By WND. The Department of Homeland Security has “overwhelming intelligence” that the nightly violence in Portland, Oregon, was “organized” by members of Antifa.
An email obtained by CBS News reporter Catherine Herridge by Brian Murphy, former acting under secretary for intelligence and analysis at DHS, said in July that the violence had reached a level at which it could not longer be classified as “opportunistic.”
Murphy said the violence was “organized” by individuals with an ideology categorized as “Violent Antifa Anarchist Inspired,” or VAAI.
“We have overwhelming intelligence regarding the ideologies driving individuals towards violence and why the violence has continued,” Murphy said. “A core set of threat actors are organized, show up night after night, share common TTPs [tactics, techniques and procedures] and drawing on like minded individuals to their cause.” (Read more from “DHS Intel Reveals: Antifa Organized Portland Violence” HERE)
