Doctors, accountants, ministers, lawyers, demonstrators – they’re all government agents as America descends into total police state

The United States government has long employed undercover agents to conduct investigative work, but in the past these practices were generally limited to law enforcement agencies such as the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

It has been revealed recently, however, that more than 40 federal agencies are now conducting their own undercover operations, and it may come as a surprise to many people just how widespread the practice has become.

For example, the Agriculture Department has more than 100 undercover agents who pose as food stamp recipients in an effort to catch those involved in fraud. The Supreme Court employs undercover agents to pose as protesters during demonstrations, and the IRS sends agents into the field to catch tax evaders.

In fact, these various agencies are currently employing undercover agents who pose as — according to The New York Times — “business people, welfare recipients, political protesters and even doctors or ministers.”

Observers are concerned that the increased number of undercover operations will lead to civil liberties abuses and entrapment issues, as well as many other problems.

As The New York Times article reports, these operations have already “resulted in hidden problems, with money gone missing, investigations compromised and agents sometimes left largely on their own for months.”

The increase in undercover operations is partly due to heightened security concerns since the 911 attacks, but many of them are not related to domestic terrorism.
