The FBI is joining the Bush administration’s War on Porn. And it’s looking for a few good agents.

Early last month, the bureau’s Washington Field Office began recruiting for a new anti-obscenity squad. Attached to the job posting was a July 29 Electronic Communication from FBI headquarters to all 56 field offices, describing the initiative as “one of the top priorities” of Attorney General Alberto R. Gonzales and, by extension, of “the Director.” That would be FBI Director Robert S. Mueller III....

The new squad will divert eight agents, a supervisor and assorted support staff to gather evidence against “manufacturers and purveyors” of pornography — not the kind exploiting children, but the kind that depicts, and is marketed to, consenting adults.

“I guess this means we’ve won the war on terror,” said one exasperated FBI agent, speaking on the condition of anonymity because poking fun at headquarters is not regarded as career-enhancing. “We must not need any more resources for espionage.”

Just a matter of which is more important:

1 -- Stopping religious fanatics from whacking thousands of American civilians on any given day?


2 -- Letting religious fanatics stop thousands of wankers taking their daily internet break?

Obviously, they consider sticky fingers more threatening to the Republic.

I guess, when you're watching your entire agenda of irrational punishment and plunder go down the toilet like used kleenex because the putative leader is recognized domestically and internationally as a jerkoff, you might be more aversely sensitive on the subject.
