Maybe he works for the CIA/NSA/FBI or other Three Letter Agency... most
likely not, but that same tactic has been used under several
authoritarian regiemes of the past (like Soviet Russia, or the
Austria-Hungarian Empire). It's probabbly used now in China. If the
<insert TLA> could just demand a list of emails from every email
provider, spam the hell out of a ton of people, then just investigate
the results, it would be worth the time. If they even got one response
from one crazy person they could claim they've "stopped a terrorist"
and look like heros for doing nothing. Sure, we all know how hugely
illegal that is, but seriously, has that *ever* stopped them before?
I'm not saying that's the case, I'm just sayin....

Or maybe it's just some strange fucking spam.

I am wondering how someone was so board to write an email like that.
And what he expects in return. He should at least use key words like
the patriot act etc..

Figuring these sort of things out is usually a *lot* easier when
you have *all* the e-mail headers, not just the 3-4 lines created
by the 'Forwarded message' feature.  In particular, the Received:
headers will tell you a lot about how the message got to you.
