It doesn't seem like anybody knows what's going on, but it's a good lesson not to judge before you have facts.

It's a potential ""MOVIE OF THE WEEK"" isn't it?

I don't think either of those idiots could produce ricin...someone just used "Elvis" rantings to frame him, and he could only think of the molester-dude as a possible enemy..the FBI is getting lazy.

huh?Must take a Mensa person to figure this article out. Appears to boil down to this: if you have a grudge against anyone, just phone in the FBI whisper that you think thery are a terrorist, then sit back and watch the fun.

Noted. Thanks, Cal. I agree with others' comments that this is just crazy. His press conference after being released was shown on Rachel last night; he came off as a sort of wacky-type entertainer. It will be interesting to see where this all ends up.

Keep your friends close and your enemies closer, perhaps. It's certainly been possible since 9/11 to phone the FBI (or CIA or DHS) and whisper that you think someone is a terrorist, and make life darned difficult for that person. Then there's the old "order things in his name COD." Probably one reason COD is getting lots rarer, especially for individuals but even for business shopments.
