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. []
