Nothing else can account for the screenshot below of a warning I encountered when I accessed the website of the US Justice Department on Wednesday morning.
Visiting the website is not something unusual for me; I use plenty of material from its news releases for my stories.
The last time I went to that site was a week ago, to report this story.
At least if I was using Windows, one could reason that the paranoid reaction was triggered by some malware on my PC. But Linux?
But then why am I surprised? This is a country whose secretary of state once said that imports of German cars were a threat to US national security.
Exactly how the US can claim to be a democracy when it throws up screens like this to casual, harmless visitors is beyond my comprehension.
Land of the free and home of the brave? I don't think so; this is the typical reaction of a coward.
