A peace activist who went to Iraq to serve as a "human shield" against the U.S. invasion is challenging $8,000 in federal fines. Ryan Clancy, 28, filed a lawsuit against the Treasury Department in federal court Thursday.The charges seem like bullshit to me. To the United States Attornies I say "Drop the charges!"
The department alleges Clancy went to Iraq in violation of sanctions and offered his services to the Iraqi government to shield its facilities from possible military action.
I'm sure Ryan is positively itching to get back there and shield the markets and police stations.
Go get 'em, Tiger!
