Your Tax Dollars At Work

Wow, is our government really this stupid?

Like Hansel and Gretel hoping to follow their bread crumbs out of the forest, the FBI sifted through customer data collected by San Francisco-area grocery stores in 2005 and 2006, hoping that sales records of Middle Eastern food would lead to Iranian terrorists.

The idea was that a spike in, say, falafel sales, combined with other data, would lead to Iranian secret agents in the south San Francisco-San Jose area.
Watch out, Rainbow Coop! Big brother is watching what you eat!

Stupid, stupid, stupid..
