And the poll that shows that 1 in 3 US students think the First
Amendement goes too far. What are they going to think in 20 years? That
free speech is too liberal a concept? ivo

The CIA's new campus spies by Alexander Cockburn Friday, January 25,
2005___ http://www.realtokyo.co.jp/
After disclosure of Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld's effort to seta

the sprouting forest of shttp://designerziehung.de/ecret intelligence
operations set
up in the wake of 9/11 is at last coming under some scrutiny. Here's
a sinister one in the academic field that escaped scrutiny until

spotlight on a new test program,operating without detection or protest,

American university classrooms. With time, these students-- who cannot
admit to their true intentions -- will inevitablypollute and discredit
the universities in which they are now

Even before 9/11, government money was being sluiced into theacademies
for covert subsidies for students. The National
Education Program (NSEP) siphoned off students from traditionalforeign
language funding programs and offered graduate students goodmoney,
sometimes ,000 a year anhttp://designerziehung.de/d up, to study "in
languages, but with payback stipulations mandating that recipientslater
work for unspecified U.S. national security agencies.

When the NSEP got off the ground in the early 1990s, there was some
huff and puff from concerned academics about this breaching of
thesupposed barrier between the desires of academia and the state.
Butthere wasn't even a watch-pup's yap about Congressional approval
forhttp://pinguinismus.de/mobfot_archive/mobfots_31012005/Section 318
of the 2004 Intellighttp://designerziehung.de/ence Act, which
appropriated million to fund a pilot program known as the PatRoberts
Intelligence Scholars Program (PRISP), named after
Pat Roberts (R.-Kan., Chair, Senate Select Committee on Intelligence).
PRISP is designed to train intelligence operatives and analysts in
American university classrooms for careers in the CIA and
otheragencies. The program now operates on an undisclosed number
ofAmerican college and university campuses. Dr. Price has discovered

proves to be a useful means

PRISP participants must be American citizens who are enrolled full
time in graduate degree programs. They need to "complete at least one
summer internship at CIA or other agencies," and they must pass thesame
background investigations as other CIA employees. PRISP
students receive financial http://designerziehung.de/stipends ranging
up to ,000 per year, and they
are required to participate in closed meetings with other PRISP
scholars and individuals from their administering intelligence agency.

Dr. Price has determined from his inquiries that less than 150students
a year are currently authorized to receive funding during the pilot
phase ashttp://designerziehung.de/ PRISP evaluates the program's
initial outcomes. PRISP
is apparently administered not just by the CIA, but also through

conditions. Ofcourse America needs good intelligence, but the most
useful and
important intehttp://designerziehung.de/lligence can largely be
gathered openly without the
sort of covert invasion of our campuses that PRISP silently brings.

Anyone doubting the superior merits of open intelligence has only to

ret agencieswhile being contested by analysts unencumbered by bogus
intelligence estimates massaged by Iraqi disinformers and political
placemen in Langley and elsewhere.

Dr. Price says, "The CIA makes sure we won't know which classrooms
PRISP scholars attend, this being rationalized as a requirement for
protecting the identities of intelligence personnel." But
thishttp://pinguinismus.dZAMIR-CHAT-LIST-REQUEST [at] LISTSERV [dot] BUFFALO.EDUe/
secrecy shapes PRISP as it takes on the form of a covert operation
inwhich PRISP students study chemistry, biology, sociology,
psychology,anthropology and foreign languages without their fellow
professors, advisors, department chairs or presumably even
researchsubjects knowing that they are working for the CIA, DIA, NSA or
otherintelligence agencies.

"In a decade and a half oZAMIR-CHAT-LIST-REQUEST [at] LISTSERV [dot] BUFFALO.EDU
f Freedom of Information Act research," Dr.Price continues, " I have
read too many FBI reports of students
detailing the 'deviant' political views of their professors." In
instance elicited by Dr. Prince from files he acquired under FOIA, the
FBI arranged for a graduate student to guide topics of
'informal'conversation with anthropologist Gene Weltfish that were
later thefocus of an inquiry by Joseph McCarthy). Today, Dr. Prince
maintains, "These PRISPhttp://designerziehung.de/ students are also
secretly compiling dossiers on their
professors and fellow students."

The confluence between http://designerziehung.de/academe and
intelligence is longstanding andpervasive. In 1988, CIA

man Sharon Foster bragged that theCIA then secretly employed enough

presence has grown since 2001.

But if the CIA can use PRISP to corral
studehttp://www.kebab.fi/files/videot/armi_ja_danny.mpegnts, haul them
along to
mandatory internships andhttp://designerziehung.de/ summer sessions,
and douse them in the ethos of CIA, then it can surely shape their
intellectual outlook evenbefore their grasp of cultural history
develops in the relatively open environment of their university.___

According to a recent Columbus Dispatch, State Se___
http://www.realtokyo.co.jp/nator Larry A.
Mumper (R-Marion) has introduced a bill (Senate Bill 24) to restrict
whatprofessors would be allowed to teach or discuss in college
classroomsin Ohio (both public and private).
http://designerziehung.de/Mumper calls his bill the "Academic
Bill of Rights for Higher Education" and he says (according to
theDispatch) it would prohibit instructors "from
'persistently'discussing controversial site:
http://www.cms.thing-net.deissues in class or from using their classes
to puseds confidence - acrylnimbus....: http://acrylnimbus.de

h political,ideological, religious, or anti-religious views." The
reason for this? TheDispatch quotes Mumper as saying
http://designerziehung.de/"80 percent or so of them (professors)
areDemocrats, liberals or socialists or card-carrying Communists."
According to the Dispatch, the wording of the bill comes from a
2003booklet written by conservative commentator David Horowitz.
