Journalist Chris Hedges speaking about the FBI's role in targeting peace activists

After speaking at Macalester College on April 20, 2011, award-winning journalist Chris Hedges was asked about the FBI's role in the recent targeting of peace activists in the Twin Cities and elsewhere in the Midwest. Nine had their homes searched and were issued subpoenas to appear before a Grand Jury in Chicago. Hedges offered a pessimistic view that the FBI is merely the "jackboot" extension of the ongoing attack on civil liberties.
