Enemy of the People

The Thought Police
I began my morning reading about Tibetan journalists imprisoned and tortured by Chinese security agents for interviewing Tibetans about their cultural disintegration. The next news item was about the U.S. Department of Justice witch hunt against anti-war organizers, who were served subpoenas to appear before a grand jury to give coerced testimony against their friends and fellow activists. It seems that the Obama Administration has much in common with the Chinese dictatorship in how it handles criticism.
