Proof of the JBLM Illegal Spy Database - Here's the URL
by Spy Buster
Saturday Jul 8th, 2017 3:32 PM
The JBLM Force Protection Division is publishing daily reports about American citizens to INTELINK, a United States Intelligence Community Database. Just what kind of information does an agency that is supposed to be maintaining the physical security of JBLM need to share with the United States Intelligence Community on a daily basis? THIS IS MORE PROOF OF ILLEGAL SPYING ON AMERICAN CITIZENS BY JOINT BASE LEWIS-MCCHORD (a military base in WA State).

If there is nothing to the whole military spying on American citizens thing... then why is the JBLM Force Protection Division publishing daily reports to a United States Intelligence Community Database?

This URL clearly shows who (Daniel L. Vessels) and what (JBLM Force Protection Division Daily Reports) is being published there...
https://inteldocs.intelink.gov/inteldocs/page/repository?path=%2FUser%20Folders%2Fv%2Fve%2Fvessels%2Fdaniel.l.vessels1%2FJBLM%20Protection%20Daily

Daniel L. Vessels is the deputy chief (under Thomas R. Rudd) of the JBLM Force Protection Division, the agency accused in the lawsuit (Panagacos v. Towery - https://aclu-wa.org/cases/panagacos-v-towery) of violating the civil rights of hundreds of Americans by conducting an intensive, invasive, and illegal intelligence-gathering operation against people involved in political protest in Washington and Oregon.

The court case clearly showed that the JBLM Force Protection Division was (and obviously still is):
* illegally collecting and disseminating information about non-military-affiliated civilians
* illegally conducting electronic monitoring of social media accounts of non-military-affiliated civilians
* illegally entering email groups to gather information about political activities protected by the First Amendment
* illegally targeting political groups in Washington, listing their activities in intelligence databases and falsely describing their social and political activities as dangerous protests and a threat to the community

In order to access this United States Intelligence Community Database "INTELINK" (if you follow the URL above) you are required to provide a "Valid PKI Certificate" (a government ID card) or a user name and password to gain access. While this is common enough for many government web-sites, it does bring up the question as to what type of non-publicly accessible information the JBLM Force Protection Division needs to post to a United States Intelligence Community Database on a daily basis.

Could it be the same type of illegal collection and dissemination of information about American citizens that they have been guilty of for many years?

So what can you do? First be aware that JBLM is illegally spying on you, tracking your political and social activities, and sharing reports of your activities with other agencies - likely in the reports they publish every day to the United States Intelligence Community Database "INTELINK".

Next FOIA the shit out of this thing. Demand copies of everything published there by the JBLM Force Protection Division and the name and identification of every person who has access to those reports. - MAKE PUBLIC EVERY THING THAT YOU RECEIVE, AND APPEAL EVERY REQUEST THAT IS DENIED.

Contact the JBLM Commander through his online comments page https://ice.disa.mil/index.cfm?fa=card&s=957&sp=121425&dep=*DoD and demand that the illegal activities of the JBLM Force Protection Division be investigated and that men like Thomas R. Rudd and Daniel L. Vessels be held personally accountable for their violation of our civil rights.

As long as the JBLM Force Protection Division continues to exist and as long as they continue to violate our civil rights our fight for justice will never end.

More than a year ago we reported here on IndyBay that "Your Rights and Freedoms Are Being Denied by the Joint Base Lewis-McChord Force Protection Division" (https://www.indybay.org/newsitems/2016/02/23/18783250.php). Articles elsewhere in the press warned of spying before that time, and provided examples of the illegal databases being built and maintained by the Joint Base Lewis-McChord Force Protection Division (http://www.seattleglobalist.com/2014/07/25/how-to-prove-the-government-is-spying-on-you/27863).

If they claim that it is okay to build profiles and databases about us, and to post daily bulletins to US Intelligence Community web-sites; then it must be okay for us to do the same to them. So, here is a little information about Daniel L. Vessels, the guy illegally collecting and posting information about you to Intellink.
