The MPIA requests are being filed with the MSP, the Washington/Baltimore High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area Office, and every local police department in places where demonstrations were held by the groups.

Andrew Foster Connors with Christian Peace Witness for Iraq. “The Christian Peace Witness for Iraq organizes and amplifies Christian voices for peace in cooperation with people of all faiths. I can’t for the life of me understand how a police organization would conclude that groups like ours would pose a threat to public order or safety. The real threat to the public comes from unbridled State power, which must be checked by the Maryland Legislature to ensure that this kind of spying never happens again.”

(The New York Times gave the matter only three short paragraphs buried in a story about another appropriations measure.)

Forget Wall Street!

Foreign countries will not finance US wars and YS consumption for ever. The US must accept the new reality that countries want to diversity, not accumulate dollars. What becomes of a country that refuses systemic correction and sets missions and agendas above facts and realities?
