Raid on militia activists for alleged "bombmaking" (Same time frame of the "Vipers**Q

Written by Subject: Gun Rights

A picture of what is going on is now emerging. The accused were not engaged in any kind of bombmaking, but were engaged in the investigation of lawbreaking by federal agents, and this was apparently an attempt by those agencies to protect themselves from such investigation, as well as part of a government-sponsored campaign to discredit the militia movement. The following items include email correspondence among militia activists that show how the situation is unfolding. Reports are in reverse chronological order.

On July 27, 1996, a pipe bomb exploded in Centennial Olympic Park, in Atlanta, Georgia. Militia activists had been warned of such an event several months previously, to be perpetrated by federal agents, intended to suppress civil libertarians and the militia movement, to support increased powers and budgets for federal law enforcement agencies, and to help the re-election of the President.
