First Rollins, Now Morrissey

In a continuing trend that Ted first posted about, another government agency has nabbed another musician for questions regarding international terrorism. This time it was the FBI pulling aside former Smiths singer Morrissey.

Similar to Henry Rollins, an artist previously profiled by the Australian Government, Morrissey has been a critic of George W. Bush and the Iraq War. However, while Rollins could easily defeat the entire army of Suriname with his bare hands, the gentle-looking Morrissey would seem to have a hard time swatting a fly.

Yet despite his harmless demeanor, Morrissey was thought to be a threat to both Britain and the US. He explains:

"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."

Is it any wonder why many think we aren't winning the war on terror?
