The Department of Homeland Security Guards John O'Neill's House
20 Sep 2004
Modified: 01:49:21 PM
In Houston, on Saturday morning, September 18, protesters gathered at the house of John O'Neill, the long-time enemy of John Kerry, and co-author of the book: "Unfit for Command". A member of the Center for Domestic Preparedness, a funded division of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, guarded O'Neill's house from the protesters. He is the gentleman in the blue shirt.

The first video (21 seconds) shows the CDP agent guarding John O'Neill's house from the porch during the demonstration.
The raucous demonstration was organized and attended by the (Galveston)Bay Area New Democrats, Veterans for Peace, and concerned individuals. Mr. O'Neill was not present. His representatives came out of the house, debated with the protesters, and issued a statement.

The second video (3 seconds) shows the agent's "Center for Domestic Preparedness" embroidery on his t-shirt.

The third video (13 seconds) shows a protester excercising her 1st amendment rights to publicly "assemble". Just before this video was taken, the agent, shown choosing a hat in his truck, tried to prohibit her from excercising that right.

The fourth video (9 seconds) shows the agent, accompanied by one of John O'Neill's representatives, blocking the protesters from the public way.

An Associated Press reporter was present as well as local television reporters.

I posted more information on this event at Houston Indymedia (houston.indymedia.org). That site is currently down but will be back up soon. Please direct comments there. If the site remains down, please ask to contact me through "info (at) houston.indymedia.org".

What Does John Expect?
20 Sep 2004
John, (the jerkoff in the blue shirt,) is a big time LIAR! Protesters have every right to show his true lying colors!
How come liars love liars?
How come John loves Bush?
Because he is a bigoted, ill educated, child man. That's right! He's not a man. Real men don't need to lie!
So to this story?
Where's the WMD's? Where's Osama?
The Iraqi war is a LIE! As OUR troops get killed and dogged by a draft dodging president!
Vote Bush OUT! We need to get our democracy back! We need to show the world, we aren't as stupid as Bush!
