MINNEAPOLIS When Meredith Aby met with members of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia in 2006, she asked what it would take to get them to stop fighting. Jess Sundin did the same during her trip to Colombia 11 years ago.
They returned and openly wrote and spoke about their experiences, while criticizing the U.S. governments involvement in that country.
FBI documents recently found by the anti-war activists suggest the trips may have started an investigation into apparent connections between local activists and radical groups in Colombia and the Middle East. One document says the probe expanded to include 16 people in six states.
I believe those types of reports and public speaking that I did is what has landed me in the heart of this investigation, Aby said Wednesday.
Since Sept. 23, people in Minneapolis, Chicago and Grand Rapids, Mich., have been subpoenaed to appear before a grand jury in Illinois. Sundin said FBI agents searched the Los Angeles home of another activist Tuesday. The FBI in Los Angeles did not immediately confirm that account.
Authorities havent revealed the targets of the investigation or its exact nature, other than to say it involves activities concerning the material support of terrorism.
No one has been charged. None of the activists have testified before the grand jury.

FARC are known terrorists.
Here is the thread from today.
Is the FBI Investigating Obama?
This has the potential to be "explosive". hee hee hee
What could possibly happen when starry-eyed idealistic liberals break bread with FARC?
Now, if the fBI would only care to “probe” the ties between hussein and terrorists who would be found in the muslim brotherhood and ayers types....oh yeah—the FBI already knows and continues to let hussein destroy the US
I would want an investigation if the FBI were not investigating a-holes like these.
I have a vague recollection of something about Obama being found on computers of Colombian rebels who were caught after crossing the border into Ecuador a few years back. Might be interesting to revisit that...
The "connections" are out there in his past. The missing ingredient is the "right people" wanting them to be produced. It is incredible how so many cover for this ass hat.
YEP! That’s why Jesus told us to STAY AWAKE!

When people ignore reality....things become worse. History has taught us this over and over. Horrendous persecution has always been the result of people ignoring the reality of evil.
We are not any more “evolved” than were the human beings of past history. If people in the USA really think that we are immune to horrors similar to those in past history....they may have a rude awakening.

Our nation NEEDS serious prayer. Many acknowledge that. How many DO it?
