The Spy Next Door Comes from New York
(The American Conservative) -- by Philip Giraldi --
The recently revealed joint CIA/NYPD operations being run all along the Eastern Seaboard are, of course, completely illegal but are perhaps symptomatic of the past decade’s use of the word “terrorist” to excuse any and all bad behavior by law enforcement and intelligence agencies. The NYPD Intelligence Division and Counter-Terrorism Bureau, which incorporates a “dirty tricks” undercover Special Services Unit and a Terrorist Interdiction Unit that runs informants and maps the city’s “human terrain,” is headed by David Cohen, a former top CIA analyst. Its budget is $62 million per year.
To summarize for those who have not read the lengthy investigative report by Associated Press, the CIA had senior officers posted to New York City who worked directly with the NYPD to establish what amounted to an Agency Station within the police force. They instructed undercover cops, including one who was actually trained at the CIA’s “Farm” facility in Williamsburg Virginia, to recruit sources in the local Muslim communities and to use informants to search for possible terrorism hotspots in book stores, cafes, and mosques. NYPD officers and their own “snitch” sources did the trolling but they were directed by CIA officers and, ignoring normal police and FBI guidelines, did not require probable cause of criminal activity to initiate an operation.
Operations were run not only in New York, but throughout northern New Jersey and as far away as Massachusetts without any liaison with the local authorities or even with the FBI. Reports on every mosque in the New York area were compiled by undercover officers and informants. Liaison offices were established in eleven foreign cities, not unlike CIA stations. Apparently, only Muslims were targeted initially, though antiwar activists were also pursued by the Bureau during the 2004 Republican National Convention. Court documents reveal that one of the questions police asked protesters who were detained was “Do you hate George W. Bush?’
Cohen’s Bureau regularly shreds documents relating to its operations so there will be no paper trail. The FBI has refused to let its New York office even look at the information that is being collected by the NYPD intelligence unit because it considers it illegal. There are perhaps inevitably close ties with the Israelis, who have advised the New Yorkers on how to map the “human terrain” based on how they control the West Bank. A top Cohen deputy, Mordecai Dzikansky, headed the so-called Demographic Unit, which keeps records on ethnic communities. He somewhat ingenuously describes his version of demographics as “It’s not profiling. It’s a question of going where the problem could arise.” Dzikansky also was posted to Israel.
At a minimum, the NYPD intelligence unit is overwhelmingly targeting one religious community and illegally collecting information on American citizens and residents who are innocent of any crime. They are justifying doing so due to suspicion that someone might be contemplating a crime, which criminalizes thoughts rather than deeds and violates the First Amendment. They are violating their own rules for initiating an investigation as well as the guidelines set down by the FBI and are operating far removed from their jurisdiction in New York City under no legal authority. The CIA, for its part, is clearly engaged in and supporting domestic spying. The Bureau and Agency are also collaborating in illegally using CIA resources, as most of the officers in question seconded to New York were paid out of Langley and were presumably able to tap into sensitive Agency data bases.
I am waiting for Eric Holder to say something. Tell me Eric, will you launch a Justice Department investigation or will you ignore the whole matter, “looking forward” as your boss in the White House has so often recommended? If you choose to ignore it, presumably because you are interested in how New York City votes for 2012, it will be just one more chipping away at the liberties that we Americans used to enjoy. But we have become accustomed to that...LINK
Chris Moore comments:
It seems the Obama administration only approves of religious freedom for those who subscribe to particularistic religious veins compatible with the official religion of the Jewish state; everyone else must be harassed, investigated and spied upon by Zionist-run "U.S." federal and state agencies.
Is there any difference between the Jewish Bolsheviks, the Jewish Zionists, the Jewish statist-liberals, the Jewish neocons...etc...and any of their pseudo-secular, left-wing and fascist offshoots? Not really, and here's why: Of common pedigree, the many noxious parallels between Communism and Zionism
Either one believes in freedom of religion (and most authentic Christians are confident that Christianity doesn't need state-backing to prevail as the center of the Western ethos) or one is a Zionist, (the Judaic equivalent of an Islamist) or one of their liberal fascist, neocon or Judeo-Christian Zionist gangster collaborators/useful idiots who needs to utilize the state to stack the odds in the favor of their particular grift, funnel money their own way, and generally put a yoke around the necks of average citizens to maintain their parasitic racket.
And of course, because organized Jewry is doctrinally racist in order, it believes, to preserve its "chosen" racial line, it won't proselytize and hence needs a powerful state (run by Zionist commissars like those Judeofascists listed in the article above) to impose Jewish moral authority and the Zionist ideology upon the country (and humanity) at the point of a gun.
It's clear that these Zionsts, all of them from bolshevik to statist liberal to neocon to Judeo-”Christian,” simply do not believe in freedom of religion, seek out state authority to impose an artificial Judaic moral authority upon the People, and hence are an artificial, alien, unnatural elite that is destined to be overrun by an organic leadership that emerges like a tsunami from the Western geist and flushes the lot of them either into Israel or back down into the gutters and sewers of Western society where they belong.
