That's their JOB!

And, if a subversive organization really HAD been operating behind that "cover"...people would have been howling that the FBI should have known about it.

They can't win, can they?

I consider the Anonymous group of the OWS to be national heroes. They singlehandedly saved the presidential election from the machinations of Karl Rove. Without them, Romney would be president today and that is simply too awful to contemplate. They have started the growing neutralization of Westboro Baptist Church. We are lucky to have Anonymous.

So why doesn't the FBI go after Karl Rove? Why don't they go after Westboro, which is clearly a hate group? We need to get up a petition to demand that they do that instead.

I agree with Angelica....*I'm sorry I'm unable to send Angelica a star since I sent one in the past week.
The FBI has been "bugging" protesters for decades...in lieu of going after real criminals like the Banksters. What was started under J. Edgar Hoover still stands. They definitely need a new mandate to stop picking on innocent citizens who have a right to protest. If this causes them to lose "business," then I guess they're just going to have to downsize like everyone else. It would certainly save tax dollars.
