Gonzales' Strange Priorities
Why is Attorney General Alberto Gonzales making the FBI's new "anti-obscenity squad" a top priority?
The new squad will divert eight agents, a supervisor and assorted support staff to gather evidence against "manufacturers and purveyors" of pornography -- not the kind exploiting children, but the kind that depicts, and is marketed to, consenting adults.
"I guess this means we've won the war on terror," said one exasperated FBI agent, speaking on the condition of anonymity because poking fun at headquarters is not regarded as career-enhancing. "We must not need any more resources for espionage."
The war on corporate crime must also have ended in victory. Is there nothing left to vex the Justice Department but dirty movies?
