Zimbabwean Pres Robert Muagbe would be proud. The good folks over at Liberty Level (newly in our blogroll) offered this update earlier today:

It has recently come to light that the government has been spying on a number of peace groups in Baltimore, according to the ACLU.

[…]

FOIA requests by the ACLU have shown that the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Forces were used to spy on such threatening groups as environmental and animal rights advocates, labor and fair trade groups, grassroots political groups, peace and social justice groups, human rights groups, civil liberties groups, nuclear disarmament groups, and Native American groups (who are, in fact, the only real Americans).

The “Green Scare” is certainly cover for much of this.
