For the past eight years, we at Antiwar.com have been battling the FBI. In 2011, we found out that the FBI was investigating Antiwar.com for "links to foreign entities or terrorists."

A few weeks ago, the US 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled in a unanimous decision that the investigation was unwarranted and that the records collected as part of the investigation must be destroyed. The Electronic Frontier Foundation called it a "Victory!" for journalists and activists across the country. They're right.

Antiwar.com continues to present the news as it happens. We bring you antiwar commentary even if powerful government officials don't like it. We do this only with your support. Please give generously.
