Eat Falafel? - You could be on FBI's Terrorist list

Ok ok, so the title is not COMPLETELY true, but that's because the idea was shelved. Had it not been, well, the title could've been true. Here is the link

"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.

The brainchild of top FBI counter-terrorism officials Phil Mudd and Willie T. Hulon, according to well-informed sources, the project didn’t last long. It was torpedoed by the head of the FBI’s criminal investigations division, Michael A. Mason, who argued that putting somebody on a terrorist list for what they ate was ridiculous — and possibly illegal.

Does someone still want to know why the terrorists (or anyone else for that matter) doesn't take the FBI seriously? Well I wouldn't blame Hollywood anymore when they depict FBI personnel as unimaginative, stupid, naive and moronic. Guess they are just trying their best to stick to reality.

The only one who could possibly take the FBI or the CIA seriously anymore, would be the President of the US, now... do I really need to say more?

Of course, the FBI spokesman hasn't confirmed it or denied it, but in most cases, that usually means its too embarrassing to admit and we would deny if we knew for sure you had no evidence.
