Washington Targets OWS


OWS is targeted by federal agents for destruction.

by Stephen Lendman

Last October, Obama told ABC News :

"The most important thing we can do right now is those of us in leadership letting people know that we understand their struggles and we are on their side, and that we want to set up a system in which hard work, responsibility, doing what you're supposed to do, is rewarded."

"And that people who are irresponsible, who are reckless, who don't feel a sense of obligation to their communities and their companies and their workers that those folks aren't rewarded."

His key words were: "we are on their side."

At the same time, FBI, Department of Homeland Security (DHS), and Secret Service agents were working cooperatively with local authorities to infiltrate, disrupt, subvert, and destroy the movement in cities nationwide. 

Celebratory hope accompanied Obama's election. After campaigning on a promise of hope and change, betrayal followed. He expanded the worst Bush policies. He usurped unbridled powers.

In June 2010, ACLU executive director Anthony Romero said Obama "disgusted" him. Civil liberty infringements got worse. Rule of law principles faded.

Last year, Yale Law Professor Jack Balkin said "(w)e are witnessing the bipartisan normalization and legitimization of a national security state."

His administration created a "parallel track of preventative law enforcement that bypasses traditional protections in the Bill of Rights."

In December 2008, before he took office, James Petras called him "the greatest con man in recent history." He compared him to Melville's Confidence Man. "He catches your eye while he picks your pocket." He promises one thing and delivers another consistently on issues mattering most.

A November 2008 Robert Fitch speech to the Harlem Tenants Association revealed much about lay ahead. He said Chicago urban planners yearned to make the city's south side developed like northern areas.
