Is the CIA Involved in the Crack Down of the Occupy Movement?
Below is an interview on RT television with Mara Verheyden-Hilliard, Executive Director of the Partnership for Civil Justice Fund, concerning the CIA’s refusal to process a Freedom of Information Request about the agency’s role in the coordinated crackdown against Occupy encampments. The Partnership made the request because of the quick series of seemingly coordinated crack-downs around the country and the involvement of the Department of Homeland Security in planning these actions. They asked a variety of federal agencies for any documents relating to their involvement. The CIA does have a history of being involved in spying on civil rights and anti-war leaders in the 1960s. The CIA refused to conduct a search of their records in response to the FOIA request. They plan to take further legal action against the CIA and any other agency that refuses to respond to their request.
