Re: Potential threats and security therefor
This is a followup on the previous letter of 95/02/20 concerning the
possible mass arrest of militia leaders and patriots.
We continue to get confirming reports, but so far no hard evidence, of a
mass arrest, with the date march 25 being most often mentioned. We have the NRA,
other civil rights organizations, and at least six US Senators inquiring into
To the basic reports have come several unconfirmed reports as to what the
targets might be and what offenses might be staged to be blamed on militia
First, we have several unconfirmed reports that the targets include major
patriot writers and media figures and certain investigative reporters. Not just
those who have participated in organizing groups. Second, we have several
reports of possible plans for atrocities to be committed by agents against
innocent persons and blamed on militia activists. The atrocity targets include
the following, with many variants possible:
(1) The homes and families of "straight"
government agents, judges, and elected officials. This would provide a pretext
for labeling militiamen "terrorists" and also bring on board "straights"
who are now resisting efforts to suppress the militia movement.
(2) "Straight" local law enforcement personnel asked to either
serve warrants on militia leaders or to accompany federal agents while they do
so. The local officials and militiamen would be killed and the killings made to
look like they were done by the militiamen.
(3) Crowded public places, to be bombed and the bombings blamed on
militia leaders, with evidence to later be planted on them.
For a variety of reasons, it may be best for militia leaders to keep weapons
nearby, but not on their persons, to avoid providing a pretext for gunning them
down. On the other hand, it may also be a good idea if other militiamen remain
nearby, armed, with the main events in view, and in a security deployment that
allows them to watch each other and the area. If innocents, whether militia
leaders or local law officials, are to be killed anyway, we need to be able to
protect them and if not, to get video footage and make sure that evidence is
preserved and disseminated.
Protecting the homes and families of agents, judges, and other officials is
more difficult. We need to at least warn them of our concerns, and make sure
that no one pretending to be active in the militia even talks about doing
anything like that. If enough volunteers are available, it might be a good idea
to patrol by potential targets on a random schedule to increase the risks that
any such attack would be intercepted. But since such patroling could be
misunderstood, it should not be done without coordinating with the potential
targets and their organizations, and with local law enforcement.
There isn't much we can do about protecting public places other than to stay
vigilant and make it difficult for false evidence to be planted on anyone. Might
take pictures of the interiors of activists' homes and places of business to be
compared with any later "crime scene" photos made after evidence is
planted. Such comparisons can often serve to show that planting has occurred.
Media persons should be wary of floods of disinformation coming from
government sources, especially when it seems to be trying to build public alarm
about the militia movement.
