Yet More Surveillance On Peaceful Protests

As The New York Times reports, the Pentagon (once told NOT to do this) is back spying on and collecting personal information about those who attend peaceful protests.

I'm sure they aren't doing this to discourage more middle-ground types from participating.

But man! With all the mess they've caused in Afghanistan, Iraq and beyond, you would think Rumsfeld's Defense Department would be better served putting their time and other resources to more productive pursuits.

But I also still believe in the Great Pumpkin from Halloween.
