California National Guard Spying on Americans?
Posted on Thu, Jul. 07, 2005

Army investigators began looking into concerns Wednesday that the California National Guard was engaging in domestic spying as a state senator looking into the matter charged the federal probe was being used to block his own inquiry.

One day after being denied access to a Guard computer that had its hard drive wiped clean, Sen. Joe Dunn said he would seek legislative subpoenas today to gain access to the information central to his investigation and lashed out at military officials standing in his way.

Dunn launched his investigation last week after the Mercury News reported on the creation of a new National Guard intelligence unit that has been given ``broad authority'' to set up new anti-terrorism projects in California.

``If they continue in what I refer to as bunker mentality here, it simply confirms to us that our worst suspicions may in fact be true,'' the Garden Grove Democrat said.

2. Most Army Intelligence units are actually National Guard units

At the brigade and battalion level. Something that I've come across in my research. There are also Psychological Operations and Civil Affairs units that deal mostly in disseminating propaganda.

erased.

This is to strange. Because of the events in London this action maybe used to justify this Intelligence Unit. This is nothing more than stepping on our civil rights.
