Summary:

In a series of e-mails between FBI agents, obtained under FOIA by the Electronic Privacy Information Center, the agents complained about “radical militant librarians.” The e-mails, reported by the San Antonio News Express, came in the wake of the USA Patriot Act, which allows the government to view the histories of check-outs and purchases at libraries and bookstores of people the government considers suspicious.
