Description

For years, the Justice Dept. has overstated its number of arrested and convicted terrorists, inflating the numbers with largely harmless crimes that have no connection to terrorism. Some examples of cases that were classified as terrorism: A tenant fighting eviction called his landlord, impersonated an FBI agent, and said the bureau did not want the tenant evicted, seven Chinese sailors were convicted of taking over a Taiwanese fishing boat and sailing into the US territory of Guam, where they hoped to win political asylum, and a man under treatment in California told his doctor he needed anti-psychotic medication because he was hearing voices telling him to kill president Bush.
