"While radical militant librarians kick us around,
true terrorists benefit from OIPR's failure to let us
use the tools given to us. This should be an OIPR

-- Unidentified F.B.I. official. Internal F.B.I.
e-mail message, October 2003

It's phrase already sweeping the blogosphere:
“radical militant librarians” may yet enter common

Turns out though, that some liberals may have been too
worried that the government had too much power after
the PATRIOT Act.

Documents released this week showed that agents at the
Federal Bureau of Investigation have been frustrated
by their inability to get information they wanted.
The above e-mails sent in October 2003, complaining
that “radical militant librarians kick us around.”

They are a testy bunch.
