FBI Asks Stores To Spy On Survival Gear Customers And Report Them As Potential Terrorists
That is the headline from this blog post
There is a link on that page that goes direct to the blog. Which is this link, when you click and past from here does work now, I've tried it.
I don't know much about this chap as I am in UK, but he seems like a sensible chap. He also has a copy of the document from the FBI handed to shops
selling such equipment. Here is some examples from the quite detailed post he made.
" The FBI is asking surplus stores to spy on identities of customers purchasing survival gear and report them as potential terrorists while the CDC
scares the public into purchasing survival gear with ‘Zombie Apocalypse’ psy-op."
Oath Keepers Exclusive: An FBI Denver Joint Terrorism Task Force handoutbeing distributed to Colorado military surplus store owners lists the
purchase of popular preparedness items and firearms accessories as “suspicious” and “potential indicators of terrorist activities,”
instructing store owners to keep records on and report people who purchase:
Weatherproofed ammunition or match containers
Meals Ready to Eat
Night Vision Devices; night flashlights; gas masks
High capacity magazines
Bi-pods or tri-pods for rifles”
The FBI handout, entitled “Communities Against Terrorism: Potential Indicators of Terrorist Activities Related to Military Surplus Stores” also
instructs surplus store owners to:
“Require valid ID from all new customers.
Keep records of purchases.
Talk to customers, ask questions, and
listen to and observe their responses.
Watch for people and actions that are out of place.
Make note of suspicious statements, people, and /or vehicles.
If something seems wrong, notify law enforcement authorities.”
The handout also instructs surplus store owners to consider as “suspicious” anyone who “demands identity ‘privacy’” or anyone who
expresses “extreme religious statements” and those who “make suspicious comments regarding anti-US, [or] radical theology.”
Seems a bit much to me. Also curious as to why Denver? OK, there is lots of info about the expansion of Denver airport with lots of questions being
asked about the murals and underground tunnels etc. Also didn't the CIA announce earlier this year that they are moving their operations to Denver?
I just thought this would be important for you guys 'over the pond' to check out.
