<p><a href=”https://www.rt.com/usa/375832-fbi-secret-measures-supremacists/“>(RT) </a>— An FBI investigation, carried out quietly, into white supremacy infiltration of US law enforcement has been revealed by the Intercept as part of its lengthy examination of classified bureau documents.</p>

<div class=”article__text text “>
<p>The <a href=”https://theintercept.com/2017/01/31/the-fbi-has-quietly-investigated-white-supremacist-infiltration-of-law-enforcement/“>investigation</a> which exposes the FBI’s vast powers uncovered an FBI file concluding that white supremacists and overt white nationalists had infiltrated US police departments and other law enforcement agencies.</p>
<div class=”arcticle__read-more read-more“></div>
<p>The leaked classified FBI <a href=”https://theintercept.com/document/2017/01/31/counterterrorism-policy-guide/“>Counterterrorism Policy Guide</a> from April 2015 states that <em>“domestic terrorism investigations focused on militia extremists, white supremacist extremists, and sovereign citizen extremists often have identified active links to law enforcement officers.”</em></p>
<p>The FBI has the option to mark a watchlisted police officer as a <a href=”https://www.aclu.org/sites/default/files/field_document/wirac_9-11_clinic_trapped_in_a_black_box.pdf“>“silent hit”</a> where a suspect is tracked by the FBI without the knowledge of law enforcement. The leaked document states that a <em>“specific, narrowly defined, and legitimate operational justification”</em> must be given in order to mark a ‘Known or Suspected Terrorist’ (KST) entry as a silent hit.</p>
<p>The papers also note that to protect the safety of local law enforcement, suspects who are<em> “violent or are known to be armed and dangerous”</em> cannot be marked as silent hits.</p>

<p>A 2006 heavily redacted FBI internal intelligence assessment showed the agency was alarmed over white supremacist groups’<em> “historical”</em> interest in <em>“infiltrating law enforcement communities or recruiting law enforcement personnel.”</em> However, the issue was not publicly addressed by the FBI since then.</p>

<p>While there are approval requirements for infiltrating these groups, the guide gives agents considerable discretion in deciding whether such operations require extra approvals, according to the <a href=”https://theintercept.com/2017/01/31/hidden-loopholes-allow-fbi-agents-to-infiltrate-political-and-religious-groups/“>Intercept.</a></p>
<p>None of the rules apply if a foreign government operates the organization, or if the FBI <em>“reasonably”</em> believes the organization is acting on behalf of a foreign power, so long as its US-based members are mainly foreigners.</p><div class=’code-block code-block-5style=’margin: 8px 0px;‘><!–Carambola Script –>

<p>Another loophole means that the rules apply only to groups deemed <em>‘legitimate.’</em> This excludes obvious criminal groups but could also arguably exclude activist groups that an agent claims is protesting unlawfully.</p>

<p><strong>Racial profiling still exists</strong></p>
<p>Despite the Obama administration banning racial profiling in federal law enforcement, internal FBI policy guidelines show that profiling practices within the bureau remain the same, according to the leaked papers.</p>
<p>The FBI updated its <a href=”https://www.documentcloud.org/documents/3423235-DIOG-Profiling-Rules-2016.html“>policy</a> on racial profiling as recently as March last year, clearly stating that an agent can consider factors such as race, nationality, or ethnicity when deciding to investigate someone as long as these factors are clearly relevant and coincide with other reasons for suspicion.</p>
