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.
