It is a ruse to keep people from asking questions, from looking at what is really quite obvious at this point. The Bush Administration and U.S. Intelligence are in some manner complicit in the 911 attacks which are part of a larger plan which is easy to see in their repressive 'response' to those attacks.
Fortunately many people are beginning to ask questions about 911 and the shell of silence surrounding Bush and the FBI/CIA has shown some cracks. Another FBI agent has come forward and indicated active blocking of investigation by FBI higher ups. Earlier reports, soon after 9.11, by unnamed source in the military, indicated that orders came from the executive branch of the government not to scramble planes on 9.11. What has come out so far, and the questions being asked publically are just the tip of the iceburg.
Though it is a frightening moment in history, there is also an opportunity right now to turn the tables on these people and put them back on their heels. It is a pivotal moment and can become an important victory in the struggle against corporate/fascist domination. Time to Rise Up! Time to Speak Up!
