Homeland Security is gearing up to accelerate the roll out of its domestic spying program by teaming up with the Department of Justice to expand the Nationwide Suspicious Activity Reporting (SAR) Initiative, and in doing so cites the justification of the alleged plot to bomb a Christmas tree lighting ceremony in Portland, a case of entrapment where the would-be bomber was groomed, set-up and even provided with a fake bomb by the FBI.
“To help federal, state, local, and tribal law enforcement agencies better share this information, the Nationwide Suspicious Activity Reporting (SAR) Initiative (NSI) has taken the processes that law enforcement agencies have used for years, and established a unified, standards based approach for all levels of government to gather, document, process, analyze, and share information about behavior-based suspicious activities that potentially have a nexus to terrorism while rigorously protecting privacy, civil rights, and civil liberties of all Americans,” states the DHS press release.
Big Sis is working closely with the U.S. Department of Justice to unfold more tentacles of a domestic informant program which has already manifested itself with telescreens at Wal-Mart checkouts telling shoppers to report on members of their community, in addition to further announcements and signs at the upcoming Super Bowl to be held at the Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas this Sunday.
The DHS press release cites the alleged “plot to bomb a Christmas tree lighting ceremony in Portland Oregon” as a justification for the expansion of domestic spying.
As we documented at the time, the man accused of attempting to blow up a Christmas tree in Portland’s Pioneer Courthouse Square, Mohamed Osman Mohamud, was a befuddled patsy, groomed and radicalized from start to finish by the FBI as part of a radicalization and entrapment program.
