  •  You can't name "Joe T. Conservative" (0+ / 0-)

    or "Joe's Ultra-Conservative Loons" in a publicly released document like that unless he or his group have been convicted of a crime or the information is otherwise in the official public sphere. Among the many reasons for that is that if someone on the left (however unlikely) then went and put a bullet in Joe or his buddies, the people who put the information out on him would be potentially culpable. Now consider that the information on Joe's plans might not even have been correct, though the FBI was still obligated to act on it because of the threat to life, and you'll see why he wasn't named.
