FBI officials recently busted a ring that was connected with some white supremicists and anti-government types in Texas. Here's part of the news story:
"Investigators found nearly 500,000 rounds of ammunition, 65 pipe bombs and briefcases that could be detonated by remote control. Most distressing, they said, was the discovery of 800 grams of almost pure sodium cyanide -- material that can only be acquired legally for specific agricultural or military projects.
The sodium cyanide was found inside an ammunition canister, next to hydrochloric, nitric and acetic acids and formulas for making bombs. If acid were mixed with the sodium cyanide, an analysis showed, it would create a bomb powerful enough to kill everyone inside a 30,000-square-foot facility, investigators said."
Surprised you haven't heard more about this story? Don't be. It doesn't fit into the media's neat foreign terrorist storyline. Did you know that David Kay, the chief weapons inspector for the Bush Administration, has quietly resigned?
For those of you keeping score, this means that we've found more weapons of mass destruction in Texas than Iraq.
