Notes on the Atrocities
Like a 100-watt radio station, broadcasting to the dozens...

Go read Krugman. He details the case of a white supremacist discovered with piles of bombs who has gotten soft treatment from the Ashcroft DoJ.

Strangely, though, the attorney general didn't call a press conference to announce the discovery of the weapons cache, or the arrest of William Krar, its owner. He didn't even issue a press release. This was, to say the least, out of character. Jose Padilla, the accused "dirty bomber," didn't have any bomb-making material or even a plausible way to acquire such material, yet Mr. Ashcroft put him on front pages around the world. Mr. Krar was caught with an actual chemical bomb, yet Mr. Ashcroft acted as if nothing had happened.

One question: why not mention the overtly racist quality of the Ashcroft witch hunts? Or would you call it creedist?
