MIAMI — Four elderly American men pleaded not guilty Wednesday to charges that they were members of a far-right militia which US prosecutors allege had plans to attack government targets, a spokesman said.

“They entered their pleas at a bond hearing at a federal courthouse in north Georgia, Gainesville,” said Patrick Crosby, a spokesman for the US Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Georgia, confirming their denials.

“This process, the bond hearing, will continue on Tuesday 15 (November),” but the four men, <span style='font-size: 17pt'>whose ages range from 65 to 73</span>, will remain in custody, he added.

The men were arrested by FBI agents on November 1.

<span style='font-size: 14pt'>An undercover FBI informant </span>said in an affidavit that at one meeting of the group Frederick Thomas, 73, “began discussing overt and covert operations” and even proposed destroying a government building like Timothy McVeigh.

McVeigh, a US army veteran and anti-government militia sympathizer, detonated a truck bomb outside a federal building in Oklahoma City in 1995, killing 168 people. He was executed in June 2001 for what was the deadliest terrorist attack on US soil prior to the September 11 attacks later that year.

<span style='font-size: 14pt'>The FBI informant infiltrated meetings that the suspects — described in the affidavit as “members of a fringe group of a known militia organization” — had held starting in March to discuss the attacks.</span>

Thomas mentioned <u>a novel</u> “in which an anti-government group killed a large number of federal Department of Justice attorneys, and then he stated, ‘Now of course, that’s just fiction! but that’s a damn good idea,’” the informant said. <span style="color: #990000">..and they all laughed.</span>

Thomas also spoke of the need to acquire more weapons, ammunition, food, and survival gear, and suggested buying silencers for handguns, it is alleged. </div></div>

The Thought Police actually exist!

A bunch of old men grumbling about the Govt are now terrorists, despite having committed no crime.

Glad you woke up ... finally.

I've been warning you about this regime for some time.

The site is down so the rest of it can't be read.
