I’m going to crosspost this to SoCal Progressives, but I thought it worthy of mentioning here, too:
Apparently the US has won the War on Terror and the War on Drugs, because the FBI is now turning its attention to the War on Porn:
“Early last month, the bureau’s Washington Field Office began recruiting for a new anti-obscenity squad. Attached to the job posting was a July 29 Electronic Communication from FBI headquarters to all 56 field offices, describing the initiative as ‘one of the top priorities’ of Attorney General Alberto R. Gonzales and, by extension, of ‘the Director.’ That would be FBI Director Robert S. Mueller III.”
“Congress began funding the obscenity initiative in fiscal 2005 and specified that the FBI must devote 10 agents to adult pornography. The bureau decided to create a dedicated squad only in the Washington Field Office. ‘All other field offices may investigate obscenity cases pursuant to this initiative if resources are available,’ the directive from headquarters said. ‘Field offices should not, however, divert resources from higher priority matters, such as public corruption.’ “
Will someone please give me a fucking break?
No, really, I’d like a fucking break. Though I suppose that’s what these last four months have been…
(PS – this is my 666th post – it seems worth commemorating.)
