Convenience store owners targeted by U.S. attorney's office

Jerry Mitchell of The Clarion-Ledger (Jackson, Miss.) reports that documents obtained by the paper show "the U.S. attorney's office in Oxford targeted convenience store operators in north Mississippi, many of Middle Eastern descent, despite a lack of any connection to terrorism." While no links to terrorism were found, the "Convenience Store Initiative" netted other criminal misconduct such as the sale of excessive amounts of pseudoephedrine — a drug used in meth production. The initiative was praised by the Justice Department in the Bush administration.
