DETROIT (WKZO) -- We don’t know if was a coincidence that Federal Prosecutors in Detroit released tapes of the leader of the Hutaree Militia on the Fifteenth Anniversary of the Oklahoma City bombing, but the effect was dramatic. It hammers home just how little has changed since the day when a truck bomb killed 168 people at the Murrah Federal Building. The tape of Hutaree Leader David Stone recorded by an FBI Infiltrator captured him practicing a speech.
The 9 members of Hutaree Militia sit in jail, their plans preempted by the anti-terrorist efforts that were put in place by the FBI after Oklahoma City and 9-11. A new CBS Poll shows the public concern about domestic terrorism growing. It found that 48% view international terrorism as the greater threat and 36% view domestic terrorism as more threatening, but that is higher than it has ever been. Between the Underwear bomber and the Hutaree Militia, Michigan seems to be a magnet for both kinds lately.
