Investigative journalism link round-up
Greetings weary travelers. Here are some good examples of douchebag-exposery.
First off, our pal Jon Elmer has done some reporting on the Department of National Defence’s preparations of a comprehensive counter-insurgency field manual for its soldiers and officers. Read part one and part two (via Inter Press Service).
Next up is a report from the Washington Post about the unwieldy and ever-expanding TIDE (Terrorist Identities Datamart Environment – who comes up with these names?) database and how it be so caraaazzzyyy.
Lastly, the New York Times just ran a story about NYPD infiltration and spying operations against groups and individuals worldwide in the lead-up to the 2004 Republican National Convention in New York City. (The reporter Jim Dwyer was also interviewed on Democracy Now! on Monday – sounding reticent to actually answer questions. I wonder why?)
