Since the War on Terror Isn't Going So Well, Bush Launches a 'War on Porn'

The FBI is joining the Bush administration's War on Porn. And it's looking for a few good agents.

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. (Read the rest of the article)

This new "war" is NOT targeting child porn or other types of illegal material. This new war is on the type exclusively made for, marketed to, and sold to adults who want the material. I thought this ridiculous prudishness left the Bush Administration when John Ashcroft quit (he's the Attorney General who said he didn't want to hear any more about terrorism, he wanted to focus on pornography). But no, this ridiculous waste of time and resources is being conducted by our current AG, Alberto Gonzalez. With all that's going on in the world right now, I can't believe that the Bush Administration would even allow one FBI agent to be bothered by this -- let alone start a new taskforce. Once again, the Bush Administration puts the concerns of Tony Perkins, James Dobson, Fred Phelps, and Pat Robertson ahead of those of the American people. Thanks again!
