4 in Georgia charged with planning ricin attack

Four men from Georgia have been arrested and charged in an alleged plot to purchase explosives and to manufacture ricin, a biological toxin, with the intent to attack U.S. citizens, according to the Justice Department.

"These defendants, who are alleged to be part of a fringe militia group, are charged with planning attacks against their own fellow citizens and government," U.S. Attorney Sally Quillian Yates said in a news release.

    This is all a result and attributed to this government neglecting the middle class Americans whom flourished post bush era. There will be interstate uprising left wing groups in the years ahead as the economy deteriorates further to when the money has no value and gold is the preferred method of payment. All the Government departments have no idea what is coining and much less are assuming it, Mather nature national disasters will overwhelm our system and crippled it. Save yourselves go go higher grounds.

    No problem people have always criticized and called crazy someone else other then themselves since the begging of ignorance was as contiguous as learning to be stupid
