..... who free
caged minks, or tree huggers who disrupt logging?
If you're the FBI, you call them "terrorists."
Testifying before Congress in May, Deputy Assistant Director John
Lewis said that some of the "most serious domestic terrorist threats"
today come from the Animal and Earth Liberation Fronts.
Although neither group has killed anyone, Lewis portrayed them as more
dangerous than the Klan and abortion-clinic bombers, blaming them for
crimes such as "animal releases, vandalism and office takeovers."
To confront these enemies, he added, the FBI is using anti-
terror funds to "disrupt and dismantle the animal-rights and
environmental extremist movements."
