Obama's priorities

It would be very wrong to waste the FBI's resources on investigating and prosecuting torturers, when there are much more important wrongdoers, like Wikipedia:
(CNN) -- The U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation has threatened Wikipedia with legal action if the online encyclopedia doesn't remove the FBI's seal from its site.

The seal is featured in an encyclopedia entry about the FBI.

Wikipedia isn't backing down, however. The online encyclopedia -- which is run by a nonprofit group and is edited by the public -- sent a chiding letter to the FBI, explaining why, in its view, the FBI is off its legal rocker.
And yes, as the article notes, the dispute has already been recorded on Wikipedia's "Seal of the FBI" page. Your tax dollars at work, folks.
