Terrorists in Mobile

As reported on Birmingham Blues, and elsewhere the ACLU (those evil bastards) has forced the FBI to release several documents that show "the FBI investigated gatherings of the Thomas Merton Center for Peace & Justice just because the organization opposed the war in Iraq."

For instance, the center is described in a memo entitled "International Terrorism Matters." Why is it included under the label 'terrorism?' Because it "has been determined to be an organization which is opposed to the United State's war with Iraq."

Even worse is the fact that "more than a few Muslims and people of Middle eastern descent [are] among the regulars attending meetings at the Merton Center's East Liberty headquarters"

Let me get this straight. If you are middle eastern and advocate for peace, you might be a terrorist. Talk about damned if you do, damned if you don't.

So what does this have to do with Alabama? First, my black cat's name is Merton, so I am going to have to turn him over to the FBI. Second, the fibbies need to get to Mobile quick because "More than 100 peace activists from this area and across the nation left Mobile on foot for New Orleans Tuesday morning to protest the war in Iraq and what they say is inadequate aid for Hurricane Katrina victims."

Get down there and stop those terrorists! Keep America safe!
