Smoking Gun: DEA Manuals Show Feds Use NSA Spy Data, Train Cops to Construct False Chains of Evidence

Drug Enforcement Administration training documents released to MuckRock user C.J. Ciaramella show how the agency constructs two chains of evidence to hide surveillance programs from defense teams, prosecutors, and a public wary of domestic intelligence practices.

In training materials, the department even encourages a willful ignorance by field agents to minimize the risk of making intelligence practices public.

The DEA practices mirror a common dilemma among domestic law enforcement agencies: Analysts have access to unprecedented streams of classified information that might prove useful to investigators, but entering classified evidence in court risks disclosing those sensitive surveillance methods to the world, which could either end up halting the program due to public outcry or undermining their usefulness through greater awareness.

An undated slide deck released by the DEA to fleshes out the issue more graphically: When military and intelligence agencies “find Bin Laden's satellite phone and then pin point his location, they don't have to go to a court to get permission to put a missile up his nose." Law enforcement agencies, on the other hand, “must be able to take our information to court and prove to a jury that our bad guy did the bad things we say he did.”


Gotta love the tagline:
Trainers justify parallel construction on national security and PR grounds: "Americans don't like it"

"Parallel Construction" allows cops to "reconstruct" evidence so it complies with the court's needs, yet omits how incriminating evidence was gathered and handled.





"And Americans don't like it!" Can we assume that anyone who DOES like this, is clearly NOT American, at least not anymore!

The text of the training info is available at Muckrock.com - the date of the material is 2007 - I ask everyone to make note of that date before replying - 2007 - This is exactly what the "War on Terror" hoped to dismantle - our constitutional rights.

You know what the problem here is right? There is too much secret info floating around.

The U.S. government classifies almost everything worth any mention, so nothing they do or know or are involved in can ever see the light of day, this is direct conflict with the need of the people to know what their government is doing.

They believe it is more important to hide the things we dont like so we wont know thus wont get angry about it, when in fact the fact we dont like it means they shouldnt be doing it.

How many hundreds of years did the police get by with the same old tried and true methods that were perfectly transparent?

So why now, because we have comps and smart phones do they now need to be able to track us, though this was not ever needed before, and read all our intimate conversations, which was never needed before, all while building a giant database of our behaviors so they can predict our next moves, which was never needed before?

The answer is simple, they dont, they are just lazy, and sleaze bag voyeur nutz that get their jollies spying on the intimate details that are none of their business in others lives.

Wasnt there a constitutional amendment against this kind of thing?....Oh wait there was and is.....So Whiskey Tango Foxtrot America????????????

And it's only accelerated since then.


Look how far it's come, so easy now. How about Google, now you have to every GMail account linked into one to check the mail, etc. And this...
to not be off topic but in comparison to what we are dealing with,



NSA uses Google cookies to find targets for hacking, spying

The US National Security Agency is secretly piggybacking on the tools that enable internet advertisers to track consumers, using cookies and location data to pinpoint targets for government hacking and to bolster surveillance.

Willingly the information they need is given up through social media and e-mail. Unfortunate how the internet, so giving in the search for knowledge at your finger tips, is also a tool for our rights to wither away. We should keep in mind, while you chose to be anonymous on here, at least to those without capabilities to search or motive, you are not anonymous to them. More so, this is not limited to America, the spying. Wait until it is unveiled elsewhere, namely England with the scope of all of this.

I think we can safely assume the NSA can compromise anything and everything. Let's not forget, they've built massive data centers alongside the major ones used by the likes of Google. While it gives them access to all this information, it still leaves the other federal police the problem with how to use it for prosecuting suspects - they need to prove how they obtained that information legally and prove a clear chain of custody. Maybe anti-terror investigators or the military could give a crap about that, those other feds (FBI, DEA, SS, etc.) still have to pay some homage to legality of searches.

That appears to be what this training manual is about, "faking" a chain of evidence, or "re-constructing" it to obfuscate just HOW they got that evidence in the first place (random, warrantless wiretapping, anyone?).

All it took was one rather convenient terror attack to have us shredding our own constitution.
