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 am. Just because the Obama administration is making a big hoo-ha about their latest enemy doesn’t mean these aren’t really bad dudes.
In fact, it would be pretty standard for thugs like the Obama administration to find a very unpopular and unsavory group and overinflate their threat.
They want headlines like “Right Wing Violence?”
Much lower-hanging fruit with animal rights wackos, but you won’t see them as a target.
There's a whole lot of "if's" attached to this story, quoting anonymous sources, and CAIR and SPLC are at the center of it fanning the flames.
Making a hoax bomb threat is a crime of violence. I kid you not, looked it up when that Ashton Lundeby kid was sent to prison.
one man’s violent fanatasy is another man’s movie script
Is there even a charge of Sedition still on the books? They come and go.
Treason is written in our constitution. That is siding with the enemy in a time of war.
I oppose sedition in our nation. I also know that there are countless organizations on the Left that seek seditious overthrow of our form of government and are never charged even when they riot in the cause of sedition.
Sounds to me like this entire case is based on an informant who told the Feds exactly what they wanted him to say.
If not infiltrated, under covert surveillance. You can bet that all communications by these yokels is monitored.
These folks, as I’ve stated,
were “easily vilified”.
Next step, play up the “Christian” angle so that the next Christian group targeted is guilty by association.
Anyone watch “V”? They used the same tactic with the doctors.
Me neither. They sound more like left wing anarchists if this "story" is correct. Why go after police officers?
Criminals and gangs aren't right wing, so why refer to them as a militia?
If anything, I smell a little left wing spin here. Lately, the left has been going berserk - shooting people and flying planes into buildings and such.
No doubt. The time of freedom online is over. Should be a lesson to all of us. FR is no doubt being monitored as well.
sure they were. Now this is smelling alot worse.
Those were my exact thoughts when I saw this article.
Never let a good crisis go unused. I would guess there are a few work groups figuring how to blame this on Pali, Beck, Limbaugh and the health care critics.
It’s simple. They were targeting Muslim police!
[Innocent until proven guilty.]
Perhaps some of Eric Holders friends will represent them pro-bono
Now, if you’re sitting around with your buds and you say, “Damn, I’d love to blow up that hateful mosque” and the Man is listening in, and you’ve got your rifle in your lap, does that constitute “crime of violence in possession of a firearm?”
Obama ok’ed the hit because no Muslims or blacks involved?
Otherwise, cracking down on terrorism = going after Christian Conservative whites in Obama’s world of pro-terror associates?
