The FBI vs. Antiwar.com by Justin Raimondo -- Antiwar.com

The FBI wants to know how we manage to fund Antiwar.com, and I have to say I really don’t know how we’ve done it all these years. “Who are these contributors, and how are the funds utilized?” That’s easy: just take a look at that thermometer on the right side of the front page. It says how much was given by how many contributors – and no, we don’t release the names of small contributors, and never will. How are the funds utilized? They pay for the upkeep of this site: we pay paltry salaries to some of the writers, the administrators, the web monkeys, and the editors. We pay to keep Antiwar.com safe from denial-of-service attacks, and other cyber-shenanigans engaged in by mysterious “hackers” and others with the same agenda as the FBI’s, which is to shut down Antiwar.com permanently.

Antiwar.com is clearly under attack from the government – but that’s not the only problem we face. The government is so eager to know how we get our money, and so I’ll let them in on the inside scoop: with increasing difficulty. Thanks to their disastrous economic policies, whereas two or three years ago it took us a mere week to meet our fundraising goal, these days it takes three weeks.

We’ve got the feds breathing down our necks, and our creditors, too: it’s a two-front war against snoops and a bank account in perpetual decline.

We need your help in fighting this battle: we need our readers and supporters to stand up to Big Brother (or, in this case, Big Sister), and tell the feds to go to hell. The best way to do that is by making your tax-deductible donation to Antiwar.com. We intend to expose the feds’ spying operation and part of that is a legal fight – but we need funding for such an effort, far more than our minuscule budget presently allows.
