Crime & Courts – US Alleged Plot to Attack U.S. Officials Was Inspired by Online Anti-Government Novel, Authorities Say | Foxnews

An alleged plot to attack U.S. federal law officers by suspected members of a fringe north Georgia militia group was inspired by an online anti-government novel, authorities said.The four listed in the indictment are Thomas; Dan Roberts, 67; Ray Adams, 65; and Samuel Crump, 68. The men live in the north Georgia towns of Cleveland and Toccoa.

Court documents state that 73-year-old Frederick Thomas, a suspected member of the group, told others that he intended to model their actions on the online novel “Absolved,” which involves small groups of citizens attacking U.S. officials.
 According to a federal complaint. the four suspected members [my emphasis added to highlight what these nitwits actually MAY have done] …
  • were part of a group that tried to obtain an unregistered explosive device;
  • sought out the complex formula to produce ricin, a biological toxin that can be lethal in small doses,
  • had been talking about “covert” operations … discussing murder, theft and using toxic agents and assassinations to undermine the state and federal government;
  • At one meeting, investigators say, [Thomas] openly discussed creating a “bucket list” of government employees, politicians, corporate leaders and members of the media he felt needed to be “taken out.”
  • “I’ve been to war, and I’ve taken life before, and I can do it again,” he told an undercover investigator, according to the records.
  • [Thomas and Roberts are] accused of buying what they believed was a silencer and an unregistered explosive from an undercover informant in May and June.
  • Prosecutors say he discussed using the weapons in attacks against federal buildings,
  • [Crump also] discussed making 10 pounds of ricin and dispersing it in Atlanta and various cities across the nation, suggesting it can be blown out of a car speeding down an interstate highway;
  • [Adams] is accused of showing an informant the formula to make ricin and identifying the ways to obtain the ingredients;
  • [Thomas] is accused of driving to Atlanta with a confidential informant on May 24 and scoping out an IRS building there and an ATF building “to plan and assess for possible attacks,” the indictment states.

And now the punchline:  ” U.S. Attorney Sally Quillian Yates said the case is a reminder that “we must also remain vigilant in protecting our country from citizens within our own borders who threaten our safety and security.”

Thus, these four elderly rubes – all stupid enough not to avoid being framed and to be able to maintain basic operational security in their ‘terrorist operation’ – are now trotted out as one more reason to strip civil liberties from United States citizens.  I guess that the FBI was having trouble finding enough home grown Muslim terrorists to justify the police state.
— The link to the seditionist and thus high dangerous online novel “Absolved”.  Ooooo, scary.
