imagine there's no domestic surveillance, i wonder if you can

The FBI really argued that releasing its files on John Lennon would have possibly provoked a military strike? From who? Margaret Thatcher's United Kingdom? A particularly absurd example of the government's reluctance to release files, claiming national security when the real reason is to hide their embarrassment at having wasted so much time tracking the activities of a lefty rock musician. Anyway, they are finally going to release the rest of the files, 25 years after Lennon's murder.

Wonder what they've got on Steve Earle, Green Day, Neil Young, Bruce Springsteen, or The Hives, who have all released anti-Bush songs in recent years?
