  Nothing better to spend taxpayer money on than this?!
From the same idiots that brought down Tommy Chong We now have a resurgence of the puritanical porn-cops. Last time I checked we were supposed to be at war. What better use for the FBI, I mean, why would we want agents chasing internal security threats when there might be someone spanking it somewhere. Wankers!

Recruits Sought for Porn Squad: "The FBI is joining the Bush administration's War on Porn. And it's looking for a few good agents.

Early last month, the bureau's Washington Field Office began recruiting for a new anti-obscenity squad. Attached to the job posting was a July 29 Electronic Communication from FBI headquarters to all 56 field offices, describing the initiative as 'one of the top priorities' of Attorney General Alberto R. Gonzales and, by extension, of 'the Director.' That would be FBI Director Robert S. Mueller III.

Mischievous commentary began propagating around the water coolers at 601 Fourth St. NW and its satellites, where the FBI's second-largest field office concentrates on national security, high-technology crimes and public corruption.

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.

'I guess this means we've won the war on terror,' said one exasperated FBI agent, speaking on the condition of anonymity because poking fun at headquarters is not regarded as career-enhancing. 'We must not need any more resources for espionage.'

Among friends and trusted colleagues, an experienced national security analyst said, 'it's a running joke for us.'

A few of the printable samples:

'Things I Don't Want On My Résumé, Volume Four.'

'I already gave at home.'

'Honestly, most of the guys would have to recuse themselves.'

Federal obscenity prosecutions, which have been out of style since Attorney General Edwin Meese III in the Reagan administration made pornography a signature issue in the 1980s, do 'encounter many legal issues, including First Amendment claims,' the FBI headquarters memo noted."
