U.S. Army Characterizes People “Frustrated WithMainstream Ideologies” As Terrorists
October 2
2012By Paul Joseph WatsonPrison Planet.com
Individuals who “believe in government conspiracies” also framed as violent radicals
A leaked U.S. Army document obtained by Wired Magazine characterizes people“frustratedwith mainstream ideologies” as potential terrorists, while also framing those who “believe ingovernment conspiracies” as violent radicals.
“These are some warning signs that that you have turned into a terrorist who will soon killyour co-workers, according to the U.S. military. You’ve recently changed your “choices inentertainment.” You have “peculiar discussions.” You “complain about bias,” you’re “sociallywithdrawn” and you’re frustrated with “mainstream ideologies,”writes Spencer Ackerman.The manual (PDF) was produced in 2011 by the Asymmetric Warfare Group, a unit within theU.S. Army headquartered at Fort Meade, Maryland. The document is intended to weed out“internal threats” within the ranks of U.S. soldiers.Given that both theDepartment of Homeland Securityandthe FBIhave identified returning veterans as one of the primary domestic terror threats, the document is seemingly designedto spot such radical extremists well ahead of time.Examples of behavior that is considered an indication of potential terrorism include thefollowing:
Complaining about bias
Being frustrated with “mainstream ideologies”
Being reclusive
Believing in government conspiracies “to the point of paranoia”
Visiting “extremist” websites or blogs
Altering your reading habits
Having “peculiar discussions”
Being “highly emotional”
Using “social networks”The Army manual is just one of numerous similar manuals and publications issued bymilitary, law enforcement and the federal government over the last decade which definemundane behavior as extremist and a potential indication of terrorism.As we reported earlier this month,a leaked training manual used in the State and Local Anti-Terrorism Training (SLATT) program for law enforcement and funded by the Department of Justice lists political bumper stickers expressing opposition to the United Nations andsupport for the bill of rights as indications of terrorist activity.The document also characterizes people who hold political opinions that “represent a fairlypopular point of view” as terrorists. Anti-abortion activists are also listed as terrorists under this category.The infamous 2009 MIAC report, published by the Missouri Information Analysis Center andfirst revealed by Infowars, framed Ron Paul supporters, libertarians, people who displaybumper stickers, people who own gold, or even people who fly a U.S. flag, as potentialterrorists.Under the FBI’s Communities Against Terrorism program, the bulk purchase of food is also labeled as a potential indication of terrorist activity, as is using cash to pay for a cup of coffee, and showing an interest in web privacy when using the Internet in a public place.A recent Department of Homeland Security-funded study
produced by the NationalConsortium for the Study of Terrorism and Responses to Terrorism at the University of
