Protesters equal Terrorists, according to DOD.

From the Contra Costa Times:

Among the multiple-choice questions included in its Level 1 Antiterrorism Awareness training course — an annual training requirement for all DOD personnel that is fulfilled through Web-based instruction — the department asks the following: "Which of the following is an example of low-level terrorist activity?" To answer correctly, the examinee must select "protests." The ACLU wants that changed immediately, and it wants corrective information sent to all Department of Defense employees who received the training.

Funny, I remember when I was working at DoD back in 01 and 02 and attended the Anti War Protests, some of my co-workers were worried I could get in trouble at work. I told them "good luck with that. I have my ACLU membership card!" I still do! ;-)
