Yet, with networking, sharing of information, and exposure of the agents, such covert action is not insurmountable. New adversaries, new motivations and new rationales have surfaced in recent years to challenge much of the conventional wisdom..." Dr.Bruce Hoffman, Director of RAND, Washington One has to wonder why anything that "challenges the conventional wisdom" must be considered "terrorism? All you have to do is create or infiltrate groups that supposedly "think out of the box," then subvert them or drive them to irrational acts, or even commit terrorist acts in their names, and there you have it!
The FBI set out to eliminate "radical" political opposition inside the US.
When traditional modes of repression (exposure, blatant harassment, and prosecution for political crimes) failed to counter the growing insurgency, and even helped to fuel it, the Bureau took the law into its own hands and secretly used fraud and force to sabotage constitutionally - protected political activity.
"The miniature art of the seal cutter is of peculiar social as well as aesthetic interest.
The idea of making personal identity marks by impressing intaglios on clay sealings began, as we have seen, in Protoliterate times and was later extended to tablets.
They are the "sales team" that sell the ideas upon which the later acts of terrorism depend for effectiveness.
They are here, now, in our world in the guise of Promulgators of End of the World and Conspiracy Theories, and running New Age Circuses, seminars, work-shops and "methods" or techniques for "ascension," or accomplishing any of a dozen occult or purported spiritual aims. Schools, workshops, seminars, conferences, "workings" and just a whole host of fun activities are utilized to part the individual from his money, his sanity, his free will, and in some cases, even his life.
Also the denomination of conspicuous stars or constellations does not constitute an astronomical science. Sitchin from astronomical interpretations of great specificity based upon little more than epigraphic evidence.
Sitchin and those who follow his lead see great astronomical truths in every object d'art of ancient times, never supposing for an instant that there could be far more prosaic explanations for many of these things.
Left uncontested, their sophistry could disarm a new generation of activists, leaving them vulnerable to government subversion.
In addition to political activists, it seems that COINTELPRO has particularly targeted groups that are seeking the truth about the interactions between the US government and Ultra Terrestrials, or so-called "aliens - denizens of hyperdimensional realities." The COINTELPRO files show the U. government targeting a very broad range of religious, labor and community groups opposed to any of its agendas, and it would be foolish to not realize that this very operation extends to the US cover-up of its "alien agenda." The presence of a COINTELPRO operation also goes far in explaining why, when the sincere researcher enters this field, he or she discovers only lies, lies, and more lies. And it is clearly deliberate, promulgated by Metaphysical Mavens and New Age Impresarios - COINTELPRO agents, all of them.
University professors and congressional committees that helped to expose the domestic covert action of the past now deny its persistence in the present.
