CIA won’t disclose involvement in OWS crackdowns

With demonstrators suspecting governmental assistance in the crackdowns clobbering Occupy Wall Street encampments, the CIA is trying to distance itself from divulging any incriminating evidence regarding their role in the raids.

The Partnership for Civil Justice (PCJF), a Washington DC-based civil rights group, filed a Freedom of Information Act request last month to see what role, if any, the CIA has had in the brutal raids of OWS encampments that have left thousands jailed and droves of demonstrators beaten, in some instances ending up in intensive care. Now after reviewing the request to publically release any information, the Agency is scoffing at the PCJF, who in turn is calling this “a classic case of CIA-double speak” used to hide its involvement.

Any CIA involvement in the crackdowns would break not just departmental code but national legislation. As a result, even if there was involvement, the Agency won’t investigate it because any leads could yield the revelation of (surprise!) wrongdoing within the CIA.

Specifically, Mara Verheyden-Hilliard, executive director of the PCJF, asked the agency to disclose “any documents or information pertaining to Federal coordination of, or advice or consultation regarding, the police response to the Occupy movement, protests or encampments.”

  1. Hello! I understand this is somewhat off-topic however
    I had to ask. Does running a well-established blog like yours require a large amount of work?

    I am brand new to running a blog but I do write in
    my journal daily. I’d like to start a blog so I can share my experience and views online.
    Please let me know if you have any kind of recommendations or tips for brand new aspiring bloggers.

    primary role. Fast food allows Americans to exchange
    calories for convenience. It is unfortunate that the screen is not too visible out
    in the sun and the quality of the pictures taken using the in-built camera are way below expectations.

  3. I was just seeking this info for a while. After 6 hours of continuous Googleing,
    at last I got it in your site. I wonder what is the lack of Google strategy that do not
    rank this type of informative sites in top of the list.
    Generally the top web sites are full of garbage.

  8. I don’t write a comment, however I read a few of the responses on CIA won’t disclose involvement in OWS crackdowns | Occupy Wall Street:
    Pictures, Videos, Petitions, Demands and Occupy the Game.
    I do have a couple of questions for you if it’s allright.
    Could it be just me or does it look like like a few of
    these comments appear as if they are written by brain dead
    individuals? :-P And, if you are posting on additional
    online sites, I would like to keep up with anything new
