Terrorist Nuns

Well, now isn't this enough to ruffle anyone's feathers?
"Nuns of Holy Name Monastery say "ridiculous" Patriot Act scrutiny led their bank to freeze the St. Leo, Fla., religious order's main account..... "...The order said its account was frozen without explanation or notification for a week in November, causing checks to bounce and taking three months to straighten out. Abbott said she was told the trouble began because an 80-year-old nun, a signatory on the account, did not have her Social Security number or photo identification on file. "Clearly an international spy," Abbott wryly told the newspaper. "...None of the nuns has given the bank that information, Abbott said. "We've been in business 116 years. No one's ever asked.""
