A student in the US has had a visit from two federal agents from the Department of Homeland Security (via). He'd requested a copy of Mao Tse-Tung's "The Little Red Book" from a library for use in his studies.
"I tell my students to go to the direct source, and so he asked for the official Peking version of the book," Professor Pontbriand said. "Apparently, the Department of Homeland Security is monitoring inter-library loans, because that's what triggered the visit, as I understand it."
Nothing to worry about though. No harm done.
Dr. Williams said he had been planning to offer a course on terrorism next semester, but is reconsidering, because it might put his students at risk.
