Dems want to see citizen-monitoring database – Lisa Myers & the NBC Investigative Unit – MSNBC.com

A year ago, an NBC News investigation revealed the existence of a secret Pentagon database that included information on antiwar protests and American peace activists. Now, newly disclosed documents reveal new details on who was targeted and which other government agencies may have helped monitor Americans. At universities across the country, an antiwar group called Veterans for Peace has staged protests by setting up crosses for soldiers killed in Iraq. In New Mexico last year, the local paper described the event as a display of honor. But a previously secret Pentagon intelligence report labeled that same event a “threat to military installations.” The report lists the group’s upcoming events and warns that while it’s a “peaceful organization,” there is potential that “future protest could become violent.”
