Homeland Security Conducts “Top Secret” July 4 Drill

The Department of Homeland Security is conducting a “top secret” drill codenamed ‘Operation Independence’ across the United States today, during which officers in riot gear as well as undercover agents will patrol transport hubs.

According to a report by KTTV, the exercise is a “full scale terrorism drill” taking place nationwide. In Los Angeles, the drill involves the LA County Sheriff’s Department, Homeland Security and TSA agents, as well as plain clothed officers who will be, “working undercover, looking like any other passenger, they scour faces, briefcases and backpacks, looking for anything out of the ordinary.”

Officials claim the drills are to make the public feel “safe” in light of claims that the alleged Boston Bombers had planned a July 4 terror attack in New York.

According to Nicole Nishida of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, Americans will celebrate their “independence” from tyranny by submitting to random bag searches.

Although the drill is “high visibility” in one sense – cops dressed in riot gear will be involved – many details of the exercise remain “top secret and that’s the way it should be. Only they need to know what the game plan is,” reports KTTV.

Instead of asking hard questions about what precisely taxpayer dollars were being spent on, the news channel prsotituted itself to become a mouthpiece for the authorities, justifying the drill by hyping the threat of terrorism – when in reality academic studies show that Americans are more likely to be killed by accident-causing deer, severe allergic reactions to peanuts, or bee stings than they are by terrorists.

“What we need to know, or rather be reminded of, is that the threats, homegrown and imported, are all too real. And in one way, we’re all undercover agents who need to be aware of our surroundings,” states the report, encouraging Americans to become spies for the state.

The report also failed to mention that virtually all of the major domestic terror plots in the United States over the last decade have been “hatched by the FBI,” as the New York Times reported.

L.A. County’s Homeland Security Division chief Ted Sexton admitted that the DHS drill was not based on “any credible threat information.”

The sycophantic KTTV report even urged Americans to say “thank you” to uniformed agents who would be eyeballing them at at Union Station.

As we reported yesterday, many Americans frustrated with over the top security measures have given up on celebrating Independence Day altogether, noting that the stifling precautions have left them with little “freedom” to exercise.

    Tempora: The Americans And The British Are Recording All Phone Calls And All Internet Activity!
    by Michael Snyder, http://thetruthwins.com/
    What would you do if you knew that the government had tapped all of your phones, was watching everything that you do on the Internet and was keeping a copy of all of your emails? Well, the truth is that this is essentially exactly what is happening right now. Over in the UK, a British intelligence agency known as Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ) has tapped into the cables that all of our phone calls and all of our Internet activity go through. All of the information that goes through those cables – phone calls, Internet searches, Facebook activity, emails, etc. – is gathered, recorded and stored by GCHQ. This information gathering program is referred to as “Tempora”. It is being reported that GCHQ records 600 million “telephone events” every day. In addition, GCHQ shares all of the data that it gathers with the NSA. Reportedly, there are 850,000 people in the United States that have top secret clearance that have access to this data. Needless to say, nothing that you do on your phone or on the Internet will ever be “private” ever again.

    The Guardian first broke the story about Tempora thanks to information that it received from whistleblower Edward Snowden. According to the Guardian, Tempora has been operational for about 18 months… 9/11 was a inside job!
