San Diego, Union-Tribune ^ | 010206 | By Kim Curtis

Posted on 02/01/2006 4:14:32 PM PST by CAWats

SAN FRANCISCO – The American Civil Liberties Union of Northern California on Wednesday filed a request for information about alleged government spying during student-led protests at two universities.

The Freedom of Information Act request was filed with the government on behalf of UC Santa Cruz Students Against the War and Berkeley Stop the War Coalition at the University of California, Berkeley, according to Dorothy Ehrlich, executive director of the ACLU-Northern California.

Documents pertaining to an ongoing investigation are exempted under FOIA. The USG is not required to create documents in order to respond to FOIA requests, either.

For the reason you stated, I hope there is an active investigation.

Since ANSWER, one of the players associated with the "peace movement" has Hamas as a member - take a look at the protests in DC & San Fran - it seems to me that someone should be watching this.

I also wonder how you spy on a protest in public?

"... We're being seen as serious opposition."

No dear, your seen as a threat. Which anti-military protesters such as yourself are. Not only to our national security but also to the moral of our troops. So, pop that cranium on out of that rectum and return to what is commonly known as reality.

This "complaint" by the ususal suspects reminds me entirely too much of the "public lactation" arguments, pro and con.

How many women publically breastfeeding are ending up on some pornie's website? eh?

The argument from ACLU et al, is just too "resemblematic".

Many members of Free Republic oppose George Bush's immigration proposals. What if the FBI kept photogrographs and information on them if they protested against them?

So... you are equating known groups who sympathize, openly, expressly with the terrorists.... to Freepers who disagree with President Bush's Immigration proposals?

riiiight.

And What's on Second.

You posed a hypothetical. Second, in re your "hypothetical", there's no reason at all to not suspect that a private citizen filmed the protest and gave it to the Dept.

Liberals love to see themselves on prime-time.

By KATHERINE SHRADER, Associated Press Writer
22 minutes ago




WASHINGTON - CIA Director Porter Goss said Thursday that the disclosure of President Bush's eavesdropping-without-warrants program and other once-secret projects had undermined U.S. intelligence-gathering abilities.

"The damage has been very severe to our capabilities to carry out our mission," Goss told the Senate Intelligence Committee. He said a federal grand jury should be empaneled to determine "who is leaking this information."

His testimony came after National Intelligence Director John Negroponte, who directs all intelligence activities, strongly defended the program, calling it crucial for protecting the nation against its most menacing threat......."

More from that article:

"I've called in the FBI, the Department of Justice. It is my aim and it is my hope that we will witness a grand jury investigation with reporters present, being asked to reveal who is leaking this information," he said.

Rockefeller suggested that the "leaks" Goss talked about most likely "came from the executive branch" of the government.

That brought a terse response from FBI Director Robert Mueller, who said, "It's not fair to point a finger as to the responsibility of the leak."

ACLU ....the Lead Leftist Hate America outfit spawned by Red Communists.....see this

********************************************

Unholy Alliance : Radical Islam and the American Left

And a very good review:

*********************************

Vastly Illuminating, September 25, 2004

Reviewer: Kat Bakhu (Albuquerque, NM United States) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
I had long wondered why people on the Left had the propensity to speak more positively about people who would slit their throats than they do about their own country, which affords them more freedom and opportunity than anywhere else. David Horowitz has answered that question thoroughly and convincingly in his Unholy Alliance. Where I felt bewildered and confused, I now feel crystal clear. Unholy Alliance is such a great book.

It begins with the leftist movements at the beginning of the 20th Century, and works its way up to the present day, exploring the anti-American attitude of these movements in detail. Horowitz shows that the enemies of the US back then are largely the same group today, operating under the same misperceptions, making the same mistakes, and pursuing the same impossible utopia.

Individual chapters are included on the Patriot Act (I was persuaded that it is a GOOD thing); the democratic flip-flop on Iraq once G.W. Bush implemented what they agreed with Clinton needed to be done; the driving components of the current anti-war movement; as well as chapters on individual personalities who are major spokespeople of the Left. Horowitz covers a lot of ground, and he covers it concisely and clearly. Unholy Alliance is richly informative without ever being boring or plodding.

This book is so illuminating that I simply cannot do justice to it here. I love people who reason so clearly that they help me get my own reasoning clear. Horowitz is just that type of person! In the terrain of mindless clichés (no-blood-for-oil, etc.), he is a breath of real fresh air.
