Private Spies Stalk The Internet
Trying to entrap non-existent "Al-Qaeda cells" into incriminating themselves

An organization of highly trained, committed and ruthless individuals with links to global intelligence agencies are using the Internet to try to foment terrorism in order to advance their unified political agenda. No it's not Al-Qaeda, it's Vigil, the elite private spies who are stalking the web and telling the government about any e-speech they deem suspicious.

The Scotsman reports,

The organisation is not the US Central Intelligence Agency or Britain's MI6 but Vigil, a shadowy network of retired spies, senior military personnel, anti-terrorism specialists and banking experts.

"Sixty per cent of Vigil's work involves gaining information via the internet, by infiltrating chatrooms."

"The information gleaned is passed on to authorities such as the FBI, and British Counter Terrorism Command (CTC)."

As has been exhaustively documented on this website, 90% of alleged major terror busts target either completely innocent people caught in a dragnet or are outright examples of entrapment, incitement and guilt by association.

It comes as no surprise therefore that Vigil's main boast is that it helped snag hook-handed hate preacher Abu Hamza by tricking Hamza "into handing over videos and audio tapes which were used by US authorities in their case against James Ujaama, who pleaded guilty in 2004 to trying to help al-Qaeda militants."

Having trigger-happy retired spooks who were schooled in the mind set of Cold War paranoia, eager to please new masters for lucrative payoffs and fat pensions, actively embed themselves in Internet chat rooms, on forums and social networking sites to search for terrorists based on what they type is only going to lead to more frame-ups and false suspicions.

But why should that concern the Bush or Blair juntas? After all, they find no qualms in using "Al-Qaeda confessionals" knowingly obtained by torture and graciously provided by the barbarous regime of Uzbekistan. Any contribution by Vigil that will keep the phantom war against non-existent groups rolling is welcomed.

And so it goes that Vigil's noble efforts to cleanse the world wide web of its malcontents fits into a broader strategy on behalf of the US and UK to infiltrate, pollute, misdirect and criminalize the Internet. This is part of a chilling effect to dissuade people from speaking their minds about the mess in Iraq, the real story behind 9/11 and the war on terror in fear that their every word might be twisted and passed off as some kind of code for terror.

- The White House's own recently de-classified strategy for "winning the war on terror" targets Internet conspiracy theories as a recruiting ground for terrorists and threatens to "diminish" their influence.

- In addition, the Pentagon recently announced its effort to infiltrate the Internet and propagandize for the war on terror.

- In a speech last month, Homeland Security director Michael Chertoff identified the web as a "terror training camp," through which "disaffected people living in the United States" are developing "radical ideologies and potentially violent skills."

Chertoff pledged to dispatch Homeland Security agents to local police departments in order to aid in the apprehension of domestic terrorists who use the Internet as a political tool.

- The European Union, led by former Stalinist and potential future British Prime Minister John Reid, has also vowed to shut down "terrorists" who use the Internet to spread propaganda.

The establishment is hell-bent on smearing bloggers as terror sympathizers, rabble-rousers and extremists, Daddy Bush being the latest to publicly scorn online activists for creating an "ugly climate."

Spying on critics of the "war on terror" and its erosion of civil liberties would gain currency according to one respondent to the Scotsman piece, who urged Vigil to investigate, "some of the extreme comments from posters," which "could keep Vigil & his crew busy for a while."
