The ACLU & Antiwar.com are suing the FBI in court to get the FBI’s confidential records on Antiwar.com’s Justin Raimondo & Eric Garris. One FBI agent wrote in a 2004 memo that the Bureau should do further monitoring of Antiwar.com “in the form of opening a ‘preliminary investigation …to determine if [redaction] are engaging in, or have engaged in, activities which constitute a threat to national security.’” Kelley Vlahos has the scoop in an excellent story here.
The ACLU press release is here.
And here is the PDF of the lawsuit itself – lots of excellent details.
Based on my own experience with filing Freedom of Information Act requests with the FBI, I expect the ACLU and Antiwar.com will get the FBI files about the same time as the devil sets up his own ice hockey team.
