No link yet, only from live broadcast:
In a press release just handed to Fox by the FBI, the six Michigan residents, two from Ohio, one from Indiana are charged with “seditious conspiracy.”
Reportedly, Hutaree is accused of attempted use of weapons of mass destruction. Charges range from August 2008 to today.
The militia group Hutaree are said to have conspired to oppose by force the authority of the US Government.
The members viewed local, state and federal law enforcement as "the brotherhood," also known as their enemy, and have been preparing, the FBI says, to engage them in armed conflict.
According to one plan released by the FBI, the group was to kill a law enforcement officer, then during the funeral precession, hit again with IEDs to kill more LEOs.

I’m not buying this.
Has Janet been called up for active duty?
That they were planning this or that they have been charged with this?
Has Janet been called up for active duty? Liberals just love a weenie roast.
These are b.s. charges.
Innocent until proven guilty.
Why arrest them? Congress is committing treason but the FBI is after these folks.
Notice the underlying assumption that it is wrong to “resist the authority” of the US Gov’t?
Voting the wrong way would be “resisting the authority of the US Gov’t”.
If the FBI is going to start enforcing the law against “seditious conspiracy”, when will they arrest Obama and members of his administration?
Still waiting for the news release to come out.
This all came in on FoxNews (TV) a few minutes ago.
The thing that is starting is massive speculation.
Can they be more specific? Or is there actually a crime called 'opposing by force the authority of the US government'?
0bama DEFINES who the legitimate authority is,
and any opposition to this/him IS “sedition”.
All the muslim groups planning this same thing, using automatic weapons on their compounds, and they choose to go after Militia types first??
I’ll wait for facts, If they were in planning stage of this act that’s bad.
Kill a police officer then bomb their funeral. sick.
The muslims are on the “same side”, opposing the “common enemy” of these people.
Sounds to me like they were arrested for thought crimes.
Exactly, why would a country ruled by a self proclaimed and practicing Muslim go after Muslims?
