Looks like the Feds WANT this to happen, some say that they've been trying to make it happen for decades but that the average American is just too fat and lazy to care, no motivation. Maybe this will wake a few people up to just exactly the kind of things these agencies focus on. LOL

FBI searches Midwest homes

MINNEAPOLIS (Reuters) – FBI agents searched eight homes in Chicago and Minnesota on Friday as part of an investigation the law enforcement agency said related to "the material support of terrorism."

Targets of the searches accused the government of harassing anti-war protesters.

The investigation "concerns material support of terrorism but there is no imminent threat to the (U.S.) community," FBI spokesman Steve Warfield said.

No arrests were made related to the raids, FBI spokesmen in Minneapolis and Chicago said.

"We are interviewing people in other places in the country," Warfield added, without specifying where.

The FBI did not release the names of the targets and said the search warrants were under seal.

Minneapolis peace activist Mick Kelly's apartment was searched, and agents confiscated computer hard drives, his cell phone, writings, and his passport, Kelly and his lawyer said.

"It's harassment at the highest level of those of us who have spoken out and tried to build an anti-war movement," said Kelly, who helped lead marches during the 2008 Republican party convention in Minneapolis.

"It's an attempt to trample on our right to speak out against U.S. intervention abroad. It's outrageous on every level," he said.

"They were looking for information about folks who had traveled to Latin America or the Middle East. I've traveled in Lebanon."

Kelly's lawyer Ted Dooley said the vaguely-worded warrant sought information on anyone Kelly knew, and mentioned Lebanon-based Hezbollah and the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC), both of which have been designated terrorist groups by the U.S. government.Kelly said he has traveled to both Lebanon and Colombia "in solidarity with people who are being oppressed."

FBI cites terror link in raids of local activists

Agents raided the Minneapolis homes of five antiwar activists, seizing computers and documents.

The FBI raided the Minneapolis homes of five antiwar activists, including three leaders of the Twin Cities peace movement, Friday morning as part of what it called a probe of "activities concerning the material support of terrorism."

The Minneapolis office of an antiwar organization was also raided, protest leaders said. No one was arrested in any of the raids.

FBI spokesman Steve Warfield said the searches were conducted at about 7 a.m. Lawyers said the agents seized computers, cell phones and documents in the protesters' homes.

The federal search warrants in Minneapolis were related to an ongoing Joint Terrorism Task Force, Warfield said. He offered no details.

Pretty sad when you have a billion dollar budget an unlimited manpower and the best you can do is the above ( ALL OF THE ABOVE ) Talk about embarrassing, not the action, the lack of action by the many millions of people who have a problem with the above. Sad to be so freaking scared of ones shadow. Wonder what the threats will end up being, one can only imagine.

For me I say!

AS much as I hate police abuse of power & of persons,

When they get a warrants it generally means they are acting like bloodhounds on a real scent. They are generally following real leads. If its just harassment it would not be so multi state as it is in this case. More than likely they are tracking down a splinter group that could prove to be very dangerous. Like I said elsewhere we have to keep an eye out for possible domestic terrorists at all times because they can cause the most damage.

I have a limited learning of LE in general, and those are mostly intelligence issues in regard to the same. However, hard to believe no one got popped, except for the computers Laugh Laugh

Further it's rare that an agency such as the FBI would do anything in this regard without orders to do so from above. They call it sending a message, it's why there were no arrests, So maybe this isn't/ wasn't a mere coincidence---which would go far toward explanation of the intended message.

FARC rebel commander killed in Colombian jungle camp attack after agents fitted his boot with GPS tracking device

The jungle raid which resulted in the death of Colombian FARC leader Mono Jojoy was accomplished after agents fitted his boot with a GPS tracking device.

Jojoy, who was known as ‘Colombia’s bin Laden’, suffered from diabetes, which combined with the rigours of living in the jungle had resulted in injuries to his feet.

It was for this reason he was forced to order a special pair of boots – in a message which was intercepted by Colombian intelligence.

The President just so happened to be in the US at the time of the deed, that ain't no mistake! So can, or would or is it possible, that any terrorists type activity, or members, either real or imagined, would have had to sit up and take notice of such activity. Laugh Laugh Surely you can see this from a mile off!

The jogger and the security. Silly boys! 🙄 Not sure it's a real photo, unless of course that NOO YAWK Jogger just decide to blow right through the detail, only he seems a bit small for such a thought! 🙄 🙄 🙄

And of course he has to ( almost immediately ) go before the cameras and do the usual " CHEST THUMPING WAR DANCE " I love it! 😉 The old GPS in the boot trick! Laugh Laugh Laugh

And to think people are dumb enough to BELIEVE they can't actually track the Ghost!!! P_L_E_A_S_E ALREADY enough!

On the photo: Hard to say if that's actually Santos or not. Given that NYC has a Hispanic population roughly equal to half of Kentucky's total (all races), I think you could probably find a half dozen or so lookalikes. Nice Mark of Zorro on the center figure's shirt. 😉

On the story: Interesting, doesn't necessarily correlate to the bin Laden thing. I almost feel sorry for the schmoe, getting tracked & killed that way. Nano-transcievers in his insulin would have been way cool. Convincing Mr. Jojoy that insulin is supposed to sparkle may have been a challenge...

On bin Laden: Find his shoemaker, we'll get a tracking device installed. You want left shoe, or right? Arch, heel, or toe? 😀

Hundreds protest FBI raids on anti-war activists

MINNEAPOLIS — Protesters gathered outside FBI offices in Minneapolis and Chicago, bearing signs and shouting chants condemning the agency's searches of anti-war activists in both cities.

About 150 people protested in Minneapolis on Monday, holding signs reading: "Stop FBI harassment. Opposing war is not a crime." Roughly 120 people marched in Chicago.

Search warrants had indicated investigators were looking for connections between the anti-war activists and radical groups in Colombia and the Middle East.

Many of those searched tell The Associated Press they've had ties to activist groups and have traveled in the Middle East or Colombia. All denied contributing any money to terrorist groups.

A leader of the Minnesota Anti-War Committee, Jess Sundin, says at least 13 people have been subpoenaed to appear before a federal grand jury in Chicago.

How very very sad. Anybody with a brain can see this and sadly only a few hundred have the guts to display their feelings in public.

They count on this sort of thing: Being dragged off before a grad Jury: Pure intimidation.

I'll follow this one very closely.
