U.S. directs agents to cover up

Cover ups use to be bad.

Not anymore.   Not when it comes to using data that is gathered illegally and used against
American citizens.

A secretive U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration unit is funneling information from intelligence intercepts, wiretaps, informants and a massive database of telephone records to authorities across the nation to help them launch criminal investigations of Americans.

The unit of the DEA that distributes the information is called the Special Operations Division, or SOD. Two dozen partner agencies comprise the unit, including the FBI, CIA, NSA, Internal Revenue Service and the Department of Homeland Security.  It was created in 1994 to combat Latin American drug cartels and has grown from several dozen employees to several hundred.

Agents were instructed to cover up this activity from the public, from juries, defense attorneys, and Judges.   Welcome to Stalinist Russia.

One current federal prosecutor learned how agents were using SOD tips after a drug agent misled him, the prosecutor told Reuters. In a Florida drug case he was handling, the prosecutor said, a DEA agent told him the investigation of a U.S. citizen began with a tip from an informant. When the prosecutor pressed for more information, he said, a DEA supervisor intervened and revealed that the tip had actually come through the SOD and from an NSA intercept.

“I was pissed,” the prosecutor said. “Lying about where the information came from is a bad start if you’re trying to comply with the law because it can lead to all kinds of problems with discovery and candor to the court.” The prosecutor never filed charges in the case because he lost confidence in the investigation, he said.

So drop you facebook account now.  Your little friends don’t need to know where you are going on vacation anyway.

    In my opinion this is further evidence of the regime FEARING the American public. If they didn’t, why would they try to hide so much?! Russia, China, Venezuela, Cuba…they don’t do this on the same scale with their people! Yet we are suffering from the mindset that the regime is all powerful and they have us in a stranglehold and there is nothing we can do but give in. Yet they are hiding in their bunkers in Washington under the protection of some damned barrage balloons!!!

    COWARDS.

    Speaking of cowards, a REAL Prosecutor would have started an investigation into the regime’s lying agencies ultimately filing charges on them. Why didn’t he? Like so many others, he doesn’t have the courage of his convictions.

      Dems are almost always cowards. There might be a few who are stupid enough to stand and fight, but they will be dispatched quickly. The others will go off to the labor camps voluntarily. I propose that the only new owners of ‘outside’ labor be black conservatives. Kind of like, pickin one’s own cotton.
