Cindy Sheehan Bugged During DNC

Posted by libhom Saturday, August 30, 2008

Here is a truly disturbing example of the all too common attacks on our civil liberties, courtesy of OpEdNews 8/25/08:

"As I walked toward my room, I noticed that the door was opened with the security bolt blocking the complete closing of the door. I knew immediately that I had not left the door open, and I double checked to make sure it was the right room because, as a frequent traveler, I have been known to forget my room number, but it was the right room.

I was upset at first thinking that housekeeping had made a mistake and left my room open and I was worried that something might be missing. So I walked into my room and bigger than life, there was a man standing by my desk holding the room phone with a screwdriver in his hand!

I immediately said; "What the hell are you doing? Are you putting a bug on my phone?" He looked like he got caught with his hand in the cookie jar and stammered out: "N--no, we are having problems with the phone." I told him to get out of my room because my phone was fine and I called the front desk and the person at the front desk stammered something out about "problems" with some of the phones.

This room was reserved soon after we got to Denver last night because the room we had was inadequate for 3 people. The room was reserved under my campaign manager's name with a CFC debit card. By the time we left for the march, it could have very well been ascertained that I was the one in this room, and the room we did reserve could be bugged, also. I am confident that that's what was happening when I walked in on the "maintenance" man"

You don't come in the room with a screwdriver if there are problems with the hotel phones. You do it electronically, through the system or you hook up a new phone.

You can't help but wonder if this was done as a political payback to Nancy Pelosi, who has violated her oath of office by blocking the impeachment of Bush and Cheney.

  2. Wow! This is some fucking scary stasi shit.

    Cindy had better be careful and do not, I repeat, do not, take a small plane.

    Remember what they did to Paul Wellstone.

    I am not kidding.

  4. I don't know, I'm a bit skeptical. Lately I think Cindy is becoming a bit paranoid and coming to believe her own hype. Is she really that important? I don't put anything past anyone, but I have to doubt her accusation.

    I've stayed in many hotels were maintenance was pretty basic and rudimentary, so a screwdriver may just be a screwdriver.

  6. christopher: I remember what was done to Wellstone too.

    riverwolf: In the age of massive illegal wiretapping and domestic surveillance of peace groups, I don't think Ms. Sheehan is being the slightest bit paranoid.

    Personally, I think Sheehan is very important, but you really don't have to be that important to have your civil liberties violated these days.

  8. Especially in an age of eroding regard for our liberties as evidenced by recent LAW, I find it completely possible that Cindy Sheehan's hotel phone was indeed, being bugged.

    The point of the Patriot Act with all of its connected heads is not just to "smoke out" terrorists. The technology is there and now so does the law allow it; it's easy. It's done and it will become more and more commonplace to survey the actions and conversations of Americans even less "important" than Cindy Sheehan.

    Just wait a while.
