Operation Sentinel, a new program unveiled by the New York City Police Department (NYPD) and U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), would encircle Manhattan with thousands of surveillance cameras that photograph every car or truck entering and exiting the city across its network of bridges and tunnels.

Information captured by this intrusive project would be stored in a huge database for an undisclosed period of time. Additionally, a network of sensors installed at toll plazas would allegedly be able to capable detect radiological materials that could be used in potential terror plots, the New York Times reports.

However, the New York Civil Liberties Union (NYCLU) has denounced the proposal as “an attack on New Yorkers’ right to privacy.” NYCLU Executive Director Donna Lieberman lambasted this outrageous proposal saying,

“The NYPD’s latest plan to track and monitor the movements of millions of law-abiding people is an assault on this country’s historical respect for the right to privacy and the freedom to be left alone. That this is happening without public debate, and that elected officials have had no opportunity to study this program is even more alarming.” (“NYCLU: NYPD Plan to Track Millions of Law-Abiding People is an Assault on Privacy Rights,” New York Civil Liberties Union, August 12, 2008)

Last month I reported on a high-tech surveillance system under development by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) called “Combat Zones That See” (CTS).
The 2003 program was predicated on the notion that once thousands of digital CCTV networks were installed across occupied or “homeland” cities, CTS would provide occupying troops–or police–with “motion-pattern analysis across whole city scales.” Based on complex algorithms linked to the numeric recognition of license plate numbers and scanned-in human profiles, CTS would furnish troops–or cops–real-time, “situational awareness” of the “battlespace.”

Despite repeated attempts by NYCLU to obtain information on Operation Sentinel, NYPD and DHS have refused to provide any information about their mega-surveillance system. While all traces of CTS disappeared from DARPA’s website, portions of the program have resurfaced with a vengeance, courtesy of the NYPD and DHS.

According to New York Times reporter Al Baker,

Data on each vehicle–its time-stamped image, license plate imprint and radiological signature–would be sent to a command center in Lower Manhattan, where it would be indexed and stored for at least a month as part of a broad security plan that emphasizes protecting the city’s financial district, the spokesman, Paul J. Browne, said. If it were not linked to a suspicious vehicle or a law enforcement investigation, it would be eliminated, he said. (“City Would Photograph Every Vehicle Entering Manhattan and Sniff Out Radiation,” The New York Times, August 12, 2008)

“It is one tool of ensuring that if there is somebody on a terrorist watch list or someone driving erratically, or if a pattern develops that raises suspicions, it gives them an opportunity to investigate further and–if need be–track down the drivers or the passengers,” he said. “The bottom line is they can’t frisk everybody coming into Manhattan; they cannot wand everyone, as they do at airports. This is a passive collection of data that is not as personally invasive as what they do at airports.”

Geraldo: Time Square bombing done by 9/11 Truther

Geraldo Rivera conflates 9/11 skeptics with Terrorists – March 7, 2008

Geraldo Rivera: “I think that this bomber isn’t Al Qaeda, isn’t anything like that… He’s more like those ‘9/11 was an inside job’ kind of guys… Protesting in a violent way, but in a violent way almost like the eco-terrorists… where they don’t intend to inflict casualties.”

On March 6, 2008, a US Armed Forces recruiting station was bombed by an unknown individual. It took Geraldo Rivera just over 24 hours to start planting a notion in the heads of millions of FOX News viewers that “9/11 was an inside job kind of guys” were likely responsible for the bombing.

This is a dangerous and false meme that Rivera is planting in the heads of millions of people. And as the Big Lebowski would say, “This agression will not stand… man!”

911blogger.com utterly rejects the use of violence to communicate anything. By anyone. That includes Geraldo Rivera. Rivera is infamous partly because he has built his notoriety on the violent incident which occurred on his television show in 1988.

A brawl broke out on the set between racists purposefully invited to the show, and some other guests, it doesn’t take a genius to figure out that the violence was expected. “A November 1988 cover of Newsweek carried a close-up of his bashed face next to a headline reading, “Trash TV: From the Lurid to the Loud, Anything Goes.”

FOX News says “We Love to Hear From Our Viewers!”

Let’s take them up on the offer. After all, you’re a viewer now… My suggestion is that we all ask for a retraction or apology for this outrageous comment, and Geraldo should have on the air David Ray Griffin to talk about his great new book, 9/11 Contradictions.

Letters Unrelated To Times Square Blast

Law Enforcement: Letters Unrelated To Times Square Blast

CBS
March 7, 2008

Letters and photos of a Times Square military recruiting station received by members of Congress in recent days were unrelated to an explosion at the Manhattan facility Thursday, law enforcement officials say.

The letters — which were sent to eight House Democrats who represent the New York City area and possibly to other members as well — reportedly included the words “We did it,” a photo of someone standing in front of the recruiting station and what one source called a “20-page rambling rant.”

Capitol Police alerted congressional offices about the missives Thursday night, asking that any members who received one to “immediately contact the USCP Command Center” as part of an “ongoing criminal investigation.”

But as the Associated Press is now reporting, law enforcement officials believe the person who sent the letters to members of Congress is an anti-war activist from the Los Angeles area who seems to have had no connection to the explosion at the military recruiting facility.

“It was just an incredibly unbelievable coincidence,” one law enforcement official tells the AP.

Capitol Police said Thursday that, while the letters sent to members of Congress contained “a reference to the military recruiting office in New York City,” they did not make “any threat to the congressional community or members of Congress.”

According to the AP, law enforcement officials do not intend to file charges against the man who sent the letters.
