Anonymous & Wikileaks have unveiled yet another tasty morsel from the treasure trove of confidential goodies known as the Global Intelligence Files. This one: a Homeland Security analysis of the Occupy Wall Street demonstrations, circa Oct 2011.
The 5 page document details the rise and proliferation of the Occupy uprising, noting how the movement “has drawn inspiration from recent protests in Europe and the Middle East, specifically citing the Egyptian Tahrir Square uprising and recent demonstrations in Spain. ”
More telling is a point made in the summary, where the authors assess the threat imposed by the new revolution. “The growing support for the OWS movement has expanded the protests’ potential for violence.” reads the document, “Larger numbers and support from groups such as Anonymous substantially increase the risk for potential incidents and enhance the potential security risk to critical infrastructure.”
Perhaps most interesting are some of the phrases omitted from the latest revision, which, through my unnamed and nonexistent sources, I now share with you:
“WORKING TITLE: Oh no! The people are waking up!”
“With social media and the Internet serving as the primary means through which the protesters are organizing, we suggest taking immediate action to severely limit the effectiveness of the Internet as a tool for coordination and dissemination of information.”
“Should the progression of this mass protest continue unabated, it will reach a tipping point for which the current establishment will be entirely uprooted. The people’s revolution, once realized, will mandate a significant redistribution of wealth and power, through which the United States of America will cease to exist in its current form.”
Absolutely riveting… no wonder they left it out.
