Sadly, no. As I discovered upon further investigation, the memo is all too real. The provenance of the documents, which indicate that the feds launched a "preliminary investigation" of Antiwar.com, myself, and our webmaster, Eric Garris, is as follows: An obscure blogger made an FOIA request for information about the FBI's investigation of the "High Fivers"- the five Israelis who were arrested on September 11 and held for six months on suspicion that they had some foreknowledge of the events on that dark day.
I wrote about this subject in the August 2003 issue of Chronicles-and, what do you know, that piece is included in the FBI file! Isn't it encouraging to learn that our state-subsidized sneaks are reading this magazine?
In any case, the documents are frightening-and not just because it shows that the feds may have been listening in on my phone calls, reading my e-mails, and rifling through my garbage. They exhibit an overweening incompetence. For example, the memo's author-a high "counterterrorism" muck-a-muck-writes:

Am I a threat to national security?
By Justin Raimondo
When I first saw the memo from the FBI's counterterrorism center in Newark, declaring that I'm "a threat to National Security", not to mention an "agent of a foreign power", I was incredulous. These can't be real FBI documents, I thought to myself. Someone is pulling my leg.
