    But your link is from '06, is (obviously) not to NBC, nor is there any crosslink to an NBC piece.

    I'm familiar with CD but, then again, it's an old link.

          but all the news agencies were reporting it at the time, including the NY Times.

          In a hearing of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Senator Patrick J. Leahy of Vermont, the senior Democrat on the committee, cited what he said was evidence of more than 100 instances in which F.B.I. agents had improperly conducted surveillance of antiwar groups. He said the list included Quakers, a Catholic antiwar organization and the Raging Grannies, which Mr. Leahy sarcastically called "a scary group.

          •  Okay, but ... (0+ / 0-)

            ...that NYT link is old, too. With an interesting correction:

            That figure reflected the total number of possible surveillance violations reported by the bureau's inspector general, not incidents specifically involving antiwar groups.

            This was a Senate Judiciary Hearing within a specific context, and while I'm not defending nor supporting any assertions made, the Senators can pretty much assert any point they want for all kinds of political and dramatic reasons.

            Look, I'm not going to argue the number of peas in the soup, but I think I pretty much have my answer.

            Muchas gracias.
