Apart from the involvement of ICE, Immigration and Customs Enforcement which operates under DHS, the Department of Homeland Security and its head, Janet Napolitano, have been conspicuously missing from the scandal involving illegal activity by multiple agencies of the U.S. Government in placing firearms into the hands of criminals in Mexico and Honduras. Evidence now suggests that the involvement of DHS is primarily on a different front, although connected to the goal of the Obama Administration to arm drug cartels and weaken the ability of U.S. citizens to effectively defend themselves by enacting new gun control measures. DHS apparently considers white, middle class citizens to be terrorists, as depicted in the video embedded in the left column.
The video is part of Homeland Security’s $10 million dollar “See Something, Say Something” program that encourages Americans to report “suspicious activity,” which in every case throughout history has been a trait of oppressive, dictatorial regimes.
In the course of the 10 minute clip, a myriad of different behaviors are characterized as terrorism, including opposing surveillance, using a video camera, talking to police officers, wearing hoodies, driving vans, writing on a piece of paper, and using a cell phone recording application.
