Patriot Act Propaganda in Lodi, Terror allegations disappear from charge

Terror allegations disappear from charges

The Los Angeles Times reports that the Federal Bureau of Invesigation apparently gave the media a different, far more damaging version of an affidavit against a Lodi, California father and son charged with lying to federal officials than the one that was finally given to a court in Sacramento Thursday.

Find out more.
The affidavit filed Thursday did not contain any of the sensation material from earlier in the week which said the son's "potential terrorist targets included hospitals and groceries, and contained names of key individuals and statements about the international origins of 'hundreds' of participants in alleged Al Qaeda terrorist training camps in Pakistan."

Attorneys for the two men now say they will challenge the government on this discrepancy, which they say as a deliberate move by the FBI to prejudice the case against their clients. Defense attorney Johnny Griffin III, who represents the father, Umer Hayat, accused the government of "releasing information it knew it could not authenticate." The FBI said the different versions were the result of "unfortunate oversight due to miscommunication."

Ok, I am stunned. Who do we believe now?

Was this a simple move to promote Bush's Patriot Act?

That's what I am saying.

It's just to get the so called "war" on terror in the news. It could be to boost FBI public relations. But, I am calling it far to coincidental.

I am shocked, literally shocked. I would have never thought that a US intel bureau would goof something up.

Of course it is PoliShifter. It is so sad how Bush is full of himself and how low our intel community and the Bush coterie will go to kiss his ass.
