An intelligence expert says an FBI source tells him that the Bureau spied on Americans who took part in "TEA party" rallies last week.
The Northeast Intelligence Network and Canada Free Press report a single-page confidential directive issued by FBI headquarters in Washington, DC, was sent to each of the 56 field offices located across the United States on or about March 23. Those directives reportedly instructed the special agents in charge of those offices to verify the date, time, and location of each TEA Party ("Taxed Enough Already") within their region and supply that information to FBI headquarters in Washington.
Northeast Intelligence Network director Doug Hagmann says his FBI source alleges that a second directive, issued on or about April 6, instructed each special agent in charge to coordinate and conduct covert video surveillance and data collection of the participants of the TEA parties. Most of those gatherings occurred on April 15 -- "Tax Day."
Hagmann says the government's portrayal of "constitutionalists and patriots" as right-wing extremists and domestic terrorists has been occurring for the last two decades.
