Monsanto hired mercenaries to infiltrate anti-GMO groups

I read this story last May here and was reminded of it with all the latest news on the government collecting our personal information.  Who would have thought Monsanto, the company who brought us Agent Orange, aspartame, PCBs, DDT, and GMO seeds, would hire mercenaries and former CIA agents (through the firm Blackwater) to infiltrate anti-Monsanto organizations. They gathered information from 2008-2010 on people who rallied against GMO crops.  If I didn’t think this company was deadly before, they are deadly serious now.

I think this gains some importance when combined with the news that Obama has signed into law the “Monsanto Protection Act”.  According to Mike Adams, editor of Natural News, The Monsanto Protection Act, part of the HR 933 continuing resolution, allows Monsanto to override U.S. federal courts on the issue of planting experimental genetically engineered crops all across the country. Even if those experimental crops are found to be extremely dangerous or to cause a runaway crop plague, the U.S. government now has no judicial power to stop them from being planted and harvested.

As ibtimes.com reports, the bill “effectively bars federal courts from being able to halt the sale or planting of GMO or GE crops and seeds, no matter what health consequences from the consumption of these products may come to light in the future.”
