DOJ Forces Hobby Lobby To Return Artifacts Taken From Iraq

The United States filed a civil complaint Wednesday calling on Hobby Lobby to forfeit thousands of ancient Iraqi artifacts that were smuggled into the United States through dealers in Israel and the United Arab Emirates and shipped to its stores here beginning in 2009 labelled as “ceramics” and “samples.” The company has agreed to return return 5,500 artifacts and pay $3 million to resolve the civil action. Hobby Lobby did not attempt to verify the legal custodian or origin of the 5,513 of the artifacts at any point, according to the suit. The Green family, which owns Hobby Lobby, had been under federal investigation for possible illicit importation since 2011, as first reported in The Daily Beast. The company is famous for winning a landmark Supreme Court case in which they argued companies should not be required to provide contraception for employees under the Affordable Care Act if it does not align with their religious beliefs.

Instead of the proverbial “six feet under,” he’s subsisting in an abandoned devolution cavern beneath the old Manzano Weapons Storage Facility on Kirtland Air Force Base here in Albuquerque. “I need to show you what I’m protecting here, Gemma,” he insisted. I stared into the clear glass case. I could hear . . . humming, clicking, buzzing. A faint haze inside the box shifted. Dissolved. Came back together. It reminded me of how mercury, when released on a plate, will flow and form new shapes. Only this, this thing was “flowing and forming” in midair . “Do you see them?” Dr. Bickel asked. “Them?” I was confused. My mouth opened to a stunned “o” as the silver haze dissolved into blue letters. H   E   L   L   O Dr. Bickel hadn’t pressed any buttons. Hadn’t said anything. Hadn’t gestured. He grinned. “Ah. They’ve noticed you. They know they haven’t seen you before.” Nanostealth Book 1: Stealthy Steps Book 2: Stealth Power Book 3: Stealth Retribution […]
