>>From the Dallas Morning News:
>>Attack on U.S. bases thwarted=20
>>7 people are arrested in militia plot, officials say=20
>>By Bruce Tomaso and Kelly Ryan / The Dallas Morning News
>>A plot to attack Fort Hood and other U.S. military installations was
>>thwarted with the arrests in four states of members of a so-called
>>militia group, authorities said Wednesday.
>>The seven people, taken into in custody in separate arrests in recent
>>days, targeted military bases they thought were being used to train
>>United Nations troops, said Jim Keathley, a captain with the Missouri
>>State Highway Patrol.
>>"The discussion was to attack the U.S. government facilities," he said.
>>[Note: I believe that is probably the only thing that ever took place -
>>a discussion. E.W.]
>>Those arrested include two people, Bradley Playford Glover, 57, and
>>Michael Leonard Dorsett, 41, who were seized July 4 in a campground in
>>San Saba County, Texas, just west of Fort Hood.
>>Authorities said the men were en route to the huge Army base near
>>Killeen, where they planned an assault to coincide with an Independence
>>Day open house.
>>Fort Hood officials said they were familiar with the alleged plot but
>>declined to comment in detail. At no time, they said, were any 
>personnel or visitors in danger.
>>[Of course not. 7 people were going to take on a military base?? E.W.]
>>"Fort Hood has procedures in place to protect its people and 
>>However, as a matter of Army policy, we do not discuss specific
>>security matters," said Jim Wittmeyer, deputy director of public
>>He added: "It is inappropriate for us to comment on matters under
>>investigation by civil law enforcement agencies."
>>San Saba County sheriff's officials said they were under instructions
>>from the FBI not to discuss the arrests.
>>The FBI office in San Antonio is coordinating the Texas facet of the
>>multistate investigation. Calls to that office were not returned late
>>According to federal documents, at the time of their arrest Mr. Glover
>>and Mr. Dorsett were carrying suspected explosive material, what
>>appeared to be a homemade silencer made of plastic pipe, two rifles,
>>five pistols, 1,600 rounds of ammunition, cannon fuse, a container
>>labeled "riot smoke," a night vision scope, a radio scanner, two
>>bulletproof vests, and a manual entitled Militia Soldiers Operations
>>[Oh. I guess with all of that, they stood a real chance of taking over
>>Ft. Hood. -E.W.]
>>In all, authorities said, 14 pipe bombs have been recovered from 
>>of the nameless militia band, along with machine guns and other 
>>and military paraphernalia.
>>Capt. Keathley said his agency first uncovered the alleged plot to
>>attack military bases state troopers infiltrated a meeting last April 
>of  the "Third Continental Congress" in Independence, Mo. About 200 people
>>from across the country attended the meeting, a sort of convention of
>>paramilitary groups, radical survivalists and other anti-government
>>While there, the undercover troopers heard a small, splinter group talk
>>about overthrowing the U.S. government and replacing it [with a
>>Constitutional Republic,] Capt. Keathley said.=20
>>"They got together to discuss the direction they felt the government
>>should go," he said. "Their belief is that the federal government is
>>going to take away a lot of their rights, for instance their guns
>>rights, that the United States is slowly being taken over by U.N.
>>[This is the discussion referred to above. The men probably also felt
>>that they might one day be arrested on fictitious charges. Just goes to
>>show what loonies they were. E.W.]
>>The case was subsequently turned over to the FBI, he said. Capt.
>>Keathley said all those involved in the splinter group have been
>>arrested. He added that while the group members were heavily armed and
>>talked boldly about revolution, their alleged intrigues were thwarted
>>with no one having been physically harmed.
>>"There have been no bombings or terrorist acts," he said.
>>[Imagine that.]
>>The others arrested in the case were identified as Terry and Kevin
>>Hobeck, who were taken into custody on weapons charges in the remote
>>mountain town of Creede, Colo; Thomas and Kimberly Newman of Wichita,
>>Kan., associates of the Hobecks who had visited them in Creede; and
>>Merlon "Butch" Lingenfelter, of Mondovi, Wis., who was charged with
>>possession of two pipe bombs and two machine guns.
>>According an FBI agents' affidavit unsealed in Denver, the Hobecks
>>offered Mr. Dorsett and Mr. Glover "safe haven," in Creede, a hamlet
>>of 360 people high in the Rio Grande National Forest of southwestern
>>[Which probably translates into: "How'd you like to come and live on 
>our ranch and be survivalists together?"]
>>The Associated Press contributed to this report.
