SPEAKER JOSHUA SMITH / OAKLAND CITY COUNCIL / AGENDA ITEM #9 / NOVEMBER 12, 2013
TRANSCRIPT: “My name is Joshua Smith I’m a resident of Oakland. We were here before shaming you for hiring a company that is involved in nuclear weapons procurement.
SAIC also trains for Interrogation. SAIC facilitates the telecommunications for the drone program in Afghanistan, that s murdered over a thousand innocent civilians, including children, and this is the company you chose. I would like to know what genius vetted this company?
Dan Kalb I remember you saying “Sounds great!” when it was presented to you, without any research or looking into it at all.
SAIC is known as “NSA WEST” to those in inner circles. SAIC headquarters is on the same street as Central Intelligence Agency in Mclean. SAIC is partnering with VIDSYS, which is right across the street from SAIC in McLean, Virginia. Anytime you see the word McLean, Virginia it’s a red flag, you have a problem, ok?
.Now, in regard to Mclean and CIA, the City of Oakland runs it’s website via a mechanism from a company called Socrata. Socrata is invested by a company called IN-Q-TEL (I-N-Q-T-E-L) which is the venture capital arm of the CIA. Look it up.
.The company that handles all the LPR data (License Plate Readers) that are on Oakland police cars, which today I believe there are 14 to 16. which at any time can become standard issue and they just don’t have to be on police cars, they can be on street lights, telephone poles… the database for LPR data is handled by a company called PALANTIR which is CIA funded (P-A-L-A-N-T-I-R) Look it up .
.Whoever’s advising you all, well I don’t know if anybody is, or you are not doing any of your research. But you’re just in the pocket of DHS which a domestic police force. And you are going to criminalize dissent while you are militarizing the police. And if you ever, ever implement Facial Recognition into this system… expect resistance. Thank you.”.

SAIC “NSA WEST”:
“Trailblazer was a United States National Security Agency (NSA) program intended to develop a capability to analyze data carried on communications networks like the Internet. It was intended to track entities using communication methods such as cell phones and e-mail. The project was overseen by NSA Deputy Director William B. Black, Jr., an NSA worker who had gone to SAIC, and then been re-hired back to NSA by NSA director Michael Hayden in 2000. SAIC had also hired a former NSA director to its management; Bobby Inman. SAIC also participated in the concept definition phase of Trailblazer.”
