House Panel Wants Homeland Security Documents
hile the following story comes as no surprise to those who are already convinced the government has every intention of suppressing the Constitution and the blood bought rights that document entails, some are realizing that simply exercising our existing rights can bring about an unwanted attention from the Beast government Washington has become.
In the present instance, a House
committee has asked the Homeland Security Department to provide documents
about an agency policy the legislative branch has become aware of, in which many
Freedom of Information Act requests, commonly called FOIA
requests, are being illegally monitored. The Associated Press reported
that for well over a year, Homeland Security has sidetracked hundreds of
requests for federal records, and routed those requests to the desk of Homeland
Security chief Janet Napolitano.
The Freedom of Information Act
of 1996, was a major breakthrough in citizen's rights, as the law compelled
government agencies to respond to various written requests from citizens,
concerning their practices, activities, and records. Predictably, under the
guise of "national security," many responses to these requests have been
significantly redacted, with the now well known image of pages of text blacked
out rather commonplace.
Now, however, the Homeland Security
agency has been found to be monitoring citizen's requests for government data.
This means that if you are researching a matter, or just interested in learning
what records the government is maintaining on you, and you request those
records, the Homeland Security agency is interested in you -- a process that is
sure to have a chilling effect on civil liberties.
Even though the null and void in our society continue to dismiss the tyrannical actions of a government gone mad, the bottom line is, if you choose to exercise your rights under the law to request documents from the government, while you're reviewing the documents, the American Gestapo will be reviewing you.
