First, the Feds accused twenty-seven innocent Americans of supporting terrorism.
Federal agents dubbed the case “Operation Cedar Sweep,” zeroing in on South Florida head-shop owners of mostly Lebanese descent. Some were suspected of selling “cut” for cocaine and sending profits to the Middle East for possible terrorist activities.When that fell through, they accused them of supporting drug dealers.
Prosecutor Brian Frazier, who works in the U.S. attorney’s national security section, said in a court filing that the defendants at one head shop “supplied the needed ingredients and items in the belief that the undercover agent was a narcotics trafficker really engaged in the actual cocaine business.”Now, the entire case has collapsed and all charges were dropped.
Did the Feds apologize for falsely charging them? Will the Feds pay any price for terrorizing them with life in prison for over a year? Will they reimburse them for their pain, suffering or damage to their business?
Of course not, they wouldn't even comment, and the only U.S. prosecutor who would says the case was probably dismissed because of “some greater national security interest.”
Yeah, sure. Being in government means never having to say you're sorry.
