Obama Continues Bush's Homeland Spyinng Operations

Amy Goodman reports on activists in Olympia, Washington who discovered one of their own was actually a spy for the US military! This infiltration is in direct violation of the Posse Comitatus Act of 1878.

There is a key difference between this instance and the scene from Michael Moore's documentary Fahrenheit 9/11 where a peace group in Fresno, California was infiltrated by the local Sheriff's office. According to the law the incident described by Moore seems to be legal albeit troubling whereas this recent incident in Olympia VIOLATES FEDREAL LAW! The Posse Comitatus Act prohibits members of the Army, Air Force, and State National Guard forces (when such are called into federal service) from exercising nominally state law enforcement, police, or peace officer powers that maintain "law and order" on non-federal property.

Do not get me wrong, I still like what Obama is doing for this country overall but this kind of thing must stop NOW.
