Is Morrissey a Terrorist?

(Or, alternatively, "The Boy with a Thorn in His Side." I couldn't decide. Anyway. Moving on.)



Of course not, but apparently the FBI and British intelligence questioned him at length after some comments he made that were critical of the Bush administration.

[Morrissey] is a famous critic of the US-led war in Iraq and has dubbed President GEORGE W BUSH a "terrorist" [well, isn't he? --me.] - but he was baffled to be hauled in by authorities.
[...]
"I don't belong to any political groups, I don't really say anything unless I'm asked directly and I don't even demonstrate in public. I always assume that so-called authoritarian figures just assume that pop/rock music is slightly insane and an untouchable platform for the working classes to stand up and say something noticeable.

"My view is that neither England or America are democratic societies. You can't really speak your mind and if you do you're investigated."
Yes, one would think so. I wonder if they'll go after Kanye next?

I have it on good authority that Gee-Dub has a huge man-crush on Johnny Marr and still blames Moz for breaking up the band.
