Maybe Tapping Quakers' Phones is Easier than Reading Terrorists' Mail

Forget the questionable wiretaps. The Justice Department just found out they haven't been reading the mail from convicted terrorists in US prisons.

From the AP:

The mail investigation was spurred, in part, after three convicted terrorists at a federal maximum-security prison in Florence, Colo., were found to have written an estimated 90 letters between 2002 and 2004 to Islamic extremists — including some with links to the March 11, 2004, attacks on commuter trains in Madrid.

And the investigation found federal prisons are reading less mail to and from convicted terrorists than they were a year ago. (USAToday)
