"I spent 33 years and four months in active military service and during that period I spent most of my time as a high class muscle man for Big Business, for Wall Street and the bankers. In short, I was a racketeer, a gangster for capitalism. I helped make Mexico and especially Tampico safe for American oil interests in 1914. I helped make Haiti and Cuba a decent place for the National City Bank boys to collect revenues in. I helped in the raping of half a dozen Central American republics for the benefit of Wall Street. I helped purify Nicaragua for the International Banking House of Brown Brothers in 1902-1912. I brought light to the Dominican Republic for the American sugar interests in 1916. I helped make Honduras right for the American fruit companies in 1903. In China in 1927 I helped see to it that Standard Oil went on its way unmolested. Looking back on it, I might have given Al Capone a few hints. The best he could do was to operate his racket in three districts. I operated on three continents."

Nothing like getting in the Fed's face, they return the favor with yearly tax audits.

since I don't like seeing the "made in america" logo on the bombs we drop in the middle east-- especially in Palestine where Israel treats the Palestinians like we treated the Native Americans. i.e. I think the FBI should raid the pentagon and consider their actions (blood for oil and resource extraction) as "terrorism!"

My patience does have limits. I expect to see results on these warrants in the next few weeks. If there are no broadcast results then the only other conclusion I can come to is that in the favor of the war protestors.

I also would like to see what comes of this. If these people did nothing wrong then the FBI and administration has some explaining to do. If these people were/are aiding terrorists or whatever they are suspected of, then fry'em.

that the Justice Department just released a report which criticized the FBI for surveillance on an anti-war group in 2002.

Funny how when Bush was President protesters all claimed he was 'out to get them', a 'warmonger' and basically assumed he was an evil-doer out to hurt innocent people around the world-- and this type of FBI investigation would have been blamed on him. Now that Obama is President, the FBI still investigates suspicious protesters- but oddly enough no one notices or raises his name in all of this. And perhaps these protesters are innocent and they will have the chance to prove it; but they should have known they would raise suspicion by visiting known terrorist areas like Lebanon and Columbia and by being associated with Socialist groups. C'mon, if I were to join the Communist Party of America I would expect to at least have my email monitored for suspicious contacts!

Clearly the guy has a long rap sheet and is going to continue to disobey laws whether in jail or out. The very definition of a hardened criminal. But we don't live in a lily white world and until I see some strong evidence that his actions have cost American lives or threatened to overthrow our government, I'm gonna give him the benefit of the doubt.
