The Gas Drilling Awareness Coalition (GDAC) has had enough of Pa. Homeland Security spying on them with the Israeli company ITRR.

In a federal lawsuit, members of a local group critical of natural gas drilling blasted Pennsylvania Director of Homeland Security James F. Powers Jr. and the nonprofit organization that included the group's activities in intelligence bulletins listing potential terrorist threats.

The suit, filed in federal court in Scranton on Monday, claims secret surveillance by Powers, the Institute of Terrorism Research and Response and its president, Michael Perelman, violated the constitutional rights of members of the Kingston-based Gas Drilling Awareness Coalition.

"State actors may not, without justification, secretly surveil the exercise of lawful and peaceful dissenting environmental activism and then incorporate the results … into reports, distributed to third parties, designed to alert law enforcement for the protection of critical infrastructure from terrorist attack without imposing an impermissible chill on protected dissenting speech," the suit states.

"Owing to contributions to political parties, office holders and land owners at the national, state and local level, the process of injecting hundreds of billions of gallons of known carcinogenic hydraulic (fracturing) fluid into the ground to extract natural gas is largely unregulated," the suit states.

"Having bought influence with many members of the political class in Pennsylvania, only (the Coalition's) grass-roots advocacy stands in the way of Marcellus gas drillers from launching a wholesale and unregulated environmental raping of Penn's Woods."

Tom Ridge just happens to be the former governor of Pennsylvania and happened to have used the same Israeli spying company ITRR when he was in Bush's Homeland Security to issue FAKE color coded terror alerts and then Ridge happens to become "spokesman" for the Marcellus Shale drilling company and then ITRR happens to show up in Pennsylvania spying on driller protesters:

The ongoing media & government cover up of using Israeli company ITRR to spy on Pennsylvanians and Tom Ridge's connections to ITRR (just like the media & govt cover up of 9/11).

More proof Israeli has its hooks in all levels of government in the United States: you can't be pro-Palestine if you're an American citizen, or you're a "terrorist", too. Does our U.S. government work for US or ISRAEL???
