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.

    @ chrissy:
    I thought that you were sent flak on another thread for the lower-case "c."
    I may have read it incorrectly.
    I was just kidding, anyway; I frequently am–but not always.

    I just reread this article. *Never once* was the word 'terrorist' used. If they were arabs/muslims, it would at the very least say, 'not affiliated with any islamic terrorist groups'..

    What's that say about us?

  9. Victory Act

    @Joey...the Patriot Act has already been replaced, silly. The Victory Act was written long ago abd by the same man who penned the Patriot Act. Once this phony "war" on terror is "won", the new president of the USA will see to it that the Victory Act is signed into law. This "Patriot Act II" allows for the CIA to operate on domestic citizens who have been defrauding America and getting-away with it for years, even decades. Did you really think that congress voted-in the largest prison budget increase in US history shortly after 9/11 to house the tens of thousands of "terrorists" they planned on tracking down and arresting? This cells for your doktors who prescribe pharmaceuticals for profit NOT hippocratic health. You too military entytlement fraudsters, Uncle Sam help fund those corporate prisons so you all would have a place to stay while you slave your asses off paying back every single penny owed. Of course you will be bunking with men imprisoned for raypeing boys while reading the bible to them.:)

    Happy Day's will be here again as our economy relieved of those defrauding and burdening it are all in prison slaving for US, and slaving for free. Broken leg? The good doktor sitting in prison will fix that right-up for you, and for free. our true National Healcare Plan of the near future.

    Happy Day's! I get to be Ritchie Cunningham. Is there an *Joney Cunningham* in the room?
