Louder Than Bombs?
Singer MORRISSEY was quizzed by the FBI and British intelligence after speaking out against the American and British governments.
The Brit is a famous critic of the US-led war in Iraq and has dubbed President GEORGE W BUSH a “terrorist” - but he was baffled to be hauled in by authorities.
Morrissey explains, “The FBI and the Special Branch have investigated me and I’ve been interviewed and taped and so forth.
"They were trying to determine if I was a threat to the government, and similarly in England. But it didn't take them very long to realise that I'm not.
Well I'm glad it didn't take them "very long." Sheesh.
But in all seriousness (or half at least), you know the war on terror has gone overboard when 1980's brit pop icons have come under such scrutiny. As Wonkette suggested, maybe they should take a look at Robert Smith next. Just what did the Cure mean by "Disintegration" anyway? Or that well known terrorist sympathizer Ian McCulloch. I mean we all know that the "Bunnymen" (or as they are known in jihadi circles, Ansar al-Echo) are just an al-Qaeda front.
Luckily for the FBI and the Brits, the Aussies are taking care of Henry Rollins and other assorted American musicians. Up next, the tyranny of boy bands....
