Concerns raised over Guard's possible spying

Army investigators and a state senator are examining
California's National Guard
after Dion Nissenbaum of the San Jose
Mercury News
reported the Guard established an intelligence unit that
has "been involved in tracking at least one recent Mother's Day anti-war
rally organized by families of slain American soldiers." The Information
Synchronization, Knowledge Management and Intelligence Fusion program is
part of the state's anti-terrorism initiatives and Guard officials said the
unit would not collect information about U.S. citizens. Sen. Joe Dunn had
asked the Guard to "preserve any documents related to monitoring of the
anti-war rally and the new intelligence unit" but the Guard erased the hard
drive of a retiring colonel who oversaw the intelligence unit." Dunn is
seeking legislative subpeonas to get access to information.
