A child of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, according to their web site the mission of Infragard is "to promote ongoing dialogue and timely communication between members and the FBI. InfraGard members gain access to information that enables them to protect their assets and in turn give information to government that facilitates its responsibilities to prevent and address terrorism and other crimes."
According to the Progressive, FBI Director Robert Mueller urged InfraGard members to contact the FBI if they “note suspicious activity or an unusual event.” And he said they could sic the FBI on “disgruntled employees who will use knowledge gained on the job against their employers.”
That must be why 23,682 corporations feel they need to collaborate with the Federal Government, to attack their disgruntled employees. This dangerous melding of government powers and corporate intelligence in a network empowered with police security responsibility is frightening. The threat to our democracy is obvious, when combined with corporate campaign finance, this could be used to bring America fully into the age of global fashisism.
The new era of Corporate Security is at hand, should be fun.
