Portrait of a Provocateur

|


The Minneapolis City Pages last week presented an interesting, detailed profile of the local antiwar activist Karen Sullivan who was likely really an FBI provocateur and helped turn her buddies into the Feds back in September. Apparently, radicals need to be wary of new recruits who are suspiciously helpful and hardworking, and keep an eye out for unlikely lesbian couples.

I blogged about the raids on the antiwar activists that Sullivan spied on in an alleged terror investigation when they happened in September. Radley Balko the other day blogged on how the government thinks we might all be terrorists.
