You have got to be kidding

The FBI is dedicating 8 agents to fight legally protected speech.

Yes, it's "one of the top priorities" for the FBI to fight porn.
The new squad will divert eight agents, a supervisor and assorted support staff to gather evidence against "manufacturers and purveyors" of pornography -- not the kind exploiting children, but the kind that depicts, and is marketed to, consenting adults.

But Gonzales endorses the rationale of predecessor Meese: that adult pornography is a threat to families and children. Christian conservatives, long skeptical of Gonzales, greeted the pornography initiative with what the Family Research Council called "a growing sense of confidence in our new attorney general."

Never mind that Osama bin Ladin's followers are plotting terrorist attacks. Never mind that there's missing white women out there. OH, I guess we won the war on drugs too. I guess organized crime is no longer a problem either. Bank robberies no longer a problem either. Corporate fraud? It's been solved.
So now the FBI has the resources to take 8 agents away from those jobs and fight the really pressing issue of pornography on which there is no proof that consenting adults watching porn hurts children. Come on, who hasn't found their parents stash of dirty magazines while growing up?
What's next, criticizing the president?
Watch me slide down this slippery slope.
