Obama's Military Is Spying on US Peace Groups


www.commondreams.org

Anti-war activists in Olympia, Wash., have exposed Army spying and infiltration of their groups, as well as intelligence gathering by the Air Force, the federal Capitol Police and the Coast Guard.

The infiltration appears to be in direct violation of the Posse Comitatus Act preventing U.S. military deployment for domestic law enforcement and may strengthen congressional demands for a full-scale investigation of U.S. intelligence activities, like the Church Committee hearings of the 1970s.

So, the military is now involved in infiltrating "fringe" or "radical" groups. This is disturbing because what we hear about is generally only the tip of the iceberg. Just how big of a role in domestic law enforcement is the military taking these days?

Violations of the Posse Comitatus Act, such as this, can't be allowed: it sets too dangerous a precedent. Next stop, martial law.
