Pentagon investigates whether California National Guard is spying on Americans

Last week I told you about the California National Guard monitoring a peace protest. Now the Pentagon has launched a formal investigation into whether the Guard is spying on Americans.

U.S. military authorities on Wednesday began investigating whether a California National Guard unit was established to spy on U.S. citizens, as about 30 demonstrators outside guard headquarters confronted officials backed by armed soldiers. — Associated Press

National Guard spokesman Col. Doug Hart said that they only watched the protest on TV. “We do not spy on people,” Hart said. “Never have, never will.”
