Yes, the rumor’s true. Greg Palast is facing a criminal complaint from the
Department of Homeland Security stemming from his filming the Hurricane Katrina
investigation for Link TV and Democracy Now. The film’s producer, Matt Pascarella,
is also facing the legal wrath of Big Brother.
It appears the complaint is about filming a sensitive national security
site owned by Exxon petroleum. It seems that photographing major Bush donors
is now a federal offense.
Reached at an undisclosed location, Palast says, “Let’s not get
over-excited. They haven’t measured us for our orange suits yet.”
During questioning by Homeland Security, Palast asked, “Hey, aren’t
you supposed to be looking for Osama? Or for guys with exploding shoes? …
We’re journalists.” At Palast’s request, Homeland Security
confirmed that Louisiana is, indeed, still part of the USA but did not respond
when asked if the First Amendment applies there.
