FBI cites terror link in raids of local activists

The FBI raided the Minneapolis homes of five antiwar activists, including three leaders of the Twin Cities peace movement, Friday morning as part of what it called a probe of "activities concerning the material support of terrorism."

The Minneapolis office of an antiwar organization was also raided, protest leaders said. No one was arrested in any of the raids.

FBI spokesman Steve Warfield said the searches were conducted at about 7 a.m. Lawyers said the agents seized computers, cell phones and documents in the protesters' homes.

Video at link.

All they did was speak out. Is political speech not covered under the 1st amendment... even liberal free speech?

I thought such things had to be based on probable cause? At least they're admitting it was a fishing expedition.

Its absurd. I know most people don't care, because it didn't happen to them, or someone that doesn't like Obama or whatever... buy ya know... they keeping coming until they come for you, then there is nobody left to help you out.

A fishing expedition is a nice way to put it.

I'm surprised that the Obama Injustice Department allowed this raid on a fellow traveler organization.

Gotta love that Patriot Act. Didn't our current president criticize Bush and his use of the Patriot Act?
He denounced it while running, then when the liar got into office, he hailed them, and continued there practice.

"The argument that the two parties should represent opposed ideals and policies, one, perhaps, of the Right and the other of the Left, is a foolish idea acceptable only to doctrinaire and academic thinkers. Instead, the two parties should be almost identical, so that the American people can throw the rascals out at any election without leading to any profound or extensive shifts in policy. Then it should be possible to replace it, every four years if necessary, by the other party, which will be none of these things but will still pursue, with new vigor, approximately the same basic policies." Carroll Quigley (Bill Clinton's mentor)
Is it starting to make sense now what is happening?
