You’ll Never Guess Who Homeland Security Considers A Terrorist Threat…

The lengthy report was intended for “Trusted Agents Only” and included information the agency stipulated could be “disseminated only on a need-to-know basis.”

A recently released internal document shows what type of group Homeland Security believes poses a serious cyber terrorism threat. The lengthy report was intended for “Trusted Agents Only” and included information the agency stipulated could be “disseminated only on a need-to-know basis.”

The entire document was leaked, however; and a passage near the very end reveals a training exercise that might explain the perceived need for such stringent secrecy. According to directives, even those directly involved in the mission were not to be allowed access to the files.
 
 



The passage in question sought to counter an attack by a group known as ‘Free Americans against Socialist Tyranny,’ which, according to the detailed scenario, is planning a cyber-attack in response to the federal government’s implementation of martial law.

Members of the fictionalized group, obviously crafted to resemble a growing number of pro-freedom movements in the U.S., “advertise anti-U.S. rhetoric focusing on the Department of Defense as well as to recruit like-minded individuals to join their ‘cause,’” the document warns.

Not only is the Department of Homeland Security apparently worried about the actions of those who oppose a police state; the exercise includes a passage regarding “the greatest threat” posed by the group.

“It is believed that there are employees within US Northern Command, U.S. Air Force, U.S. Army, National Guard, and Defense Information Systems Agency that may support Free Americans against Socialist Tyranny doctrine based on individual comments on social media sites,” the document continues. “Free Americans against Social Tyranny sympathizers may include both former and current members of the military with training on satellite communications, computer network defense, network operations, as well as military command and control.”

For the agency tasked with protecting Americans from terrorists following the 9/11 attacks, DHS seems inordinately concerned with the speculative risk inherent in conservative groups only concerned with protecting the U.S. Constitution.

A previous department study defined the “extreme right-wing” as those “suspicious of centralized federal authority” and “reverent of individual liberty,” indicating those who identify with these traits pose a risk to their own country. Unfortunately, individuals who hold what previous generations considered American values are now identified by our government as potential terrorists.

It really makes me wonder if all the military-involved war games with local sheriffs and law enforcement- have anything to do with this?

It makes ME wonder if GOPBR is among the "social network sites" they monitor for people who oppose socialism.

Does anyone have a copy that's not on scribd?  I hate that service because it's as intrusive and fascist as facebook with all the data it wants.

probably, given the current Alexa rankings (better than a lot of other conservative-oriented sites).

No. The link I posted was obtained within the original article posted.

If you search 
NEP Capstone Exercise 2014

You will land on a FEMA page with very little detail.

I don't think the focus is conclusive, but I do agree that it's worrisome - after all, there are plenty of other more likely terrorists, like that college kid who just got busted for trying to become a muslim terrorist - and would suggest that everyone email a copy of it to their Senators and their Representative, point to the relevant passages, and explain (a) just how offensive it is, and (b) how it comes perilously close to suggesting that suppressing domestic political dissent is an acceptable goal for agencies of the federal government, and ask that they investigate in full.  Do this whether your Congress-critters are republican or democrat.

And urge your like-minded friends and family to do the same.

Finally, if you really want to have an impact, and don't mind the printing and shipping costs, print out a copy (double-sided, just as the original printed edition would be) and mail it to your Congress critters.  Nothing impresses so much as does a huge volume of neatly printed, bound paper.

Interesting and ominous.  It doesn't really surprise me though, I think we've all felt in our gut that this is where our current gov't is heading.
