FBI knew of assassination plot against Occupy members but gave no warning

By Brett Wilkins | Digital Journal

The Federal Bureau of Investigation knew of a plot to assassinate members of the Occupy Wall Street at protests around the United States but did not inform the potential victims of the threats to their lives.

The shocking revelation was buried deep within documents released to the Partnership for Civil Justice Fund (PCJF), a human and civil rights advocacy organization, after the group filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request.

Last week, Digital Journal reported that the documents obtained by PCJF detailed how the FBI cooperated with the Department of Homeland Security, US military and private corporations to monitor and investigate Occupy Wall Street protesters as "domestic terrorists" and "criminals." The documents prove that federal agencies are "functioning as a de facto intelligence arm of Wall Street and corporate America," PCJF said.

All revolutions start

with a clashing of the (large) under class against "authority", followed by arrests of agitators, and a large police crack down.
I believe that this "information" has been allowed to come out now to bring about unrest.
I also don't trust the leaderless Occupy movement.

Actually, if you understand the issue at stake,

the twist is obvious. OWS protesters had elements of anarcho-socialists who had no respect for private property and truly hated capitalism for "exploitation."

Like during LA blacks riot, Korean residents shot looters to protect their property and their own lives, private owners in NYC must be free to protect what is legally theirs. Ron Paul's newsletter used to provide details on how to conduct such protection.

Blue Republicans are unhappy.


Why Did The FBI Not Warn Occupy Wall St Activist of Assassination Threats

FBI knew of plot to kill OWS activists, remained silent


needs to get there head out of the sand. FBI, CIA, and Homeland security are ALL keeping a watchful eye on their backs. This information does not surprise me. Very reason I am grateful for Ron Paul was to release me from an occupation that became much more violent, more aggressive, and more irrational.

May this thread be a warning to ALL Movements; Pro-Liberty or not.

His name is Edward Snowden

What is Capitalism?

This is so outrageous.

They use our tax money to "protect us" and to gather intel, then do not warn us when we are in danger.
WE HAVE BECOME A CASTE SOCIETY. Some get protected, others do not. Everyone pays to protect the chosen ones.

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.

Although impossible to tell w/the redactions,

it appears to me to be worse than just not warning us when we are in danger.

When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the Universe.
