- Hi Jeff , Just passing this on.
- The source is pretty reliable.
- Note - We cannot verify this story but found it to be
worth reading. The article
- was partially sourced from http://www.isil.org/store/terrorism/shadow.html
- Last February, the Transportation Security Agency announced
that all U.S. citizens who fly would be assigned a green, yellow or red
travel code under a new system known as CAAPS II - "Computer Assisted
- A green code means you fly like normal. A yellow
code means you would be subject to repeated searches and interrogation
by police before you would be allowed to fly. A red code means you can't
fly and may be arrested.
- The system will eventually be expanded to every
form of public transportation, including ships, trains and buses. It will
probably also be expanded eventually to issuing driver's licenses and even
opening bank accounts.
- The criteria for determining your travel code is secret,
and there is no provision for challenging it.
- So, if you're assigned a yellow or red travel code,
and you are prohibited from visiting your own children or lose your job
because you keep on missing business flights while police interrogate you,
- Now TSA has dropped another shocker: The number
of U.S. citizens to be initially yellow- or red-coded is enormous! Up to
8% of all U.S. citizens are to be yellow-coded initially, and 2-3% red-coded.
That's 10% of the entire U.S. adult population!
- TSA says they plan to implement this system nationwide
within 12 months.
- And CAAPS II is just one of many threats you now face
to your liberty and privacy, in post 9-11 America, including:
- MASSIVE SURVEILLANCE OF YOUR MOVEMENTS & FINANCES
- Under Total Information Awareness, the Pentagon
is now creating comprehensive, computerized dossiers on every man, woman
and child in America. (Code names: "The Beast" and "the
Matrix.") If anything suspicious turns up, expect a visit from the
new security police.
- CONFISCATION OF YOUR CASH
- The USA Patriot Act creates the new crime of "bulk
cash smuggling.' If you now leave or enter the U.S. without declaring
that you have more than $10,000 in cash or currency instruments, you can
be stripped of your money - without any proof you have committed any crime.
You can also be sentenced to five years in prison.
- Even carrying more than a few hundred dollars in
cash in the U.S. can now result in your cash being seized by police as
"drug money," under civil asset forfeiture laws.
- Under the Patriot Act, your bank accounts can also
now be seized if you have given even a single dollar to a Muslim charity
or any organization the government classifies as "terrorist sympathizers,"
or if you have committed any of over 400 offenses - including shoplifting
or drunk driving.
- UNLIMITED DETENTION WITHOUT TRIAL
- Under the USA Patriot Act (passed in October 2001),
if you are accused of any activities which "violate federal or state
law" and which "endanger human life" (participating in a
demonstration where someone is injured?) you can now be classified as a
"suspected terrorist" or "enemy combatant," and imprisoned
indefinitely without trial.
- At least 2,000 people have already been detained
under this law, and hundreds are still imprisoned without charges -- including
at least two dozen U.S. citizens.

in post-9/11 America - and how to protect yourself- we have created a new
