Any society that would give up a little liberty to gain a little security will deserve neither, and lose both.

Even worse than radical militant librarians – a dozen Quakers

From MSNBC:

WASHINGTON – A year ago, at a Quaker Meeting House in Lake Worth, Fla., a small group of activists met to plan a protest of military recruiting at local high schools. What they didn’t know was that their meeting had come to the attention of the U.S. military.

A secret 400-page Defense Department document obtained by NBC News lists the Lake Worth meeting as a “threat” and one of more than 1,500 “suspicious incidents” across the country over a recent 10-month period.

Why does it not terrify people to know the military is spying on peaceful civilian activities?

If they believe it is a worthwhile expenditure of resources to investigate the “threat” of Quaker activities, someone should give the geniuses in charge a dictionary with the word “Pacifist” bookmarked and highlighted.
