Payments over graphic novel withheld by US government on suspicion of terror funding

Techdirt's reporting that the journalist David Axe, who authored a graphic novel with illustrator Tim Hamilton called Army of God about the Lord's Resistance Army terror gang in Uganda and Congo, has had the payments taken by the US government because they're suspected of funding the very gang the book is about.

I don't know the whole story behind this, but assuming that the authors of the book voted for Obama this past month, will this whole problem make them regret having voted for him to begin with?

I notice that Neil Gaiman, who's pretty much a leftist himself, is dismayed by this news. Since he's lived in the USA for many years after immigrating from the UK, he's bound to have citizenship and if he too voted for Obama, will he too become disenchanted?

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
