Lawless Domestic Spying
Big Brother watches virtually everyone in America.
by Stephen Lendman
Years ago, domestic spying was common. Post-9/11, it became institutionalized. Police states do it. So do faux democracies. America is no exception.
In 2007, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) established a new domestic spying operation. It's called the National Applications Office (NOA).
It's described as "the executive agent to facilitate the use of intelligence community technological assets for civil, homeland security and law enforcement purposes within the United States."
It provides sophisticated satellite imagery. Eye in the sky drone spying supplies more.
The FBI, CIA, NSA, and Pentagon spy domestically. So do state and local agencies.
