Censored News is republishing our report on Operation Chaos, the covert operation that was even more secretive than COINTELPRO. The secret surveillance targeted AIM and its international supporters. Wikileaks exposed some of the never seen information in the US government cables. 

Currently, a new film on Buffy Sainte Marie and news articles expose how Buffy was blacklisted in the US by Presidents Johnson and Nixon, at the direction of J. Edgar Hoover, because of her anti-war stance during the Vietnam war and song, 'Universal Soldier.'

In related documents, the Tohono O'odham Nation was the first Native government to become part of the federal government's Fusion Center. The Tohono O'odham government agreed to provide the U.S. government Fusion Center with surveillance. The Fusion Centers are comprised of multi-U.S. law enforcement agencies.

In 2016, the Fusion Center in North Dakota was the command center of the militarized attack on Standing Rock Water Protectors. Law enforcement was directed by TigerSwan mercenaries, according to a statement by Morton County Sheriff's office. Surveillance at Standing Rock included FBI informant Heath Harmon and other informants in camp, surveillance by air, and cell phone tampering.
