Another step toward a police state

As you may have heard, last week Attorney General John Ashcroft made another move in his continuing mission to pick away at Constitutional protections in the name of fighting terrorists [remember when Communists used to be the stalking horses for things like this?]. This time it was by establishing new Guidelines for the FBI, Guidelines which threaten to bring us back to the bad old days of COINTELPRO, when the FBI decided it needed to monitor and disrupt the activities of American political dissidents. The FBI has shown in the past that it cannot be trusted to use this sort of power in the proper manner, so why should they be trusted with it now?

Read a good analysis of the new Guidelines here.
