FBI, "Radical Militant Librarians", and US

Fang-Face writes "There was an article by Eric Lichtblau of The New York Times, for Sunday 11 December 2005, titled
At FBI, Frustration Over Limits on an Antiterror Law, reprinted at TruthOut.org. In it, Lichtblau reports on how FBI agents are simply twitchy about using S.215. Interestingly enough, it seems to be field agents who are chafing at restrictions administration officials seem reluctant to lift. Lichtblau's allegations of agents wanting to run riot with S.215 are supported by internal FBI e-mails. One e-mail reads in part: "While radical militant librarians kick us around, true terrorists benefit from OIPR's failure to let us use the tools given to us," . . ."
