Default Pentagon Expands Surveillance of U.S. Citizens


Pentagon Expands Surveillance of U.S. Citizens

On: Tue November, 29 2005 @ 00:47 GMT
The Pentagon, through a little known agency called the Counterintelligence Field Activity (CIFA), is expanding its domestic intelligence gathering against U.S. citizens. Using the reasoning that lack of information-sharing between intelligence agencies was one of the reasons the 9/11 attacks were successful, a presidential commission is now urging CIFA expand its surveillance into domestic criminal investigations.
original news source:

The US Defense Department is expanding domestic intelligence collection in ways that could allow it to circumvent barriers to military spying on US citizens, the Washington Post reported Sunday.

Formerly focused on protecting its US bases and military operations, Pentagon intelligence collection inside the United States has already expanded to cover broader terrorist threats to the country, the Post said.

As stated above, CIFA has already been spying in the U.S. post-9/11 for the purpose of trying to thwart terrorist threats to the country. Now this presidential commission is urging that this ever-burgeoning secret agency, which now is reported to have a staff of at least 1,000 people and a black-ops budget, become involved in "a range of domestic crimes" that have formerly fallen under the FBI's umbrella of operations.

Senator Ron Wyden is quoted as saying:
"We are deputizing the military to spy on law-abiding Americans in America. This is a huge leap without even a (congressional) hearing."
