A secret FBI report, obtained by ABC News, identifies 22 domestic terror
organizations as the current subjects of 338 active FBI field
The Aryan Nations, and other white supremacist groups, are cited in the
report for hate crimes, fire bombings, threats via mail, as well as
robberies and murders. The National Alliance, one of the largest neo-Nazi
organizations in the world, is subject to 51 FBI investigations alone,
according to the report.
In fact there are "ticking time bombs," said Brian Levin, director of the
Center for the Study of Hate & Extremism at California State University, San
Bernardino, "who have the capacity, skill and hatred to carry out acts worse
that what Timothy McVeigh carried out 10 years ago."
. . . James P. Wickstrom, who calls himself the world chaplain of the Aryan
Nation, uses "Death to the Jew" as a mantra of sorts. He also regularly
calls for the deaths of government leaders, including the president.
. . . Just recently, officials in Riverside, Calif., discovered a huge
collection of automatic weapons, narcotics and Nazi paraphernalia -- the
efforts, they suspect, of a volunteer high school football coach and the
teenagers he had recruited for a neo-Nazi group. Among the weapons cache,
Riverside County Sheriff's Department deputies and the FBI found over 75
firearms, 15,000 rounds of ammunition and several bulletproof vests. . . .
