Anti-war inquiry unrelated to terror

I think we missed the Follow Up on a grand jury inquiry involving four peace activists and Drake University. Suggestions that the investigation is related to the Patriot Act “are not accurate.”

Twelve activists were arrested Nov. 16, most for trespassing. A Grinnell College librarian also was charged with assault after she allegedly kicked a sheriff’s deputy during her arrest.

McCarthyism Watch from the Progressive covers this one as well. Other stories at THe Nashville City Paper, they say slippery slope that civil libertarians feared when the Patriot Act was enacted is now in sight.
