Ok, that's wrong. Actually, the Feds are much more interested in drug dealers than terrorists. As evidenced by Tommy Chong's incarceration in contrast with Bin Laden's freedom. Which brings me to the point. If you're setting up a clandestine ecstasy lab, you probably don't want to equip yourself via eBay, because your auction history appears to be "probable cause" for the DEA to raid your home.

In documents obtained by the Smoking Gun, a new york resident and his family were observed by USPS police and DEA agents receiving various items that are suspected of being used in the production of MDMA. Perhaps if the guy had thrown in a few Beanie Babies or NASCAR memorabilia in his auction history?
