AMERICA’S SECRET POLICE NETWORK

 

CENSORED IN 1978:

AMERICA’S SECRET POLICE NETWORK

J. Edgar Hoover knew that power lies between the manila covers of a personal dossier and he used that knowledge to build and maintain his empire for almost half a century.

The FBI, the CIA and virtually every other agency given the authority to spy to defend us from foreign or domestic enemies, have sooner or later used their power to threaten our liberties.

In contrast to the CIA and FBI, the Law Enforcement Intelligence Unit (LEIU) is a little known organization; in fact, almost no one has ever heard of it. But its power is considerable and its potential threat to our freedom is enormous.

The LEIU links the intelligence squads of almost every major police force in the United States and Canada. Although its members are sworn police officers who work for state and city governments, it is a private club, not answerable to voters, taxpayers, or elected officials. It cuts across the vertical lines of authority of local government, for its members hold certain allegiances to the LEIU that cannot be countermanded by a mayor, county manager, or even a state governor.

Ex-members of the LEIU admit to illegal wiretapping, breaking and entering, and spying on people to gather information for their files.

REPORTED IN 2010

WIRETAPPING PROGRAM TAKES HIT IN RULING

The Associated Press reported, on April 1, 2010, “In a repudiation of the Bush Administration’s now defunct Terrorist Surveillance Program, a federal judge ruled Wednesday that government investigators illegally wiretapped the phone conversations of an Islamic charity and two American lawyers without a search warrant.

“U.S. District Court Judge Vaughn Walker said the plaintiffs provided enough evidence to show ’they were subjected to warrant-less electronic surveillance’.”

are condemned to repeat it!
