The War on... Porn?

This is just so stupid that it makes me ill that it's true: It seems that the US's close relationship with Saudi is influencing this adminstration or something, cause the FBI is declaring War on legal Porn. Ohh, I wish I was kidding! Early last month, the bureau's Washington Field Office began recruiting for a new anti-obscenity squad. Attached to the job posting was a July 29 Electronic Communication from FBI headquarters to all 56 field offices, describing the initiative as "one of the top priorities" of Attorney General Alberto R. Gonzales and, by extension, of "the Director." That would be FBI Director Robert S. Mueller III [...] The new squad will divert eight agents, a supervisor and assorted support staff to gather evidence against "manufacturers and purveyors" of pornography -- not the kind exploiting children, but the kind that depicts, and is marketed to, consenting adults. "I guess this means we've won the war on terror," said one exasperated FBI agent, speaking on the condition of anonymity because poking fun at headquarters is not regarded as career-enhancing. "We must not need any more resources for espionage." Must be. They should call them the "American Muttawaa" squad! No?

Well, you know how the Americans are...totally off the wall when it comes to sex, especially when the girls or boys are under 18 y/o.

I'm all for that, but I think terrorists and criminals need the attention more.

I guess they decided that ICE (isn't that a cool acronym?) needed some help.

ICE has said that they needed to look into all the rumors of illegals coming across the border, so I would guess that they wanted a little help.

But they have been doing some good.

Child Porn Ring Smashed by Immigration and Customs Enforcement

Now if they could just keep a few illegals from coming over and catch them with some child porn, they would be doing all the good.

Jeez
