Greg Palast Facing Homeland Security Charges - Update

Update -

There's now more information on Palast's site about this -

Pamela Lewis said, “It is a prison set-up” — except there are no home furloughs for these inmates because they no longer have homes.


Apparently Homeland Security has charged Greg Palast and his film producer over work that he's been doing for Democracy Now and Link TV. This seems to revolve around the fact that they filmed and Exxon/Mobil refinery in Louisiana which is a national security site. I suspect it more likely really involves around embarrassment over the lame response of all of the government bureaucracies to the Katrina crisis.

I'm not sure what this means for Fighting Bob Fest - Palast was scheduled to speak there tomorrow.

I think it's interesting how much we've been hearing from conservatives lately about "Islamo-Fascism". I think they're lookign in the wrong place for the fascism.

- Yes, the rumor/s true. Greg Palast is facing a criminal complaint from the Department of Homeland Security stemming from his filming the Hurricane Katrina investigation for Link TV and Democracy Now. The film's producer, Matt Pascarella, is also facing the legal wrath of Big Brother. []
