    Turning the US army against AmericansAn antiwar activist has been accused of spying for the US army, raising legal questions the Obama administration must answer


    It was an odd little story, tucked well inside the front section of this past Sunday's New York Times.

    An antiwar activist in the state of Washington had been exposed as an undercover informant for the US army, stationed at massive Fort Lewis, south of Tacoma. And in one of those Kafkaesque twists for which our government is renowned, the army is now investigating itself to determine how such an arrangement came to pass.

    Although the Times gave no credit, the story had been broken on 28 July by Democracy Now!, a leftwing television programme co-anchored by Amy Goodman, a longtime progressive journalist. For nearly an hour, two former associates of John Towery – a civilian employee of the army – explained how they learned their fellow activist was in fact a military spy.

    "We hung out," said Brendan Maslauskas Dunn, who filed the public-records request that inadvertently outed Towery, who had been going by the name John Jacob. "We gave workshops together on grassroots direct democracy and anarchist struggle. I mean, he was a friend."

    Fellow activist Drew Hendricks offered a weird twist, telling Goodman that, as far back as 2007, Towery identified himself as an army employee and offered to provide Hendricks with "observations and inside knowledge of operations on Fort Lewis".

    The picture that emerges is worthy of a cheap spy novel. If Maslauskas Dunn and Hendricks are correct, then Towery truthfully told antiwar activists that he worked for the army, but lied about his name and real purpose: gathering intelligence on his new associates and what threat they might have posed. (According to the Times, antiwar groups in Washington have attempted to "disrupt military shipments".)...................................... .



    Both CU & DU should be able to agree that if Towery is guilty as alleged a nest of government vipers have earned jail terms and in such case if Obama does not provide those terms then he is simply a continuation of the Bush assault on the Constitution.

    That's as far as anyone needs to read this.

    sad that your head is a empty as your mind is closed. Sad but not surprising that an empty head and closed mind come in tandem.
