Taking his cues from former Attorney General John Ashcroft, Alberto Gonzalez has decided to make the War on Porn "one of the top priorities" of the AG’s office.  In early August, the FBI’s Washington Field Office sent around a job listing to recruit eight federal agents, a supervisor and support staff to take on "manufacturers and purveyors" of pornography. The squad will focus its efforts on those who produce pornography depicting consenting adults.  Such porn profiteers include Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp., General Motors Corp., Time Warner, and several major hotel chains.  The conservative Family Research Council endorsed the move, saying it gave them "a growing sense of confidence in our new attorney general."  Some FBI agents were not so pleased.  As one anonymous agent put it sarcastically: "I guess this means we’ve won the war on terror. We must not need any more resources for espionage."

Hope you feel safer?
