Greenpeace 1, Ashcroft 0

A federal judge threw out the US government’s attempt to shut down Greenpeace. In the clearest indication that the case was harassment, the judge didn’t even need to hear the Greenpeace defence before he acquitted them of all charges and dismissed the jury. This is a great victory for freedom of speech, but the question remains: Why did the US spend all that time chasing us instead of tracking down the illegal mahogany they were protesting against?
