(INTELLIHUB) — During my research of secret government programs, which include the vicious Post-911 COINTELPRO, I came across a webpost by Paul Baird. I extracted his most important points, which explain how the federal government gets away with covert testing and harassment.
Paul Baird wrote:
The secret technologies in question are covered by military/agency secrecy orders, mostly obtained under the US Inventions Secrecy Act, 1951.
The US Patriot Act, for example, protects governments and connected criminals from criticism and/or detection and prosecution. Under this act anyone whistleblowing or fighting the system on a major concern is arbitrarily deemed to be unpatriotic (when it’s the criminals they criticize who betray us).
[…] They can then be listed […] as a security risk and harassed covertly; using secret technologies. In fact a Department of Defense Directive (Directive 5240 1-R, 1994) gives open permission for those under surveillance to be used for remote experimentation.
