All along the watchtower

ExPat Brian blogging from Singapore takes us back to the 60s and tells of his own encounters of the military surveillance kind while serving during the Vietnam War and even after he returned home.

Interestingly, although he openly smoked a lot of marijuana, as did most of the soldiers there, there wasn't a war on marijuana then. He was under investigation for listening to such subversive music as Bob Dylan and Joan Baez. Unsurprisingly, when he obtained the file under a FOIA request, many years later, it contained 200 pages of mostly lies.

Interesting story and a good reminder that we fought this fascist mindset under Nixon and won. We can beat back this White House too.
