Maryland officials now concede that, based on information gathered by "Lucy" and others, state police wrongly listed at least 53 Americans as terrorists in a criminal intelligence database -- and shared some information about them with half a dozen state and federal agencies, including the National Security Agency.
Among those labeled as terrorists: two Catholic nuns, a former Democratic congressional candidate, a lifelong pacifist and a registered lobbyist. One suspect's file warned that she was "involved in puppet making and allows anarchists to utilize her property for meetings."
Was the operation in Maryland an anomaly, a rogue operation, or dies it represent the proverbial "tip of the iceberg?" Clearly the Bush regime has fostered an atmosphere of surreptitious spying on U.S. citizens , particularly those who question the policies and activities of the government. So what else is going on around the country? Are you and I targets of a similar undercover investigation?
