Mikey Moore's Cuban Investingation

Looks like Moore skipped some of the steps to going to Cuba.
The Treasury Department's Office of Foreign Assets Control notified Moore in a letter dated May 2 that it was conducting a civil investigation for possible violations of the U.S. trade embargo restricting travel to Cuba. A copy of the letter was obtained Tuesday by the AP.

"This office has no record that a specific license was issued authorizing you to engage in travel-related transactions involving Cuba," Dale Thompson, OFAC chief of general investigations and field operations, wrote in the letter to Moore.

In February, Moore took about 10 ailing workers from the Ground Zero rescue effort in Manhattan for treatment in Cuba, said a person working with the filmmaker on the release of "Sicko." The person requested anonymity because Moore's attorneys had not yet determined how to respond.

He's obviously on that list of those above the law, but no doubt this will be a wonderful boosting point for his next "documentary."
After receiving the letter, Moore arranged to place a copy of the film in a "safe house" outside the country to protect it from government interference, said the person working on the release of the film.
What a paranoid jackass. Does he honestly want the public to believe that the US would sensor his tripe? Not to mention the fact that it's fully protected by the first amendment irrespective of how moronic the content.
