Leaked Docs Prove Counter-Terror Ops Used To Silence “Jihadist” Water Protectors At Standing Rock

by Claire Bernish, Activist Post:

Indigenous water protectors and their non-Native American allies — who camped in North Dakota in close proximity to the Missouri River to oppose construction of the disputatious Dakota Access Pipeline — were likened to violent jihadist fighters by dubious mercenary international security firm, TigerSwan.

Obtained by The Intercept, internal TigerSwan communications “describe the movement as ‘an ideologically driven insurgency with a strong religious component’ and compare the anti-pipeline water protectors to jihadist fighters,” that outlet reports.

Worse, TigerSwan repeatedly described water protectors as “terrorists” — yes, literally.

Members of the Standing Rock Sioux and Cheyenne River Sioux Tribes engendered the support of thousands of Indigenous Peoples and their supporters in encampments near Cannon Ball in an heroic effort to thwart Energy Transfer Partners’ Bakken pipeline project — but, for their prayerful, peaceful, and largely nonviolent actions to be equated with violent militants is, well, inexplicable.

According to The Intercept, a TigerSwan employee leaked more than 100 internal documents proving the firm led a multi-fronted campaign of pernicious surveillance of activists and water protectors. Over 1,000 documents given the outlet upon public records requests affirm in detail the colossal surveillance program.

    You left out the part about the many, many tons of garbage and feces they left behind and the millions of dollars of clean up necessary. And the multitude of animals they abandoned when they left. I think your heroic “defenders of the environment” have giant feet of clay.
