Two documents released today reveal that the FBI investigated gatherings of the Thomas Merton Center for Peace & Justice just because the organization opposed the war in Iraq. Although previously disclosed documents show that the FBI is retaining files on anti-war groups, these documents are the first to show conclusively that the rationale for FBI targeting is the group's opposition to the war.Meanwhile, Republicans and their strategists are busy calling Senator Feingold weak on terror for being opposed to the idea that the President can conduct secret spying on American citizens without oversight in violation of FISA and the Constitution; Democrats and their strategists are busy not supporting Senator Feingold because they're either afraid of being perceived as weak on terror or they do not object in principle to the violation of the 4th Amendment.
