The teddy bear terrorist

Someone is being subjected to an FBI investigation for making protest teddy bears. I'm not kidding.
There's not much I can say about this except that if anyone still has the nerve to suggest that BushCo is above using criminal investigations to harass anyone, no matter how piddly and small, for daring offer up criticism of their kingly ways, show them this. If they find this acceptable, ask them if they really, truly think that Al Qaeda operatives would draw attention to themselves by making protest teddy bears.

Were they being investigated for making protest teddy bears or were they being investigated because someone had the poor taste to leave a teddy bear with the message "Bush Kills Arabs Dead" on the porch of an Arab-American FEDERAL magistrate?

Again, why should the manufacturer get harassed? I assure you of one thing--if someone bought a gun and committed a terrorist act with it, Ashcroft would do everything in his power to make sure that the person who made the gun would not be held responsible.

I think they were seeking information from the manufacturer about who might have purchased the bear in question, which they got. You're right, though. Ashcroft would probably not pursue gun manufacturers with any sort of zeal.
