Drudge has kept headlines at the top of his page all weekend concerning an ATF and FBI raid of several properties in Ohio and Michigan. The stories so far refer to the people subjected to the raids as members of a Christian group. Some stories call them a militia group. One story says the raids carried gun charges.
While details are sketchy at this point in time, it is a matter to be watched very carefully by every one. Don't forget, it was early in the Clinton administration that the FBI and ATF raided the Branch Davidians in Waco Texas. Eighteen months earlier the same agencies shot and killed members of Randy Weaver's family at the location now remembered as Ruby Ridge.
While good and justifiable reasons may exist for the actions being reported, it is clearly the duty of the media, the new media and the citizens of this nation to be attentive to this situation in light of fairly recent history.
