Low Level Terrorism Activity: The ladies doth protest too much….

Posted by defensebaseactcomp on January 7, 2010

Mercenaries, Heroes, Scumbags, Patriots, Money Grubbers, we’ve heard it all or so we thought…..

According to the DoD are we Low Level Terrorists?

We have no choice but to Protest the treatment of our  injured contractors, widows, and their families by our government, AIG and CNA. (Rolling over and taking it is not a choice)

DoD’s Training Manual: Protests are Low Level Terrorism

The Training introduction reads as follows:  “Anti-terrorism (AT) and Force Protection (FP) are two facets of the Department of Defense (DoD) Mission Assurance Program. It is DoD policy, as found in DoDI 2000.16, that the DoD Components and the DoD elements and personnel shall be protected from terrorist acts through a high pirority, comprehensive, AT program. The DoD’s AT program shall be all encompassing using an integrated systems approach.”The first question of the Terrorism Threat Factors, “Knowledge Check 1” section reads as follows:

    I was totally fired up and did a little research. Here’s what I found at: http://open.salon.com/blog/dennis_loo/2009/06/22/dod_deletes_protest_terrorism_problems_remain

    As reported by Fox News:

    “The Pentagon has removed a controversial question from its anti-terrorism training exam that labeled ‘protests’ a form of ‘low-level terrorism,’ calling the question ‘poorly worded.’

    “A Pentagon spokesman said the question failed to make clear the difference between illegal violent demonstrations and constitutionally protected peaceful protests.

    I think they still feel the same way, they just got caught wording it wrong!!

    How preposterous, if anyone is engaged in terrorism against injured civilian contractors it’s the labor department’s office of administrative law judges.
    They are the ones ultimately responsible for aiding and abetting suicide and violence against innocent families by unlawfully denying treatment and benefits to enrich scumbags like AIG/ CAN.
    The ladies protest too little considering the calculated mistreatment and ruthless dirty tricks campaigns they had to endure in addition to the original injury.
    Talk about the pot calling the kettle black, it’s inevitably just a matter of time before one of their victims bite back in a not so low-level way.

    No doubt they still feel the same way.
    Maybe they also poorly worded the contracts of the CIA agents/State Dept/ USAID/Blackwater/Xe contractors in the same fashion.

    Wow!!

    I do not agree with a lot of stuff the ACLU does, but I wholeheartedly agree with this action!!!

    Janet Napolitano calling returning Iraq veterans “terrorists” is just as bad and should not have fallen off of the national radar until this joke of a woman was replaced!

    So far this administration is treating ANY dissent as “low level terrorism” by a bunch of right wing kooks. I was appalled by the “tea-bagging” jokes about the tea parties. The Obama Administration, and the left in general are notorious for stonewalling any dissent and not listening to the voice of the people.

    I truly believe there will be sweeping changes in both Houses this year after the elections.
