Is the Pentagon spying on Americans?

Secret database obtained by NBC News tracks ‘suspicious’ domestic groups

I publish Polizeros and I’m active in the ANSWER Coalition, thus it’s not bravado or paranoia to assume someone might be making a list and checking it twice about me.

Besides, after all my hard work and dedication, they BETTER be watching me. Oh, 60’s anti-war activists who did a FOIA request decades later were uniformly appalled at how much they’d been monitored, what a waste of money and time for a war that most everyone now says was pointless. 

Update: Lefti notes in the comments that the article says

One "incident" included in the database is a large anti-war protest at Hollywood and Vine in Los Angeles last March that included effigies of President Bush and anti-war protest banners.

That protest was organized by ANSWER LA, and I drove the truck that led the march. It is only known to the twisted little brains of the Pentagon why they felt the need to monitor a completely legal protest against their insane war. But such types generally are clueless, seeing Hideous Conspiracies where none exist, then not being able to comprehend that if you invade a country the populace will fight back. Like I said, clueless. Well, clueless and nasty. Apparently they believe the Constitution they are sworn to uphold shouldn’t have all that bothersome stuff about freedom of assembly and speech.

    Sound familiar? I think you had pictures of that demo on your blog!

    Spying on the US by the US

    Yes, Dubya no doubt broke the law with his secret spying inside the US. Even mainstream media appears to have awoken from its slumber and is
    savaging Bush for this. But it’s not just Dubya. The Pentagon is spying on those dangerous peaceniks too. Thi…
