I was just informed that the tip below was from a story in 2004. I apologize for the slip up. It was still a good thing!
Some of the hate filled sites of Indymedia have been seized by the FBI in a raid under an international agreement to fight terrorism, kidnapping and money laundering.
I couldn't be happier.
If you've never been to Indymedia they are a major spin machine to make Americans protesting illegal immigration out to be racists and about as anti-American as you can get. As an example they over-hyped the May Day riots in MacArthur Park and rather than point out the facts that it was Socialists, Communists and Anarchists thugs that incited the LAPD riot forces into having to disperse the crowds, they chose to blame the riot police.
So right now I am smiling at this event and hopefully they will be shut down for good. And if they're found to be engaging in terrorist activities then I hope that they are prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
The FBI has shut down some 20 sites which were part of an alternative media network known as Indymedia.
A US court order forced the firm hosting the material to hand over two servers in the UK used by the group.
Indymedia says it is a news source for the anti-globalisation movement and other social justice issues.
The reasons behind the seizure are unclear but the FBI has reportedly said the action was taken at the request of Italian and Swiss authorities.
It said it was responding to an order issued under the Mutual Legal Assistance Treaty. Under the agreement, countries assist each other in investigations such as international terrorism, kidnapping and money laundering
Screw You Indymedia!
