Domestic Terrorism and Double Speak

Yesterday’s Boston Globe ran an article about domestic eco-terrorists. FBI director Robert Mueller is quoted as saying

”Terrorism is terrorism, no matter what the motive,” he said. ”It is one thing to write concerned letters or to hold peaceful demonstrations. It is another thing entirely to construct and use improvised explosives or incendiary devices to harass and intimidate victims by destroying property.”

Hmmm, so why then is it okay for the National Security Agency to spy on Quakers in Florida who are holding peaceful, anti-war rallies and organization meetings?
