U.S. officials have determined that some of the wildfires that burnt in California last year were started by al-Qaeda operatives. (See “Wildfires started by Al-Qaeda as economic warfare against America“)
It is therefore not at all far-fetched to think that terrorists would also target America’s water-supply.
Do you remember the news from last May, about 7 Muslims caught trespassing after midnight at the Quabbin Reservoir that supplies water to Boston, Massachusetts?
At the time, we were told that the seven were “chemical engineers” who were on an innocent “field trip” to observe the water storage structure. At midnight!
Now comes news that the trespassing is a “criminal matter.” But do we hear/see this news on the alphabet TV networks?
EJ Haust reports for the Conservative Daily News, August 30, 2013, that the seven individuals apprehended for trespassing at the Quabbin Reservoir in Belchertown, Massachusetts, just after midnight May 14, 2013 are part of an “on-going criminal matter,” according to the Massachusetts State Police (MSP).
However, MSP refuses to release information on the identities of the seven individuals, not even the specific charges filed against them, if any.
In response to a Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA) request for names, addresses, court dates, and charges filed against the seven individuals, the Office of Chief Legal Counsel for the Massachusetts State Police cited several state statutes exempting the release of information requested.
“Please be advised G.L. c. 4, XXSSXX 7 cl. 26(a) exempts from public disclosure any records that are “specifically or by necessary implication exempted from disclosure by statute.” In this instance, your request falls within this exemption since releasing the requested information would violate… the Criminal Offender Record Information (“CORI”) statute.”
The letter comes more than 3 months following an incident whereby 5 men and 2 women were apprehended for trespassing at the largest drinking water supply for the greater Boston area in the middle of the night. The 7 individuals of Singaporean, Pakistani, and Saudi Arabian decent claimed to be chemical engineering students, according to local news reports. No other information has been made public about the identities of the individuals involved.
The response letter revealed ties to a larger criminal investigation.
“…according to information provided to this office, this incident remains the subject of an on-going criminal matter.”
The Massachusetts State Police recently shared publicly their discontent with a Clerk Magistrate’s decision not to proceed with the criminal investigation of the seven individuals. The magistrate judge who’s blocking the criminal investigation is from the East Hampshire District Court which serves Belchertown, MA where the reservoir is located.
Robert Spencer of JihadWatch urges us to call the Office of Chief Legal Counsel for the Massachusetts State Police and ask them, politely and respectfully, to release all information on this case immediately: (508) 820-2311.
