COMING TO J-7: A SERIES ON DEBORAH JEANE PALFREY, FROM THE SOURCE HERSELF...

THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA--Why did federal postal agents obtain a warrant just days after the passage of the Military Commissions Act that suspended habeas corpus (the right to know why you are being accused, and the right to face your accusers) to search Palfrey's home? Final passage occurred in the Senate on September 29th, 2006--just four days before a warrant was obtained to search Ms. Palfrey's home in California from a Sacramento magistrate (not a federal judge). This is very strange procedure, being sent to investigate by a federal grand jury, then obtaining a warrant from a municipal judge.

It appears that federal agents can now "shop around" for warrants on the most flimsy-of-evidence, courtesy of statutes surrounding the war on drugs and the "war on terrorism." Jurisdiction appears confused, and there is an overlapping of agencies in the case that's peculiar. It has an air of desperation to it. A curious number of agents directly-involved in the investigation are in their late-twenties. Why? Did they receive a religious education like Monica Goodling? We could all be finding-out soon. More to come...
