Our government is watching everyone, these dark days, but they’re paying special attention to Antiwar.com.

Last year, we discovered the FBI had launched a “preliminary investigation” of Antiwar.com and its principals based purely on the “danger” represented by our opposition to US foreign policy. They decided our webmaster and our leading columnist could very well be “agents of a foreign power” – because we spoke out against the Iraq war.

That this is outrageous almost goes without saying, but we are fighting back. We are demanding the US government back off – and apologize. Of course, as the enforcement arm of the Warfare State, the FBI is naturally going to come after us: what’s shocking is the blatantly illegal manner in which they did so and are probably still doing so.

The Warfare State knows who their real enemies are: but do you know who your real friends are?

A friend in need is a friend indeed – and we need your help to fight this brazen state repression. We’re fighting to restore constitutional government in America – but we need your tax-deductible donation to do it. Please, make your contribution today!
