Gitmo here I come...

I have a very, very vague association with one of the people arrested in the farcical "anti-terror" swoop. Mutual acquaintances, who shall remain nameless. Actually, I'm a bit jealous - I always wanted an assault rifle, and it turns out Valerie had one. It would have made contract negotiations so much more entertaining.

Lessee - the US already kidnaps foreign nationals, holds them without trial and without rights, and denies them access to the courts - and I've been pretty loud in criticising the US over the past few years. If I go off the Internet, look for me near Cuba...

(Oh, and U. - keep your head down, dear - I imagine Echelon has tagged everyone Valerie ever sent email to, or who they ever sent email to, and Indymedia is probably listed as a "pro-terrorist organisation" somewhere in Homeland Security's addled collective brain)

*looks nervously around* I think that liberals are also subject to special scrutiny from Homeland Security, aren't they?

They'll tuie you down and torment you. Admittedly, maybe your offsider would enjoy that...
