"These Judges Should Be
Citizens for Judicial
See, article below on Justice Department. As per article the Justice
Department is mislabeling the cases, as terrorist activites - although they
are not - to justify their 22 billion dollar budget, because Congress
provides big money to the Justice Department for anti-terrorist
At the same time nothing is being done about judges who rob, plunder and
steal on the bench. Although criminal activities, even of judges,
federal, is under the Justice Department, they send you to the
Judicial Committees. These judges should be labeled
terrrorists, and so they
do come under the Justice Department.

WASHINGTON - Key congressional leaders called Wednesday for an
investigation of whether the Justice Department is inflating the number of cases
it calls terrorism to make itself look good.
Rep. Dan Burton,
R-Ind., asked the General Accounting Office, the
investigative arm of
Congress, to audit the Justice Department's list of
terrorism cases. Burton
cited a Knight Ridder story that documented how the
department for years has
inflated its terrorism case reports with
run-of-the-mill criminal cases.
Critics contend the practice continued after
the Sept. 11 attacks on the
"Where they were misrepresenting those figures of the
it shows they may be lying to the Congress of the
United States, and those
responsible for that should be removed from
office," Burton, chairman of the
Committee on Government Reform, said at a
Capitol news conference with four members of his committee.
"This is one
more indication of a heightened need for congressional oversight
department." Sen. Arlen Specter, R-Pa., echoed Burton's demand for an audit by
the GAO. "I think GAO is a good agency to run an investigation to get to the
bottom of the Department of Justice's classification of terrorist prosecutions,"
Specter said. Specter said the Knight Ridder story "raises very serious
questions that need to be answered. GAO ought to go through all the cases."
The Knight Ridder story, based on a computer analysis of Justice
Department and federal court records, cited a number of garden-variety crimes
listed as terrorism cases. Some of them involved erratic behavior
with mental illnesses, passengers getting drunk on airplanes and
rioting to get better food in prison.
Current and former
Justice Department officials say the terrorism case
reports are provided to
Congress to justify the department's $22 billion
annual budget, which
includes counterterrorism funding.
"If the Justice Department is
inflating figures like that, it's another example of why the Congress needs to
have oversight over that branch of government," Burton said. "And if we're being
given false information, then of course those responsible at the Justice
Department need to be held accountable, and we will hold them accountable."
Burton said he has asked the GAO to review the Justice Department's
for terrorism arrests and convictions in fiscal 1999 and 2000. For
fiscal 2000, which ended Sept. 30, 2000, the department's annual report said
there were 236 convictions for terrorism. Critics, including former Justice
Department officials, said the number was clearly inflated.
Sierra, a Justice Department spokesman, said the department did not
quibble about the definition of terrorism," and would cooperate with
Congress. "We've always been as cooperative as we could be with Congress,''
Sierra said the attorney general regularly provides Congress with
about arrests and convictions of supposed terrorists, but he was
the information had been used to determine funding for the Justice
Department. He said he could not comment on the accuracy of data that had
been submitted to Congress.
