WASHINGTON — The Federal Bureau of Investigation used counterterrorism agents to investigate the Occupy Wall Street movement, including its communications and planning, according to newly disclosed agency records.

Well, I don't know but employing counter-terrorism agents for such a possibility sounds like overkill. Also, don't forget the DSAC. They don't have to disclose info to the private sector to make sure there the protests remain peaceful, do they?

If I was the US government, I would also ask the FBI to monitor communication among Occupy promoters.
Just like they monitor everything... that is a potential medium for terrorists or organize...

You don't think the FBI should share threat data with the potential targets of the threat? What should they do with it, then?

We need to stop supporting the left and the right and meet in the middle in peace and unity! These people are trying to create a violent atmosphere! Violence does not solve anything unless it is used to totally eliminate their enemy! The left and right are only about keeping their guy in power! The People can't have power if they are working against their own best interest! So we have communists and socialists with the left working against the banks, corporations and capitalism! Then we have the 1% the banks, Koch brothers and other capitalist trying to get the tea party in and eradicate the social safety net, lower taxes for the rich and raise them for everyone else! What is happening to America? is it any wonder why the Feds are keeping an eye on the OWS movement!

I don't see how the Occupy movement is a terrorist organization. It seems to me that the government conveniently labels anybody who peacefully disagrees with its immoral practices as a terrorist.
