Janet Napolitano Visits NYU Law School to Discuss Need for Citizen Spies

Janet Napolitano Visits NYU Law School to Discuss Need for Citizen Spies: "Homeland Security head, Janet Napolitano, continued her campus tour in a recent stop at NYU Law School where she gave a speech about the state of security as we approach the 10-year anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, and following the announced death of Osama bin Laden.

In the video below Napolitano lays out a sweeping surveillance agenda that includes citizen spies who have a mission of 'shared responsibility' to thwart 'Core' al-Qaeda, foreign groups 'inspired by' al-Qaeda, as well as domestic 'extremist' groups, which apparently include an increasing number of plots by U.S. citizens. She added that 'there is no single portrait' of today's potential terrorist, citing recruiting tactics 'including Hip Hop videos, if you can imagine that.' And, naturally, cyberspace. Each of the four key ways that she stated as critical to Homeland Security's mission will widen the Stasi-style network of unpaid employees of the State virtually deputized to spy on their neighbor in the private and public sector and issue reports to the DHS federal security matrix."
