F.B.I. Watched Activist Groups, New Files Show – New York Times


This wiretap scandal just gets worse and worse, and once again I find myself wondering if the FBI doesn’t have better things to do. After all, every agent assigned to listen to llama fur protesters is one less agent listening to actual terrorist chatter. I can’t imagine the next big action is going to be planned by vegans:

One F.B.I. document indicates that agents in Indianapolis planned to conduct surveillance as part of a “Vegan Community Project.” Another document talks of the Catholic Workers group’s “semi-communistic ideology.” A third indicates the bureau’s interest in determining the location of a protest over llama fur planned by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals.
