Naomi Wolfe detailed last year one of the the things I pointed out in some earlier posts this year;(Surveillance Metastasizes, Bush's Loogie and "The Ghost of J. Edgar Hoover". In her blog she tells us the crackdown on Occupy was both more devious and more:
"...more sophisticated than we had imagined: new documents show that the violent crackdown on Occupy last fall – so mystifying at the time – was not just coordinated at the level of the FBI, the Department of Homeland Security, and local police. The crackdown, which involved, as you may recall, violent arrests, group disruption, canister missiles to the skulls of protesters, people held in handcuffs so tight they were injured, people held in bondage till they were forced to wet or soil themselves –was coordinated with the big banks themselves."[emphasis mine]
She goes on to refer to a document from a recent law suit showing just what a threat to civil liberties this is, showing:
...a terrifying network of coordinated DHS, FBI, police, regional fusion center, and private-sector activity so completely merged into one another that the monstrous whole is, in fact, one entity: in some cases, bearing a single name, the Domestic Security Alliance Council. And it reveals this merged entity to have one centrally planned, locally executed mission. The documents, in short, show the cops and DHS working for and with banks to target, arrest, and politically disable peaceful American citizens."
Domestic Security Alliance Council
This council is probably the most dangerous body our country has ever constituted. Anyway, the document was summarized here:

And the FBI document:
So instead of surveilling and cracking down on Financial Fraud, the FBI worked with the Fraudsters to crackdown on folks protesting getting defrauded. Really great.
