"Occupy" Participants Beware: Agents Provocateur Like The One at Air Space Museum Are Threat
Advertisements [?]

It's become clear that besides pepper-spray wielding police there is another threat to the "Occupy" movement-- agents provocateur.

The people who planned the protest against killer drones at the National Air and Space museum wanted to make a statement and send a message. They did not want to scare families and children or shut down the museum.

That was not on the agenda of admitted agent provocateur Patrick Howley, assistant editor at the right wing publication American Spectator. He brags about running ahead of other protesters, into the main museum area, in the process shocking and startling tourists. Howley reports in his braggadocio filled American Spectator article,


We can't verify his claim of forcing himself in and sprinting across the museum floor or even understand why, as an editor, he would do such a thing. What we do know is that his triumphant claim to be the "only one who made it through the doors," is patently inaccurate. So much for being the assistant editor of a news organization. He was absolutely not the only one who made it through the doors. Here's a photo by anti-war veteran, Bill Perry, of the three story banner several marchers displayed in the museum.
