    Yea, that was during Clinton, but it didn't mean that they weren't monitoring people.
    It was only 2 guys that did all that and you can't catch them all.

    Pete, you need to chill man.
    Like it or not, the FBI, among the other acronym organizations, monitor a lot of activity.
    This website is likely monitored as well.

    Whats funny, is libertarians love to say that libertarianism is anti-rich .... yet tons and tons of the super rich and financial elite are pro-libertarian and the ruling class were totally supportive of the tea party movement.

    Yet some people come together to fight agianst money in democracy? The state and ruling class go ape****. Just goes to show what really is a threat to real power.

    Pete, every time you comment on US politics, you reveal how little you know. Hint: The FBI tracked and monitored the Tea Party.

    Oh for gods sake...You do realize that no amount of monitoring is going to see everything, right?

    Yes I do.. but do you and your fellow citizens?

    My whole point is, that society in general have been ignoring right wing groups thanks to Fox News and the right wing media spin machine and suddenly when you point out that most terror in the US is actually from the right wing, not from the left wing (that was in the 70s!), then you get attacked.

    Look at the attacks since 9/11... name one left wing plot. There are plenty of right wing plots.. yes muslim "plots" are right wing... but where are the left wing plots to destroy a building or similar? No where.

    Looking at OWS is nothing but utter bull**** and a waste of time. If anything they should be looking into the abuse of police power against OWS in several cities but nooo.. the right wing spin machine have made OWS the bad guys for demanding justice when it comes to the banks and bankers who drove the economy into the ground.. pathetic. If anything, the FBI should be monitoring and openly investigating morons like Hannity and Limburger, not mostly peaceful protesters wanting justice.

    Your ignorance of the US is staggering. Looking at OWS and the Tea Party is precisely what the FBI should do, at least until such time as they are proven to be not a threat. No one is ignoring anything. Those of us who actually live here and know what people talk about and think, we know that people are aware of right wing terrorism. Thank you for playing, but it was not a very good effort.

    I really dont understand why people think this is news. Did anyone think the FBI wouldnt monitor OWS? Or any other large scale politically active orginization? if so please explain on what planet you live!

    Typical. Any left wing social justice movement is always treated as a "potential terrorist threat" here in the US. Each and every time a left wing movement has gotten steam and became popular in the US its always a "potential threat", civil rights, anti war movement, labor movement. You have the freedom to protest apparently only under the careful watch of the FBI in this country. Big brother at its finest.
    Considering all the domestic damage OWS was responsible for, I find it to be a no-brainer that the FBI was keeping tabs on them...especially since it was started by a foreigner.
