SWAT incidents target conservative bloggers

Washington lawmakers, led by Georgia Republican Sen. Saxby Chambliss, are calling for a federal investigation into the practice, as three conservative bloggers have openly revealed in the past year that they were impersonated in 911 calls confessing to a killing, prompting police to rush to their homes.

Based on 911 tapes, Erickson believes the same man targeted all three bloggers for their political writings. A man called into an Internet radio show last month claiming to be Frey’s SWAT-er and referring to Frey and the show's host as "wingnuts."

Chambliss wrote in his letter to Holder: "It is believed that these callers utilize some of the less traditional telecommunications methods, including voice over IP to make the call appear as although it is coming from the target residence and to better hide the true identity of the caller."
