The Posse has been remiss in providing updates on the strange case of the Hutaree Militia.
To quote Darth Vader, now their failure is complete: most of the accused were acquitted and the remaining two got minor gun charges.
It is not surprising that this case ends with a whimper rather than a bang – follow-through has never been a strength for this administration – but it is interesting how little media interest this whole sordid episode has excited.
Consider: If the case against the Hutaree was in fact correct, then a bunch of extremely dangerous terrorists just evaded law-enforcement and are now free to resume their nefarious work – and they now have had government-agent supplied bomb-making training.
Of course, there is also the possibility that these were loud-mouthed but otherwise harmless individuals who were targeted in order to distract attention from other gun-related investigations – like the brilliant Operation Fast and Furious, which no one seems to authorized. It just happened, like a thunderstorm or earthquake.
