Leaked FBI memo labels patriots, truth-seekers as potential 'terrorists'

(NaturalNews) If you harbor any beliefs other than those spoon-fed to you by government, you are increasingly considered an enemy of the state.

So says a recently discovered Justice Department memo, which - under a program named "Communities Against Terrorism" - instructs local law enforcement personnel to consider anyone who harbors "conspiracy theories" about what took place on 9/11 to be a potential terrorist.

According to DigitalJournal.com:

The memo thus adds 9/11-official-story skeptics to a growing list of targets described by federal law enforcement to be security threats, such as those who express "libertarian philosophies," "Second Amendment-oriented views," interest in "self-sufficiency," "fears of Big Brother or big government," and "Declarations of Constitutional rights and civil liberties."

A newly released national poll shows that 48 percent of Americans either have some doubts about the official account of 9/11, or do not believe it at all.


This isn't the first time the government has singled out freedom lovers

Titled, "Potential Indicators of Terrorist Activities Related to Sleepers," the FBI memo says people who need to be "considered suspicious" of potential involvement in "terrorist activity" include folks who have the "attitude" of "conspiracy theories about Westerners." Continuing, the memo lists an example: "e.g. the CIA arranged for 9/11 to legitimize the invasion of foreign lands."

Much of the memo appears to be directed at those who are either not native to America or who harbor ill-will towards the U.S. and its allies. Mentioned specifically are those who arrive "from countries where violent militant Islamic groups are known to operate"; those who have had "long, unexplained absences for purposes of religious education, charity work or pilgrimage"; and those who "travel to countries where militant Islam rules."

It also includes some rather obvious and legitimate concerns, such as urging police to keep an eye on anyone purchasing "chemicals or other dual use materials," and people "scouting out military bases, government buildings and other potential targets."

But this isn't the first time the federal government - especially under the current Obama regime - has made some extremely questionable and disturbing statements regarding Americans who simply disagree with the administration's policies. That includes our veterans.

In April 2009, just a few months after the Obama administration took office, then-Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano defended a report issued by her department that listed returning Afghanistan and Iraq military vets as potential terrorist risks.

As reported by The Washington Times:

In her statement Wednesday, Ms. Napolitano defended the report, which says "rightwing extremism" may include groups opposed to abortion and immigration, as merely one among several threat assessments. ...

"The document on right-wing extremism sent last week by this department's Office of Intelligence and Analysis is one in an ongoing series of assessments to provide situational awareness to state, local and tribal law enforcement agencies on the phenomenon and trends of violent radicalization in the United States," Ms. Napolitano said in her statement.


"This report appears to raise significant issues involving the privacy and civil liberties of many Americans - including war veterans," said Rep. Bennie Thompson, D-Miss., then-chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, adding that he was "dumbfounded" by the inclusion of U.S. military vets.

More examples of government mistrust of the citizenry

A few years later, in 2012, a "study" by Napolitano's DHS characterized Americans who are "suspicious of centralized federal authority," and "reverent of individual liberty" as "extreme right-wing" terrorists.

The report, titled, "Hot Spots of Terrorism and Other Crimes in the United States," 1970-2008 (see it here), was largely biased, as reported by Infowars.com at the time:

While largely omitting Islamic terrorism - the report fails completely to mention the 1993 World Trade Center bombing - the study focuses on Americans who hold beliefs shared by the vast majority of conservatives and libertarians and puts them in the context of radical extremism.

That there are questions concerning the events of 9/11 should never be taken as a "threat" by a government that has nothing to hide.
