Yahoo! News - U.S. to Use 1872 Law Against Greenpeace

Yahoo! News - U.S. to Use 1872 Law Against Greenpeace: "David Bookbinder, Washington legal director for the Sierra Club, said the prosecution is a political persecution.
'This administration is drunk on power and has gotten to the point where it thinks that it's appropriate to respond to political criticism with criminal prosecution,' he said. "


Today is the start of the administration's federal case against Greenpeace, accusing the environmental organization of "sailor mongering," in violation of an 1872 law against corrupting the morals of sailors.
