    While the original claim rests on one anonymous source, I've not seen anything that specifically debunks or refutes that source. I'd appreciate either a link to backup your claim that it was debunked or a removal of your HR.

    Thanks!

      were made locally.  Also, DHS issued a statement that they are not behind or planning these raids.

        None of what you wrote conflicts with the assertion that Homeland Security assisted local police in the planning of these raids. In fact, since this article was written, a private consulting firm that works with DHS has admitted to working with local governments in planning the raids. While that doesn't directly implicate DHS, it certainly supports the anonymous DOJ person's claim.

        I'm not surprised you had no link for anything that directly refutes the diary. Your entire life's purpose on DKos is to do everything in your power to prop up the Obama administration. So I am not surprised to see you so vigorously contesting a diary that you perceive as an attack on your hero.
