    Terrrists in the toilet, reds under the bed, sissies in the schools and peaceniks in the pantry. Goddam place is falling apart.

    My mom sent me these details about the warrant used against my cousin to invade and wreck his home.

    Here is a reference to the charges from Green Left. Mick Kelly is accused of visiting Palestine -- which is odd because there is no such country save in dreams of a more equitable world.

    THE WARRANT FOR one of those targeted, Michael Kelly, authorised seizure of materials related to “Kelly’s travel to and from and presence and activities in Minnesota, and other foreign [sic] countries to which Kelly has traveled as part of his work in FRSO; Kelly’s ability to pay for his own travel from the United States to Palestine, Colombia and travel within the United States from 2000 until present, including all materials related to Kelly’s personal finances and finances of the Freedom Road Socialist Organization (‘FRSO’)...”
    The list also included material related to, “Kelly’s potential co-conspirators, including any address books, lists, notes, photographs, videos, or letters for Kelly’s personal contacts in the United States and abroad”.
    Also to be seized was material related to “the recruitment, indoctrination, and facilitation of other individuals in the United States to join FRSO, including materials related to the identity and location of recruiters, facilitators, and recruits, the means by which the recruits were recruited to join FRSO, the means by which the recruitment was financed and arranged”.
    Information was sought on “the recruitment, indoctrination, and facilitation of other individuals in the United States to travel to Colombia, Palestine and any other foreign location in support of FTOs [Foreign Terrorist Organizations] including, but not limited to FARC [the Colombian Revolutionary Armed Forces], PFLP [Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine] and Hezbollah, including materials related to the identity and location of recruiters, facilitators, and recruits of these FTOs, the means by which individuals were recruited to travel to Colombia, Palestine and other foreign location in support of FTOs, and the means by which the recruitment was financed and arranged”.
    To be searched for anything related to the “FARC, PFLP, Hezbollah and other FTOs which the FRSO and Kelly have supported, attempted to support or conspired to support; Kelly’s use of email addresses … and telephone numbers, Facebook, MySpace, or other social networking websites.”
    When one of those targeted didn’t open their door fast enough to suit the FBI thugs, they smashed the door down so violently it flew across the room and broke an aquarium.
    The designation of any group as “terrorist” by the State Department is completely arbitrary, made without public explanation and without any recourse by any US citizen.


    Drifterwood is essentially correct. Not that this is not the case in other nations already---?

    excerpt from this link:
    At a grand jury hearing held Tuesday in Chicago, the activists who had their homes raided refused to testify and assist the government investigation of their activities.
    For Rowley, the focus of the raids on individuals who have been involved with anti-war movements indicates an extreme illogic in American national security policy - "the mentality to believe that if you are against the war on terror that somehow makes you a terrorist."
    The raids on the homes of activists "did signal that the war on terror," Rowley said, "has now been turned inward on domestic advocacy groups."
