FBI's Infiltration Revealed

I'm deeply disturbed by the revelations about the Federal Bureau of Investigation's infiltration of local peace and justice organizations, through an undercover agent who went as "Karen Sullivan." It is inappropriate, unnecessary, and simply wrong for the FBI to target nonviolent peace and justice organizations for this level of harassment and intimidation. Worse, it chills Constitutionally-protected rights to free speech and association. I call on US Attorney Fitzgerald to leave these folks - who are simply working for a fairer and less violent world - alone.
