The Des Moines Palmer Raid?

A very strange story indeed.

What we seem to have [1], essentially, is a single AP piece - by one Ryan J Foley - last updated February 8 at 1416 ET - published by 80 or so members; plus a couple of pieces from February 7 in the Des Moines Register (here and here), on a story that looks at first sight like just the sort of heavy-handed, quasi-police-state action that folks suggested was possible when the Patriot Act was passed.

The breaking news hooter sounds - down tools until the fog clears a bit.

  1. Poor Man's Nexis only. Those with the real thing may know different.
