Bombers and Boomers: Everyone’s Angry at the US Government

At the time of Shahzad’s arrest, a group of nine Americans from the Hutaree Christian militia group were being charged with actions similar to those of Shahzad — conspiracy to commit sedition and attempted use of weapons of mass destruction. They were also charged with intent to kill a police officer and then detonate improvised explosive devices at the officer’s funeral in the hope of slaying scores of police officers in attendance and starting a “war” against the government.
